Background:    Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is a rare borderline tumor. The nomenclature of this disease is confused in the literature.
    Case Report:    In this report, the case of a 62-year-old man with IMT recurrence of bladder secondary to prostate is presented. The possible etiology of IMT is discussed, along with its clinical manifestation and pathological features. The patient received a laparoscopic bladder radical resection. The pathology finding demonstrated the diagnosis of IMT and no regional lymph node involvement.
    Conclusions:    IMT is a borderline tumor and unlikely to metastasize to regional lymph nodes. The patient has been observed for 2 years without recurrence.
