Inflammatory Myofibroblastic Tumors (IMTs) are characterized by proliferative myofibroblastic spindle cells accompanying inflammatory infiltration. This case report presents a rare case of inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor presenting with colorectal intussusception in a 22-year-old female. Despite ALK-1 (Activin receptor-Like Kinase-1) negativity in the tumor, SMA (Smooth Muscle Actin) and vimentin positivity were observed. The tumor was surgically excised, and no recurrence was observed during the 6-month follow-up. Favorable outcomes can be achieved with early diagnosis and optimal treatment. No cases of IMT presenting with colorectal intussusception have been reported in the literature, making our case a rare occurrence.
