Synchronous Infrasellar and Cervical Chondroid Chordoma: A Case Report and Review of the Literature

Ilson Sepulveda, Thomas Schmidt, Geraldine Ayres, Paulo Vera, Felipe Fredes


We report on a patient who presented in ENT clinic with diplopia accompanied by headache and vomiting. Imaging studies revealed a large expansive heterogeneous mass encroaching on the infrasellar region and cervical spine. Post-intravenous contrast administration revealed a lesion with high enhancement and involvement of the sphenoidal sinus with retroclival extension. Biopsy confirmed the presence of a chondroid chordoma. Treatment included radiation therapy and the patient is currently receiving palliative and supportive care.
