Figure 1. Magnetic resonance imaging scan of the head. (A, B) T2-weighted very hyperintense, homogenous, almost cystic lesion, with (C, D) only minor peripheral and partly septal contrast-enhancement. (E, F) The lesions extend into the right facial canal’s widened mastoid segment and (B, D) present with a mass in the extratemporal segment. (A, B) T2-weighted fat-suppressed inversion recovery sequence in coronal view. (C–E) T1-weighted fat-suppressed dixon sequence with contrast-enhancement in (C, D) coronal and (E) axial view. (F) High-resolution T2-weighted SPACE fat-suppressed sequence in axial view.
