    Non-contrast MR images
     

    T2-weighted MR imaging in axial view shows hyperintense lesion (red arrow) at lateral canthus of left eye in preseptal location.

     
    Area of Interest: Eyes; Head and neck; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Cysts;

    T2-weighted MR imaging in axial view shows hyper-intense lesion at lateral canthus of left eye in preseptal location with internal low-signal areas (blue arrows).

     
    Area of Interest: Eyes; Head and neck; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Cysts;

    T2-weighted MR imaging in coronal view shows hyperintense lesion (red arrow) at lateral canthus of left eye in preseptal location.

     
    Area of Interest: Eyes; Head and neck; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Cysts;

    T1-weighted MR imaging in axial view shows hypo to isointense lesion (red arrow) at lateral canthus of left eye in preseptal location.

     
    Area of Interest: Eyes; Head and neck; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Cysts;

    Diffusion-weighted MR imaging shows restriction (red arrow) at lateral canthus of left eye.

     
    Area of Interest: Eyes; Head and neck; Imaging Technique: MR-Diffusion/Perfusion; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Cysts;

    Low ADC values are noted involving lateral canthus of left eye.

     
    Area of Interest: Eyes; Head and neck; Imaging Technique: MR-Diffusion/Perfusion; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Cysts;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Contrast-enhanced MR images.
     

    Pre-contrast T1 fat-suppressed MR imaging in axial view shows isointense lesion at lateral canthus of left eye.

     
    Area of Interest: Eyes; Head and neck; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Cysts;

    Post-contrast T1 fat-suppressed MR imaging in axial view shows no evidence of contrast enhancement in the lesion at lateral canthus of left eye.

     
    Area of Interest: Eyes; Head and neck; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Contrast agent-intravenous; Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Cysts;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Ultra-onographic images
     

    A well-defined hypoechoic cystic lesion (red arrow) is noted involving lateral canthus of left eye with internal inhomogeneity due to presence of keratin debris.

     
    Area of Interest: Eyes; Head and neck; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Cysts;

    The lesion shows no evidence of internal vascularity.

     
    Area of Interest: Eyes; Head and neck; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound-Colour Doppler; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Cysts;
