Chondrosarcomas are extremely rare intracranial cartilaginous tumors of which the myxoid variant is the least reported in the literature. They develop extradurally and generally infiltrate the dura only in advanced stages or at recurrence. We describe the case of a 55-year-old woman with a posterior cranial fossa myxoid chondrosarcoma which had a primarily intradural extension.

Abstract

Chondrosarcomas are extremely rare intracranial cartilaginous tumors of which the myxoid variant is the least reported in the literature. They develop extradurally and generally infiltrate the dura only in advanced stages or at recurrence. We describe the case of a 55-year-old woman with a posterior cranial fossa myxoid chondrosarcoma which had a primarily intradural extension.
