Figure 1: Post contrast axial images showing three hyperdense, (a) enhancing nodules over the surface of posterior tongue measuring 9 × 12 mms in size. (b) second ectopic nodule at a lower level just anterosuperior to the body of hyoid bone measuring 11 × 9 mms in size (c) the third nodule below the hyoid bone and anterior to thyroid cartilage as an enlarged pyramidal lobe measuring 19 × 24 mms in size. (d) an axial image showing absent lateral lobes of thyroid with the result that carotid and jugular vessels are closely applied to trachea
