Chordoid glioma is a rare low-grade tumor that arises from the anterior wall or roof of the third ventricle superior to the optic chiasm. Histologically it is suspected to originate from the specialized ependymal cells of the lamina terminalis. This tumor arises from areas adjacent to the hypothalamus and suprasellar region with the usual presentation of an ovoid shape on imaging and histology similar to a chordoma. While descriptions of these tumors in the surgical literature exist, all surgical series report on outcomes following craniotomy and direct transcranial approaches. We now report a case of an individual who underwent endoscopic transsphenoidal and transplanum resection, focusing on surgical details that are unique to this approach.
