Spinal anesthesia is a regional anesthetic technique applied by the anesthesiologist, more than a hundred years. The growing popularity of ambulatory surgical procedures have led to more frequent use of spinal anesthesia. This is an anesthetic technique which enhances the satisfaction of the patient and surgeon with this aspect. Chordoma is a rare, slow growing primary malignant tumor of the axial skeleton. It is seen at sacrum and skull base in the spine especiallay sacrococcygeal area (%50). In this paper, we presented a rare case of sacral chordoma up our spinal anesthesia. Perioperative potential risks can be minimized by close monitoring and good preoperative evaluation. Thus; anesthesic technique which even thought as an unappropriate method can be prefered and we believe that diagnosis can remain in the secondary plan in this decision.
