The chordoma is a slowly growing spinal cord tumor that rarely metastasizes. This is the first report in the literatue of a chordoma with metastasis to the mandible. The mandibular involvement occurred 4 years after the primary sacral chordoma was controlled by excision and radiation. The jaw lesion did not respond to radiation but has been controlled by resection.
