This case report highlights, a 4 year old female child with gradually increasing exophytic mass involving eye ball in right orbit. Enucleation with mass excision was done and histopathological examination reported the diagnosis of inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT). These are benign tumors of unknown etiology. We are reporting this case to enlighten on considering IMT as differential diagnosis of solid tumors in orbit and also early diagnosis and treatment can save vision and eye.

Keywords: Pseudotumor, Plasma cells, Orbital mass, Pseudoneoplasia, IMT.
