Inflammatory Pseudotumor

An inflammatory pseudotumor is a lesion that causes an inflammatory reaction. Although benign, the pseudotumor mimics a malignant tumor, so proper diagnosis is key to effective treatment. It does not spread or invade other tissue, but the inflammation can put pressure on adjacent parts of body. Inflammatory pseudotumors are usually found in the lungs or eyes. The condition may resolve itself, but if not minimally invasive surgery will remove the lesion(s).

Best in Care

The AdventHealth Neuroscience Institute is a state-of-the art facility for adults and children affected by inflammatory pseudotumor. We specialize in minimally invasive treatments that remove the lesions and alleviate the symptoms caused by the condition. These advanced techniques minimize damage to surrounding tissue and result in less scarring and pain. Patients also generally recover more quickly.
