Abstract

Intracranial chordoma is a rare tumor, originating from embryonic remnants of the primitive notochord. It typically appears as an enhancing extradural midline tumor with bone involvement. We introduce a rare case of a 27-year-old male who had a nonenhancing intradural chordoma showing paramedian location, involving the left cavernous sinus, Meckel's cave, and prepontine cistern. The pathologic diagnosis was confirmed as an intradural chordoma. The imaging findings of this unusual case of a nonenhancing intradural paramedian chordoma will be presented with the differential diagnosis focused on the epidermoid cyst.
