Intercollegiate exam – Viva in Head and Neck – Discussion around Parapharyngeal Tumours

Rate this item

These are a series of T2 weighted MRI images, in axial, coronal and sagittal planes. There is no information regarding the patient’s demographics or preceding history. The most obvious abnormality appears to be a well circumscribed lesion in the left parapharyngeal space. It appears to carry a uniform high intensity signal on T2 imaging but I cannot comment on T1 imaging as this is not shown. It does not demonstrate any signs suggestive of local infiltration and instead the great vessels have been displaced posteriorly. There are no other lesions of note.
