A chordoma which occurs as a primary tumour outside the axial skeleton is known as an extra-axial chordoma, parachordoma or chordoma periphericum. It is extremely rare and therefore survival, recurrence and the rates of metastasis are not known. Whilst few recurrences have been described, the extra-axial chordoma has the potential for late recurrence at up to 12 years. Metastases are even less frequent. We report the case of a 56-year-old woman who developed an extra-axial chordoma of the right thoracic wall in close relationship with the tenth rib. The tumour was completely removed and the prognosis is excellent.
