Figure 1: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) brain 1. Horizontal section of brain of patient with a history of carcinoma of the breast. Following a subsequent MRI showed osteolytic lesion (50 mm) of the clivus with an extraosseous portion (25 mm) in the anterior epidural space. Initially, it was suspected to be a metastasis. The immunohistochemical study of the lesion showed it was positive for epithelial membrane antigen, cytokeratin and S-100 protein. The diagnosis of chordoma was established
