Figure 1: (a) Magnetic resonance imaging axial postcontrast fat saturated T1-weighted images showing an enhancing mass lesion in the left maxillary region extending into the masticator space. Perineural spread of the lesion is seen extending along the maxillary nerve and infraorbital nerve. Enlargement and enhancement of mandibular nerve is also seen with enlarged foramen ovale. (b) Axial computed tomography scan showing bone destruction of left maxilla and pterygoid plates. (c) Biopsy of the growth shows tumor cells, which are arranged in cribriform pattern with few small tubular acini, trabeculae and small nests. The stroma is showing focal areas of myxoid and hyaline changes. Perineural invasion is seen
