    Axial T1W SE before and after contrast
     

    Pre-contrast, see 1c for description

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Axial T1W SE before and after contrast;

    Pre-contrast, see 1d for description

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Axial T1W SE before and after contrast;

    Note the huge enhancing mass involving the central skull base, the masticator space, the prevertebral space, the pterygo-palatine fossa

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Axial T1W SE before and after contrast;

    Note the involvement of the Meckel's cave on the left side

  • Figure 2
    Post-contrast (Gd IV) coronal sections, T1W SE
     

    Note the filling of the nasal fossa and the retention changes in the left maxillary sinus

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Post-contrast (Gd IV) coronal sections, T1W SE;

    Note the disruption of the posterior inner wall of the left maxillary antrum, as the deep posterior extension

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Post-contrast (Gd IV) coronal sections, T1W SE;

    There was a disruption of the skull base around the left foramen ovale, involvement of the cavernous sinus and encasement of the left internal carotid artery
