Abstract

Background: Meningiomas are one of the most common tumours to affect the central nervous system. Genetic mutations are important in meningeal tumourigenesis, progression and prognosis. In this study, we aimed to examine the effect of 1p/19q deletion on the diagnosis and prognosis of meningioma subtypes using the fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) method.
