Chordoma usually occurs in sacrum or base of skull. Three most common bone tumors in patients Ͼ40: metastases, metastases, metastases! Most metastases occur proximal to knees and elbows: those distal to knees and elbows are usually due to lung or renal metastases or melanoma. Common anterior spine lesions: metastases, hemangiomas of bone, Langerhans cell histiocytosis, osteomyelitis, giant cell tumor Common posterior spine lesions: aneurysmal bone cyst, osteoid osteoma, osteoblastoma Bone lesions that skip across joints to involve adjacent bones are frequently vascular: angiosarcoma and Gorham’s disease (disappearing bone disease).
