Multiple enlarged lymph nodes that maintain their central echogenic stromal fats are noted at the sub-mental region (levels IA & 1B), at the submandibular chains (levels IIA & IIB) and in the intra-parotid gland parenchyma, which are likely reactive. Two conspicuous rounded lesions (located at the left lateral neck; < 2cm in diameters each) with homogeneously echoic reflectivity but with mild eccentric foci shadowing are noted suggesting mature teratomatous nodules containing sebum and subtle hair plug compositions.
