Abstract

Chordomas have typical clinical, radiographic, and histologic presentations that must be understood by all orthopedists treating spinal or neoplastic disease. Improvements in imaging have enhanced early, accurate diagnosis and anatomic localization of tumors. Multimodality therapy with aggressive surgery and spinal cord-sparing radiation therapy can achieve good tumor control.
