Patient
male, 19 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Ultrasound image of the dermoid cyst

    A mass lesion, with smooth contours, homogenously iso-echogenic to adjacent soft tissues, was detected in the sublingual region sagitally.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound image of the dermoid cyst;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    MR imaging of the dermoid cyst
     

    The lesion had high signal intensity on T2-weighted images and low signal intensity on T1-weighted images, reflecting its cystic content. The cystic lesion was in the midline.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: MR imaging of the dermoid cyst;

    In the sagittal plane on T2-weighted imaging, the well-circumscribed lesion was located between the tongue and the mylohyoid muscle. The upper part of the lesion had more bright globules in the lumen, but no...

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: MR imaging of the dermoid cyst;

    The thin wall of the cyst enhanced after contrast administration on T1-weighted imaging.
