Sepúlveda I, Frelinghuysen M, Platin E, Spencer ML, Compan A, Munzenmayer J, Ulloa D - Case Rep Oncol (2014)

Bottom Line: The lesion was poorly enhanced following intravenous contrast injection.The patient was treated with hemimandibular surgical resection, fibula free flap reconstruction and adjuvant radiotherapy.Currently, the patient is disease free and free of posttreatment complications.

ABSTRACT
We report the case of a patient whose main complaint was swelling on the right side of the mandible when he presented to the Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) Service. Imaging studies revealed a large homogeneous, multilocular, expansive lesion in the body of the right mandibular ramus. The lesion was poorly enhanced following intravenous contrast injection. The patient was treated with hemimandibular surgical resection, fibula free flap reconstruction and adjuvant radiotherapy. Currently, the patient is disease free and free of posttreatment complications.

Figure 3: Sagittal CT shows erosion of the cortical bone in the right mandibular ramus.

Mentions: A computed tomography (CT) exam was performed revealing a large, homogeneous, expansive, multilobular process with cystic appearance in the body of the right mandibular ramus (fig. 1, fig. 2, fig. 3, fig. 4). Also, intravenous contrast medium administration resulted in poor enhancement of the lesion, showing expansion and bone erosion and displacement of adjacent masticatory muscles (fig. 5). Due to the size mass, a slight displacement of the ipsilateral parapharyngeal space and airway was noted. There was no evidence of morphological or density changes of the submaxillary glands. In addition, nonspecific lymphadenopathy was detected at ganglionic levels IB, IIA, IIB and V.
