Retention cysts are the most common benign mass lesions in the pharynx, usually involving the valleculae or the aryepiglottic folds [1, 2].Pathologically, these cysts are thought to result from dilatation of mucus glands in the lamina propria or deeper layers of the pharyngeal wall secondary to retained secretions and chronic inflammation .They usually occur as small, asymptomatic lesions. Tonsillar retention cysts are common and most often asymptomatic. The radiographic demonstration of a retention cyst in a symptomatic patient is reported. Emphasis should be placed on the oropharynx during barium swallow examinations in appropriately symptomatic patients
Evaluation of a tonsillar SCC should include a determination of the extent of (a) submucosal extension, (b) involvement of the pterygoid muscles, (c) extension along the pterygomandibular raphe to the skull base, (d) osseous involvement, and (e) involvement of the cervical lymph nodes. Most SCCs of the tonsil originate in the anterior tonsillar. They're to present in childhood but in adults, they can present when they get infected has happened in this case where this is a different patient but again, the same morphology but instead, we've got this thickened, irregular uh cyst wall with an inflammatory change in the surrounding soft tissues. so infected the glossy cysts tend to sit.
Evidence of a large posterior fossa cyst causing enlargement of the posterior fossa resulting in an indentation of the torcula herophili, and shows communication with the fourth ventricle resulting in moderate dilatation of the lateral and third ventricles. This large cyst shows communication with an occipital meningocele Peritonsillar abscess is the most common deep infection of the head and neck that occurs in adults. This infection begins as a superficial infection and progresses into tonsillar cellulitis. A..
In the current study, we demonstrated that, at T1-weighted contrast-enhanced MR imaging, most nasopharyngeal roofs contained a pattern besides pencil-thin mucosa. In particular, approximately one-half of roofs had an adenoid mass, all of which had vertically aligned alternating bright and dark striped appearance Tonsillar Position on MR 795 It has been noted that a low degree of ectopia of the cerebellar tonsils on MR is of questionable significance. We measured the position of the cerebellar tonsils with respect to the inferior aspect of foramen magnum in 200 normal patients and 25 patients with a firm diagnosis of Chiari I malformation.. The cyst appears radiologically as a well-demarcated radiolucent lesion attached at an acute angle to the cervical area of an unerupted tooth. The border of the lesion may be radiopaque (, 5). Unlike radicular cysts, a follicular cyst may become extremely large, often distorting the roots of adjacent teeth and remodeling the mandible Cervical thymic cysts are very uncommon lesions, with two-thirds of the lesions detected in the 1st decade of life (the age of maximal thymic activity and size) and the remaining one-third in the 2nd and 3rd decades (, 5 21). The cysts are slightly more common in males than females (, 62 63) Cerebellar ectopia is a term used by radiologists to describe cerebellar tonsils that are low lying but do not meet the radiographic criteria for definition as a Chiari malformation. Treatment involves removal of the etiological mass and decompressive craniectomy. Brain herniation can cause severe disability or death
Epidermoid cysts are lined by simple squamous epithelium and are more frequently seen in the floor of mouth than in the submandibular space . At imaging, they appear as midline simple cystic lesions and are often indistinguishable from ranulas . Epidermoid cyst in the floor of the mouth of a 55-year-old man.. Thyroid goiter in a 56-year-old woman. Axial nonenhanced CT image shows an enlarged thyroid gland (black *) surrounding the trachea (arrow), which is narrowed to 8 × 5 mm. Internal cysts and a calcification also are noted. In addition, there is an indeterminate low-attenuation nodule or complex cyst (white *) in the isthmus. Figure 13
papillae, tonsillar pillars and soft palate, posteriorly; and the hard palate and maxillary alveolar ridge and teeth, superiorly . The submandibular space as well as the traditionally held oral cavity subsites of the sublingual space, mucosal space and root of tongue (Figure 1 and 2) will be addressed. The muscles of the oral cavity form a Nasal cyst or nasal cyst is a pathological formation in the nasal cavity. It's considered abnormal, but not malignant. A sinus cyst looks like a small container that is filled with a liquid substance. Typically, cyst formation occurs in the paranasal sinus. Sinuses are an excellent tool for distilling air and performing protective functions Cutaneous cysts and pseudocysts are non- proliferative benign lesions. Nodulocystic basal cell carcinoma is a common skin cancer that presents as a rounded nodule and may initially be mistaken for a cyst, but steady enlargement, destruction of the epidermis with ulceration and bleeding occur eventually Rathke pouch. Dr Henry Knipe and Assoc Prof Frank Gaillard et al. Rathke pouch, also known as hypophyseal diverticulum , is an ectodermal outpouching of stomodeum (primitive oral cavity lined by ectoderm) which forms at approximately 3-4 weeks gestation and goes on to form the adenohypophysis of the pituitary gland. On this page: Article: Gross. Fig 1. A Rathke cleft cyst in a 25-year-old woman with headaches. A, Sagittal T2-weighted image easily demonstrates a homogeneous hypointense-signal-intensity mass perfectly located on the midline between both pituitary lobes.B, Sagittal T1-weighted image barely shows the isointense-to-slightly-hyperintense signal intensity of the lesion
(A, B) The fourth ventricle opens into a large posterior fossa cyst. There is associated hydrocephalus. (C) The cerebellum is hypoplastic and a thin rim of cerebellar tissue is seen forming the wall of the posterior fossa cyst (arrow). The vein of Galen, straight sinus and venous confluence are elevated above the level of the lambdoid suture Tonsillar hypertrophy is another term for enlarged tonsils. While they're sometimes a sign of an infection, they don't always have a clear cause, especially in children. We'll go over why. SUMMARY: Spontaneous intracranial hypotension is a condition characterized by low CSF volume secondary to leakage through a dural defect with no identifiable cause. Patients classically present with orthostatic headaches, but this symptom is not specific to spontaneous intracranial hypotension, and initial misdiagnosis is common. The most prominent features of spontaneous intracranial. Tarlov cyst is an important differential diagnosis and carefully searched in MRI of patients with radicular symptoms rising even from the cervical spine. The aim of the write-up was to sensitise the readers about this rare entity for its more ubiquitous location and differentiation from the spinal tumours

Another term used for this particular condition is cryptic tonsils as these rocks take. At the same time however survival rates in patients with tonsillar cancer there was a 2.04-fold increase in the incidence. A 27 year-old woman died unexpectedly due to a cyst of the pineal gland with a prominent cerebellar tonsillar herniation. [radiopaedia.org] Tonsillar herniation: Usually, the cause is an expanding infratentorial mass (eg,. Stones can sometimes form in the salivary glands of the mouth. If a stone becomes large enough, it can block the gland, which can lead to pain and swelling. Salivary stones are rarely serious, and.
A pineal gland cyst is a usually benign (non-malignant) cyst in the pineal gland, a small endocrine gland in the brain. Historically, these fluid-filled bodies appeared on 1-4% of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) brain scans, but were more frequently diagnosed at death, seen in 4-11% of autopsies. A 2007 study by Pu et al. found a frequency of 23% in brain scans (with a mean diameter of 4.3 mm) Associated cervical lymphadenopathy is commonly seen, as well as hypertrophy of tonsillar tissues. Differential diagnosis of these findings includes Sjogren's. Figure 2.49. Axial CT demonstrating a large cystic lesion in the right parotid gland and multiple small lesions in the left parotid diagnosed as lymphoepithelial cysts

Cyst formation and necrosis is common and is seen in 40-50% and calcification is seen in 10-20% of cases. It is important to acquire contrast enhanced MR of the entire neuraxis to screen for drop metastasis and leptomeningeal spread, as CSF seeding is common in these patients [ 24 , 25 ] ( Figure 10 ) When somewhat distended by fluid it forms a small triangular (in axial section) space and is referred to as a cavum velum interpositum. If larger and exterting mass effect it is known as a cavum velum interpositum cyst . The space between the two leaves of pia contains the posterior medial choroidal arteries 2 Approximately 4% of the general population is found to have Thornwaldt cysts on autopsy. However, only 0.6% of the population demonstrates Thornwaldt cysts identifiable via imaging. The reason for the discrepancy between autopsy and imaging is still not understood. Age ranges are quite variable with most occurring between 15-60 years of age BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Previous reports have suggested that second branchial cleft cysts (BCCs) appear on sonograms as well-defined, cystic masses with thin walls and posterior enhancement. Previous CT and MR imaging findings, however, have indicated heterogeneity of these masses, and, in our experience, sonography also shows a similar variable appearance. In this communication, we report the.
Second branchial cleft cyst. On the left images of a 36-year old female with a progressive swelling on the left side of the neck. She had recently recovered from a peritonsillar abscess. ENT-examination showed a fistula orifice in the left tonsil. The position of the mass on the CT indicates that it is located in the carotid space Oropharyngeal neoplasms, specifically tonsillar and oral tongue cancers, have increased in incidence from 2.1% in 1973 to 3.9% in 2001 among patients 20-44 years old . This increase has been attributed to infection by human papillomavirus (HPV), specifically type 16, which is hypothesized to be sexually transmitted [ 40 ] Fig. 2.3 A 19-year-old man with severe head trauma and diffuse axonal injury with brain swelling from multiple intra-axial sites of hemorrhage in the cerebral white matter that have (a) mixed low and high signal on axial T2-weighted imaging and (b) low signal on axial GRE. Fig. 2.4 A 7-year-old boy with diabetic ketoacidosis and cerebral edema with effacement of ventricles and sulci on axial. The epidermal inclusion cyst is one of the most common, benign, dermatological lesions and the most common dermal epithelial cyst ().Also known as infundibular cyst or inclusion cyst, it is a simple epithelial cyst lined with infundibular or epidermis-like cells that keratinize ().The majority form as a result of progressive cystic ectasia of the infundibular (upper) portion of the hair. It sounds like there was a significant amount of hypermetabolic activity shown on the PET scan results. The scan cannot differentiate between cancer cells or other situations like infection or inflammation that may be causing this activity. It also sounds like the scar tissue was making it a challenge to get a clear idea of what is going on
The cerebellopontine angle (CPA) cistern is a subarachnoid space within the posterior cranial fossa. About 6%-10% of all intracranial masses are found in this location. Vestibular schwannomas (VSs) are the most commonly encountered lesion in the CPA, followed by meningiomas. Together these masses account for 85%-90% of all CPA tumors Background. The parapharyngeal space is a complex anatomic area with a wide array of potential pathologies. We present a case report detailing a transoral excision of a parapharyngeal space mass that was found to be a squamous lined cyst and review the anatomic considerations, differential diagnosis, and management of parapharyngeal masses 1% of population with tonsillar herniation extended more than 5 mm below the foramen magnum in those 15 years or older and more than 6 mm in younger than 15. 3-5 mm might be symptomatic) Tonsillar position descends with older age into young adulthood and then ascends with older age through adult life. Syringomyelia present in 30-70% of cases of. A phlegmon is a localized area of acute inflammation of the soft tissues. It is a descriptive term which may be used for inflammation related to a bacterial infection or non-infectious causes (e.g. pancreatitis). Most commonly, it is used in contradistinction to a walled-off pus-filled collection (), although a phlegmon may progress to an abscess if untreated Dermoid cysts occur mostly on the face (outer eyebrow, eyelid, upper nose), neck, or scalp but they may occur anywhere in the body. The cyst is usually a solitary, firm, dough-like lump and ranges in size from 0.5-6 cm in diameter. It can be associated with a nearby pit and/or sinus tract to underlying tissues
The vast majority of branchial cleft cysts arise from the second branchial cleft. They Can occur anywhere from the oropharyngeal tonsillar fossa to the supraclavicular region of the neck The bones of the face and neck were labeled using different colors to facilitate comprehension. The bone structures are rather more difficult to view on a weighted MRI T2 than on a CT-Scan: for more details on the bones of the face, please refer to the e-Anatomy module Face-CT-Scan. The teeth were numbered using the FDI World Dental. A cyst is a small sac filled with air, fluid, or other material. A tumor refers to any unusual area of extra tissue. Both cysts and tumors can appear in your skin, tissue, organs, and bones
Reinke's edema is the swelling of the vocal cords due to fluid collected within the Reinke's space. First identified by the German anatomist Friedrich B. Reinke in 1895, the Reinke's space is a gelatinous layer of the vocal cord located underneath the outer cells of the vocal cord. When a person speaks, the Reinke's space vibrates to allow for sound to be produced () Eagle syndrome (also termed stylohyoid syndrome, styloid syndrome, styloid-stylohyoid syndrome, or styloid-carotid artery syndrome) is a rare condition commonly characterized but not limited to sudden, sharp nerve-like pain in the jaw bone and joint, back of the throat, and base of the tongue, triggered by swallowing, moving the jaw, or turning the neck However, these cysts may present anywhere along the course of a second branchial fistula, which proceeds from the skin of the lateral neck, between the internal and external carotid arteries, and into the palatine tonsil (see the image below). Therefore, a second branchial cleft cyst is part of the differential diagnosis of a parapharyngeal mass Patankar et al describes 4 patterns in cases of Cerebral Malaria. 1. Normal Imaging 2. Diffuse brain edema 3. Diffuse brain edema with bilateral thalamic hypoattenuation and 4. Diffuse cerebral edema with thalamic and cerebellar hypoattenuation.

Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is an abnormal clonal proliferation of Langerhans cells, abnormal cells deriving from bone marrow and capable of migrating from skin to lymph nodes.. Symptoms range from isolated bone lesions to multisystem disease. LCH is part of a group of syndromes called histiocytoses, which are characterized by an abnormal proliferation of histiocytes (an archaic term. Multiple system atrophy (MSA) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by a combination of symptoms that affect both the autonomic nervous system (the part of the nervous system that controls involuntary action such as blood pressure or digestion) and movement. The symptoms reflect the progressive loss of function and death of. There are a few terms to define here, and I'll go through them one by one: T2. This has to do with the type of scan. MRI's are pretty complicated technologically, but the basic idea is that body tissues are full of water, and water molecules respond to magnets
There are, in general, 2 separate components to the clinical syndrome associated with the Chiari I malformation (Figure 1).Tonsil ectopia can exert external pressure of the cerebellar tonsils on the dura, brainstem, and spinal cord resulting in occipital pain, which may be exacerbated by coughing, sneezing, laughing, or straining Brain Calcification. Intracranial calcifications indicate lytic CMV infection of the ependymal cells lining the lateral ventricles and the astrocytes and oligodendroglial cells in the nearby cerebral or cerebellar white matter.

Undifferentiated is the most common subtype, accounting for > 60% of nasopharyngeal carcinoma. It is also the most frequent pediatric subtype. Other subtypes in a descending order of frequency are keratinizing, nonkeratinizing differentiated and basaloid. Peak incidence in fourth to sixth decades; less than 20% occur in pediatric age group The tonsils are lymph nodes located at the back of the throat. Tonsil stones (also called tonsilloliths or tonsil calculi) are small clusters of calcifications or stones that form in the craters (crypts) of the tonsils. Tonsil stones are hard, and appear as white or yellowish formations on the tonsils.They usually smell bad (and make your breath smell bad) due to bacteria In the most common surgery for Chiari malformation, called posterior fossa decompression, your surgeon removes a small section of bone in the back of your skull, relieving pressure by giving your brain more room. In many cases, the covering of your brain, called the dura mater, may be opened. Also, a patch may be sewn in place to enlarge the.
A Hypodense Liver Lesion or Hypodensity Liver is a deformity in the liver tissue that appears less dense than the surrounding tissue in radiological scans such as Computed Tomography (CT) scans or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). The appearance of these lesions in the radiological tests does not improve with the injection of intravenous contrast, and their presence may indicate a number of. Histopathologic findings include (1) cavitation of spinal cord gray matter, (2) syrinx continuous with or adjacent to the central canal, and (3) an inner layer of gliotic tissue. In association with the syrinx, other pathological conditions such as tumors, vascular anomalies, or infective processes also may be evident. Previous The cyst formation in these lymph nodes is thought to be due to spontaneous degradation of keratin and cellular debris inside the lymph node or formation of a true epithelium-lined cyst in the center of the lymph node. It is not thought to be due to central necrosis as can be seen in cystic nodal metastases elsewhere
