In this report we introduce an 8 years old boy with Transverse colon inflammatory pseudotumor. The patient was admitted to Boo-Ali Sina Hospital with abdominal pain, fever and vomiting. In clinical examinations an abdominal mass in splenic flexure was palpated. Imaging study with CT-Scan revealed a calcified mass in transverse colon wall with lymphadenopathy and lymphoma was suggested. Histological study showed inflammatory pseudotumor. After surgical excision the patient was recovered. The recurrence was not seen after one year follow up. This case showed that in differential diagnosis of pediatric colonic mass, inflammatory pseudotumor should be considered in order to prevent unneccesary and harmful chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
