Figure 4 (A-D): Mass lesion (star) in the right lateral aspect of the anterior 2/3rd of the tongue with inferior extension into the posterior aspect of right sublingual space. The lesion appears isointense on T1 (A), hyperintense on T2 (B), and hyperintense on STIR (C and D) and extends medially up to the lingual septum with no obvious extension across the midline. Axial STIR image (C) demonstrates an ill-defined nodular mass lesion involving intrinsic muscles of the anterior tongue including genioglossus, myelohyoid, and geniohyoid. Inferiorly, the lesion invades the right lateral floor of mouth and sublingual space (short arrow). Posteriorly, there is an invasion of right pterygomandibular raphe (long arrow)
