Desmosomes, gap junctions and tight junctions are intercellular specializations which have been described in human meningiomas. We report, in five of five meningiomas, including a pulmonary metastasis from a malignant intracranial meningioma, a fourth type of intercellular specialization which is similar to but not identical with the hemidesmosome of the… CONTINUE READING
