We herein describe a 4-year-old boy who after being treated for pneumonia showed an abnormal shadow at the hilus of the right lung on chest X-rays with continued inflammatory findings in his laboratory data. CT and MR investigations suggested the existence of a neoplasm at that site. An open biopsy was thus performed for a definite diagnosis. The histological findings and the expression of TPM3-ALK fusion gene confirmed a diagnosis of an inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor. A right upper and middle lobectomy including the tumor was thus performed for a complete resection. In addition to the histological diagnosis, the detection of the tumor specific fusion gene provided objective evidence in making a diagnosis.
