Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is a tumefactive proliferation of spindled myofibroblastic cells admixed with inflammatory infiltrate. This tumor has a predilection for the involvement of visceral soft tissues and has a tendency for local recurrence. Occurrence of metastatic or metachronous IMTs is a rare presentation. We report a rare case of a 50-year-old man with metastatic IMTs in the colon and duodenum.
