Chordoma is a rare malignant tumor originating from remnants of the notochord, slow-growing, but locally destructive, of presentation in the clivus, spinal cord region and sacrum. It is diagnosis can be a challenge for the various differential to consider that can be found with more often, especially when manifested as bulky lesions in the nasopharyngeal area and/or with symptoms secondary to it. As if that were not enough small biopsies often are insufficient for correct diagnosis.
