Was considered in view of clival location; however, the characteristic large physaliferous cells were not evident and we ruled out the same.
The left neck mass was composed of nests of large physaliferous cells with vacuolated cytoplasm surrounded by abundant myxoid material, consistent with chordoma (Figure 2).
6) The diagnosis of chordoma can be confirmed by the presence of physaliferous cells in a lobular arrangement.
Chordoma can also enter the differential diagnosis because of the growth in cords and the presence of myxoid stroma, but it should show a destructive lobulated pattern and multivacuolated physaliferous cells.
The possibility of Parachordoma is ruled out due to the absence of physaliferous bodies.
