Parapharyngeal space schwanomma :MRI
The parapharyngeal space is often described to be a deep potential neck space shaped as an inverted pyramid. The base of the pyramid is at the skull base, and the apex is at the greater cornu of the hyoid bone. Clinically, the parapharyngeal space should be considered in two compartments: pre-styloid compartment and poststyloid compartment. This patient showed well-defined, iso- to hyper-intense mass with heterogenous areas of enhancement in the left parapharyngeal space in the poststyloid compartment, displacing the major vessels and compressing the oropharyngeal airway.Of all the parapharyngeal space tumor...

Sinus Tarsi Syndrome : MRI
Sinus Tarsi Syndrome usually presents with lateral foot pain and tenderness.  Pathologically there is scarring and degenerative changes of soft-tissue structures in the sinus tarsi. Patients may have history of inversion injury with lateral ligament complex tears, and it is frequently associated with posterior tibial tendon injury. On MRI, in the acute setting there is increased signal in fat on T2 weighted images due to edema. The T1-hyperintense fat in the sinus tarsi space is replaced by either fluid or scar tissue, and the ligaments may be disrupted.Treatment is usually conservativeFa...
