Chondrosarcomas ­are extreme­ly ­rare intra­cra­ni­al car­ti­lag­i­nous ­tumors of ­which ­the myx­oid var­i­ant is ­the ­least report­ed in ­the lit­er­a­ture. They devel­op extrad­u­ral­ly ­and gen­er­al­ly infil­trate ­the ­dura ­only in ­advanced stag­es or at recur­rence. We ­describe ­the ­case of a 55-­year-­old wom­an ­with a pos­te­ri­or cra­ni­al fos­sa myx­oid chon­dro­sar­co­ma ­which ­had a pri­mar­i­ly intra­du­ral exten­sion.
