Abstract

AIM: To determine the Wnt and SHH subtypes at the molecular level, and to compare them clinically by examining the changes in CTNNB1, AXIN, PTCH1, SMO, SUFU, and GLI1 mRNA expression in the medulloblastoma of a Turkish population determined according to patient selection criteria. In this context, the clinical distinction between Wnt and SHH groups are realized by considering the age, gender, survival time, location of the lesion, and radiological features of the patients.
