There is a heterogeneous mass lesion containing multiple T1-hyperintense fatty components at the superficial fibers of the deltoid muscle induced by intramuscular injection of oil-based anabolic steroids.
These heterogeneous ill-defined deltoid masses may mimic liposarcoma or any other soft tissue sarcoma if the clinical history of the patient is not taken into account.
