Chordoma of the mobile segments of the spine are infrequent lesions and especially rare are those located in the lower part of the cervical spine. We present the case of a cervical chordoma located in the C6 vertebral body diagnosed by means of magnetic resonance imaging and operated on by an anterior approach. The authors discuss the clinical and neuroradiological features of this disease also analysing some controversial therapeutic aspects.
