Several disorders related to growth and development affect children during their early stages of life. One rare disorder that affects about 15% of children is constitutional growth delay (CGD). Its results in the affected individuals appear unusually short and young for their age. The individuals are otherwise normal and appear as their normal counterparts as age increases. Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is a rare soft-tissue tumor that commonly affects the lungs, liver, and gastrointestinal tract. The occurrence of this tumor outside the aforementioned areas is very rare. It resembles a neoplastic tumor clinically and histologically. It is also referred to as inflammatory pseudotumor. Here, we report the case of an individual with CGD who also had an IMT involving the mandibular left canine region.
