IMAGING FEATURES OF MYOEPITHELIOMA ARISING FROM THE HARD PALATE: A case report
Source: Acta Radiologica, 1 September 2000, vol. 41, no. 5, pp. 417-419(3)
A 53-year-old Japanese woman presented with a mass of the hard palate that was histologically diagnosed as myoepithelioma. By CT, the well-demarcated ovoid isodense mass showed faint contrast enhancement. By MR imaging, the mass was homogeneous and isointense on T1-weighted images with homogeneous enhancement after administration of contrast material and markedly hyperintense on T2-weighted images. Myoepithelioma should be kept in mind as differential diagnosis of hard palatine tumors.
