Butterfly glioma - name given to a high grade astrocytoma, usually glioblastoma multiforme, which crosses the corpus callosum. The tumor projections extending out from the midline simulate butterfly wings. Rarely cerebral metastases, tumefactive demyelination, lymphoma or toxoplasmosis may mimic this appearance.

Osteosarcoma of the jaw (gnathic osteosarcoma). Note the large mass surrounding the left mandible with ‘sunburst’ type ossification. More images at http://ift.tt/1hQqA82
Note the large mass?
Thanks for that. I nearly missed it!
"the large mass" was just the subject of the sentence and not the whole sentence. What we wanted you to "note" was that it is surrounding the bone (ie. it is of the bone and not eccentric to it). Secondly we wanted you to "note" the sunburst type osteoid radiating within the mass, characteristic of osteosarcoma. Thirdly we wanted to subliminally trigger you to "note" the post (ie. reblog it or like it) because we’re tricky like that.
