Myofibroblastic inflammatory tumor is a rare tumor with intermediate biological potential. Intra-abdominal localization with mesenteric involvement makes it even rarer. It may have a subtle presentation as in our case, in which the only symptom was abdominal pain. The diagnosis was obtained by ultrasound guided biopsy, after complete surgery resection there were no recurrences in the follow-up.
