Chordomas are rare, slow-growing malignant yet locally aggressive osteolytic primary bone tumours derived from persistent notochordal remnants that principally arise in the axial skeleton.1,2 Cases of extra-axial chordomas have also been reported.3 They make up about 1% of all intracranial, 4% of primary bone and 2% of spinal tumours4,5 They are the most common primary bone tumours of spine and have a male to female ratio of 2:1.
