We present a case of falcine chondrosarcoma in a 58-year-old man. Only a few other examples of chondrosarcomas in this location and a total of approximately 50 intracranial cases have been reported. Because its rarity prevents any group of neurosurgeons from collecting a large experience in managing this tumor, we reviewed descriptions of previous cases to determine the natural history of intracranial chondrosarcomas. The distinguishing features of this rare tumor are compared with previous examples of intracranial tumors derived from cartilage and more common tumors in the parasagittal region, such as meningioma.
