This low power photomicrograph shows nests of epithelioid chondroblastic looking cells with a physaliferous pattern similar to what is seen in the chordoma and thus the name chordoid sarcoma has been applied to this tumor. Following surgery, this patient underwent local radiation therapy and thus far has not experienced local recurrence or metastases.
