SACROCOCCYGEAL CHORDOMA

SACROCOCCYGEAL CHORDOMA Abstract CHORDOMA is a tumor arising from the remnants of the primitive notochord, slowly progressive, resistant to treatment, with a tendency to invade and destroy bone by direct extension, occasionally metastasizing to distant lymph nodes or viscera.

Abstract

Abstract CHORDOMA is a tumor arising from the remnants of the primitive notochord, slowly progressive, resistant to treatment, with a tendency to invade and destroy bone by direct extension, occasionally metastasizing to distant lymph nodes or viscera. In 1948 Gentil and Coley1 reported seven cases of sacrococcygeal chordoma treated in the Memorial Hospital from 1930 to 1943 and reviewed 128 cases previously reported in the literature. The following is the report of a case with a review of eight additional cases collected from the literature from 1943 to 1948. REPORT OF CASE Mrs. M. Z., aged 70, had been observed in the clinic since 1947 for various unrelated conditions. Her last examination was in July, 1950. A month later she was referred for surgical consultation because of low-back pain of about four weeks' duration.
