Figure 2: In the MRI examination taken with the preliminary diagnosis of a mass in the left parotid gland of a 36-year-old female patient; in the left parotid gland, well-defined, hypointense (short arrow) on T1-weighted images (a and d), heterogeneous hyperintense (long arrow) on fat-suppressed T2-weighted images (b and e), postcontrast fat-suppressed T1-weighted images (c and f), a lesion with minimal heterogeneous enhancement and nonenhancing internal cystic/necrotic areas (arrowhead) is observed and histopathologically reported as pleomorphic adenoma. MRI: Magnetic resonance imaging
