Abstract

Intracranial chondrosarcomas located in the region of the posterior clinoid process have not been focused on. Here, we report the case of a 29-year-old woman with a skull base tumor in that region. Seven years after the diagnosis, the tumor had grown and showed calcification and tumor stain; chondrosarcoma, posterior clinoid meningioma, and chordoma were suspected. The patient underwent subtotal tumor resection, and the histopathological study revealed that the tumor was a low-grade chondrosarcoma. Chondrosarcomas can be located in the region of the posterior clinoid process, and not only chordomas but also posterior clinoid meningiomas should be considered as a differential diagnosis of tumors located in that region, especially when the tumor has calcification or receives a vascular supply.
