spheno-occipital region of the skull base and sacral region. In adults 33.3% of

chordomas involve the sacrococcygeal region, 53% occured at the base of the

skull near the spheno-occipital area, and near 14% were found in the vertebral

column. The cranial nerves mostly affected were abducens, oculomotor and

trochlear, with some overlaps. All patients were treated with surgery and some

cases referred for gamma-knife radiosurgery (GKS).
