J Comput Assist Tomogr. Nov-Dec 1990;14(6):991-3. doi: 10.1097/00004728-199011000-00024.

Abstract

A case of Ramsay Hunt syndrome (herpes zoster oticus) was studied with Gd diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid enhanced magnetic resonance imaging using a surface coil rather than a conventional head coil. This allowed us to demonstrate in detail the inflammatory changes of the multiple structures, involved.
