It primarily affects soft tissue and viscera of children and young adults. IMT occurring in bone is extremely rare. Approximately 50% of IMTs carry a clonal rearrangement of the anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) gene, while other receptor tyrosine kinase gene rearrangements have been seen in a small subset of IMT.
