Chordomas are rare malignant tumours, which typically occur in the axial skeleton and skull base. They arise from embryonic remnants of the notochord. They constitute less than 5 % of primary bone tumours. They are characterised by their locally aggressive potential with high frequency of recurrences and a median overall survival of 6 years. The initial therapeutic strategy must be discussed in an expert centre and may involve surgery, preoperative radiotherapy, exclusive radiotherapy or therapeutic abstention. Despite this, more than 50 % of patients will be facing recurrences with few therapeutic options available at this advanced stage. This review aims to outline current treatment options available in chordomas, as well as discussing potentiality of new therapeutic approaches through their molecular characterization and the comprehension of their immunological environment.
