Chordoma OMIM

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/dispomim.cgi?id=215400

Chordomas are rare, clinically malignant tumors derived from notochordal remnants. They occur along the length of the spinal axis, predominantly in the sphenooccipital, vertebral, and sacrococcygeal regions. They are characterized by slow growth, local destruction of bone, extension into adjacent soft tissues, and, rarely, distant metastatic spread.
