Abstract

Introduction. Pituitary adenomas (PA) are the third most common intracranial tumors, with an incidence rate of 10-15%. More than half are invasive, infiltrating adjacent structures. The primary objective of this project was to determine whether MGMT expression is associated with the invasiveness of PA.
