  • Figure 1
    MRI T2w-TSE. Sagittal (a) and coronal (b)

    Ill-defined soft-tissue mass (asterisks) of intermediate signal intensity at the posterior right aspect of the vaginal introitus and posterior to the urethral orifice, involving the pelvic diaphragm (arrows) and the...

     
    Area of Interest: Genital / Reproductive system female; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    (a, b) MRI T2w-TSE Axial images

    Axial images showing the mass expanding the right labium minus (arrow) with involvement the anal sphincter (arrowheads) and enlarged right inguinal node (asterisk).

     
    Area of Interest: Genital / Reproductive system female; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    (a, b). Axial fat suppressed contrast-enhanced T1-weighted images

    The mass shows intense heterogeneous enhancement (arrows) and the enlarged right inguinal node mainly peripheral enhancement (arrowheads), a finding strongly suggestive of metastatic involvement.
