OBJECTIVE: Tenascin is an extracellular matrix glycoprotein that is expressed-during embryogenesis, inflammation, angiogenesis, and carcinogenesis. The aim of this study was to investigate how tenascin expression relates to histological grade, angiogenesis, and radiological finding's in meningiomas.
