    Chordomas are rare, slow-growing tumors arising from cellular remnants of the notochord. They account for 1-4 % of primary malignant bone tumors and usually occur in the axial skeleton, most commonly the sacrum. Although typically locally recurrent, chordoma metastasis rates as high as 10-42 %...
