Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Chordoid meningioma is a rare variant of meningioma with histologic features that mimic chordoma and other chordoid neoplasms. This tumor is important to recognize, as there is a well-documented propensity for local recurrence and aggressive behavior. Most cases occur around the cerebral convexities, in locations that are similar to classical forms of meningioma. Intraventricular forms of chordoid meningioma are rare, with most reported cases arising in the lateral ventricles. We present a case of a chordoid meningioma that presented in the third ventricle of a 63-year-old female. This represents only the second documented case of a third ventricular chordoid meningioma and the first case in an adult. The distinction from other chordoid neoplasms can be challenging, particularly chordoid gliomas, which classically occur in this location. Herein, we compare and contrast chordoid meningioma with chordoid glioma and provide a review of the relevant literature.
