1. Lytic multilocular bone defect in right petrous temporal bone: MEDICAL REFERRAL INDICATED
A localized zone of bone destruction with a non-expansile pattern is present in the right petrous temporal bone. Diagnosis of this lesion is beyond the scope of oral radiology. Referral to the patient's physician for medical imaging and diagnosis is indicated.
Axial views of skull base
These axial cross-sectional images demonstrate the localized zone of bone loss at the base of the right petrous temporal bone. The left temporal bone appears normal.
Coronal views of the right temporal bone
These coronal cross-sectional images demonstrate the sclerotic appearance of the trabecular bone in the region surrounding the lytic bone loss in the right temporal bone.
2. Monckeberg's arteriosclerosis
Calcifications are visible in the tunica media of the parasellar segments of the internal carotid arteries. This is an incidental finding with no proven clinical significance and is suggestive of the presence of Monckeberg's arteriosclerosis.
3. Elongated styloid processes
The styloid processes are elongated bilaterally. This is an incidental finding with no significance.
4. Lingual mandibular tori
Small lingual tori composed of cortical bone are present in the mandibular alveolar process adjacent to the premolars. This is a non-significant incidental finding.
5. Mild cervical degenerative joint disease
Small osteophytes and mild subchondral sclerosis are present in the articular regions of the Atlas and dens of the cervical vertebrae. This is a common incidental finding with no clinical significance that is suggestive of mild cervical degenerative joint disease.
