We present a case of chordoma of cervical spine with spinal cord compression at the level C4-C5-C6 in a woman of 65 years old. The diagnosis depends on the results of the histological studies and especially the studies of the labeled elements as protein S 100. For the operation was used an anterior approach and a somatectomy of the interested vertebrae. The cervical spine was synthesized using a bone autograft and the stabilization was made possible through a HaloVest. The patient then underwent radiotherapy (50 Gy); the preoperative deficit disappeared totally and at the present moment there are no signs of clinical on radiological relapse.

Abstract

We present a case of chordoma of cervical spine with spinal cord compression at the level C4-C5-C6 in a woman of 65 years old. The diagnosis depends on the results of the histological studies and especially the studies of the labeled elements as protein S 100. For the operation was used an anterior approach and a somatectomy of the interested vertebrae. The cervical spine was synthesized using a bone autograft and the stabilization was made possible through a HaloVest. The patient then underwent radiotherapy (50 Gy); the preoperative deficit disappeared totally and at the present moment there are no signs of clinical on radiological relapse.
