Extraosseous processes that histologically resemble a chordoma include ecchordosis cofdoma 14, 17, 22, 25 and intradural chordoma. These entities show different biological behavior, with gradient evolution of growth and malignancy from the usually asymptomatic ecchordosis, to the slowly evolving intradural chordoma, to the highly malignant and invasive chordoma MRI of intracranial chordomas.

In contrast, radiosurgery has the advantage of high dose single-session irradiation and efficacy for small sized tumor mass 7 Published online Aug The radiological appearance of our tumor was not diagnosed either on plain radiography, CT, or MR imaging. The proximity of chordomas to vital neurological structures such as the brain stem and nerves limits the dose cel radiation that can safely be delivered.

MRI of extensive clival chordoma in year-old male patient, axial view. The histological features and antigen expression were consistent with the diagnosis of chordoma. Postoperative dfl CT demonstrates no definite contrast enhancing mass in right cerebellopontine angle region and no bony destruction. Like their counterparts at other sites, such tumors are considered to arise from notochordal rests.

Our experience suggests that at least some cranial chordomas enhance unpublished data.
