Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumors are rare lesions that have been described in virtually every organ including the gastrointestinal tract. The esophagus is an extremely unusual site for these tumors, with only a few cases described in the literature. Surgery has been the most common therapeutic approach used for the resection of these lesions. In the present case, a patient diagnosed with an inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor of the upper esophagus was reported, and it was successfully removed by endoscopy with no complications.
