Abstract: The lumbar spine is a less common location for chordoma Here we describe a 44-year-old woman presenting with pain due to a L4 vertebral expansile lesion that caused significant canal stenosis and neural foraminal compromise Vertebroplasty was performed and resulted in immediate pain relief For patients with painful lumbar chordoma who are unwilling to undergo surgery, vertebroplasty can play a palliative role as in patients with other vertebral lesions Treating pain and stabilizing vertebra by way of vertebroplasty in a case of chordoma has not yet been reported
