Chordomas are rare primary bone malignancies derived from notochord remnants. The tumors often are slow-growing and often present with indolent, nonspecific symptoms. Nevertheless, chordomas are locally aggressive and highly prone to local recurrence, necessitating precise planning before biopsy and/or surgical resection. Familiarity with the imaging features of chordomas is, therefore, essential. This case highlights the typical imaging and pathologic features of a spinal chordoma as well as the surgical approach and the patient's subsequent outcome.
