Chordomas are rare tumours that arise from embryonic notochordal remnants along the length of the neuraxis at developmentally active sites. These sites are the ends of the neuraxis and the vertebral bodies. Chordomas comprise less than 1% of CNS tumours, and also rarely occur in extra axial locations. Chordomas are thought to arise from ectopic notochord remnants.
