Plain films had not been obtained prior to the MRI examination. T1-weighted MRI (Fig. 1a) and T2* GRE (Fig. 1b) showed a bright lesion with sclerotic wall thickening and bony septa. On STIR (Fig. 2a) and fat-suppressed, PD-weighted images (Fig. 2b), most of the interior signal of the lesion was suppressed, except for some irregular hyperintense inclusions. The lesion showed no signs of aggressive behaviour. Intravenous contrast medium was not administered.
