Clival chordomas in children

Clival chordomas in children

Acta Neurologica 2(2): 121-127

Two cases of clival chordomas in children are presented. The rare occurrence of these lesions before puberty is outlined. The clinical and radiological features are discussed with reference to surgical implications. Despite the age, the tumoral size was so large that subtotal or radical excision was not feasible in either patient. Early detection of these neoplasms in the clival region is needed to allow the successful use of recently developed procedures by anterior approach.
