Figure 13 (A-D): Vagus nerve schwannoma. Axial (A) and coronal (B) T2-weighted images show well-defined extra-axial mixed solid and cystic mass in the right cerebello-medullary, cerebellopontine angle cisterns extending to the right jugular foramen. The jugular foramen is widened with loss of normal signal void of the right jugular bulb. The lesion is extending inferiorly to suprahyoid carotid space. Sagittal post-contrast T1-weighted image (C) shows inhomogeneous enhancement. Axial STIR image (D) shows increased signal intensity in right true vocal cord, due to denervation injury. Total excision of the lesion was done and histopathology confirmed schwannoma
