Figure 2: Left half of the image is a sagittal MPR image revealing triple ectopia in a single image. All ectopic nodules are separated by a few mms. The lingual nodule is just behind a small depression or sulcus and is partly buried in the tongue. Right half of the image is a frontal isotope scan shows two hot spots or areas of uptake. The upper one is between submandibular glands and in the midline typically corresponding to lingual ectopia. The lower and larger uptake is due to combined pre-hyoid gland and enlarged pyramidal lobe
