    Sonography

    Sonography reveals a well-delineated mass lesion of superficial lobe of parotid gland, with a heterogeneous hypoechoic appearance with more hypoechoic cystic components within the lesion, and with posterior enhancement.

Axial SE T1-weighted MR image reveals a well-circumscribed hypointense mass lesion compared with surrounding parotid tissue, within the superficial lobe, and causing some bulging of the cutaneous planes. The deep portion of the gland is free of the neoplasm. Note the arrow indicates retromandibular vein which separates superficial and deep portions of the gland.
