The smears in chordoma are usually hypercelluar: The main cellular forms in chordoma are physaiiferous cells with mucinous, myxoid background. Chordoma is an uncommon neoplasm arising from notochordal remnants. Here, the cytologic features of chordoma and the diagnostic utility of FNAB are presented.
