It is a controversial tumor composed of a proliferation of myofibroblasts intermingled with an inflammatory cell infiltrate composed of lymphocytes, plasma cells, and eosinophils in focal areas of collagenous stroma.

WHO has classified OIMT as an intermediate soft-tissue myofibroblastic neoplasm according to its well reproducible histological morphology. The first case was reported in the lungs and though it may be found anywhere in the body, the lung, liver and gastrointestinal tract are the most common sites of involvement. In the head and neck region, it has been reported in the orbit, larynx, parapharyngeal spaces, maxillary sinus, submandibular region and the oral cavity.
