Abstract

The characteristic imaging appearance for a variety of common and/or important pediatric head and neck tumors will be described in this review. These include benign masses such as hemangioma, teratoma, nerve sheath tumors, juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma and malignant masses such as rhabdomyosarcoma, lymphoma, carcinoma and retinoblastoma. This review focuses primarily on soft tissue tumors.
