Patient Data

Age: 55 years

Selected MRI images demonstrate a large left sphenoid wing extra-axial mass that has very high T2 signal and vivid contrast enhancement. The adjacent brain is displaced with minimal edema. 

The off-midline location and very high T2 signal suggest the diagnosis of chondrosarcoma.
