OBJECTIVE: The inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is a neoplasia with intermediate biological potential, infrequent, with an unpredictable clinical prognosis and a low recurrence rate after an effective treatment. We report two cases of IMT with genitourinary localization, being this entity`s publications infrequent. Both presented with little symptomatology, leading to multiple differential diagnosis. The surgical treatment was chosen and pathologic result confirmed the diagnosis.

CONCLUSION: This entity must be considered as a true malignant neoplasm with aggressive local behavior. The gold standard management is complete surgical resection, with low recurrence rate after it. A new oncological monitoring scheme is proposed, upon the lack of an active surveillance algorithm after treatment.
