Figure 8 (A-F): Irregular shaped mass lesion (star) in the left side of the tongue appearing isointense on T1 (A), heterogeneously hyperintense on T2 (B), and hyperintense on STIR (C and D) showing contrast enhancement on T1 + c images (E and F). The lesion extends across the midline into the right side. Inferiorly the lesion extends into the left sublingual space causing loss of fat plane with the mylohyoid muscle and to the anterior aspect of the right sublingual space. Axial STIR image (C) demonstrates an ill-defined nodular hyperintense mass lesion of tongue invading genioglossus, myelohyoid, and geniohyoid in the left lateral and anterolateral aspects of the tongue extending up to lingual septum (short arrow) and crossing the midline (white line). Posteriorly, the lesion invades the base of tongue and vallecula on left side and abuts the anterior tonsillar pillar (long arrow)
