Figure 8 (A-D): Schwannoma from the mandibular division of the trigeminal nerve. Axial (A) and coronal (B) T2-weighted images show well-defined dumb-bell shaped heterointense mass in right pterygoid space and infratemporal fossa extending along the postganglionic segment of the mandibular division of right trigeminal nerve. Axial (C) and coronal (D) post-contrast T1-weighted images show heterogeneous enhancement. The lesion widens and fills the foramen ovale (arrow in b). Total excision of the lesion was done and histopathology confirmed schwannoma
