Metastasis to the Thyroid Gland: A Critical Review (Open Access).

Annals of Surgical Oncology. Abstract. Background: Metastasis to the thyroid gland from nonthyroid sites is an uncommon clinical presentation in surgical practice. The aim of this review was to assess its incidence management and outcomes. Methods: A literature review was performed to identify reports of metastases to the thyroid gland. Both clinical and autopsy series…

Values of molecular markers in the differential diagnosis of thyroid abnormalities

Journal of Cancer Research and Clinical Oncology Abstract. Introduction: Thyroid cancer (TC), follicular adenoma (FA) and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (HT) are three of the most frequently reported abnormalities that affect the thyroid gland. A frequent co-occurrence along with similar histopathological features is observed between TC and FA as well as between TC and HT. The conventional…

Nomenclature Revision for Encapsulated Follicular Variant of Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma.

  Abstract. Importance  Although growing evidence points to highly indolent behavior of encapsulated follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma (EFVPTC), most patients with EFVPTC are treated as having conventional thyroid cancer. Objective  To evaluate clinical outcomes, refine diagnostic criteria, and develop a nomenclature that appropriately reflects the biological and clinical characteristics of EFVPTC. Design, Setting,…

Cytological Diagnosis of Follicular Variant of Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma before and after the Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology.

Abstract. Background: The follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma (FVPTC) is the second most common subtype of papillary carcinoma after the classical variant. The Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology (TBSRTC) has been introduced to standardize the practice of thyroid fine needle aspiration (FNA) reporting. We evaluated the impact of TBSRTC on the FNA interpretation…

New Concept of the Encapsulated Follicular Variant of Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma and Its Impact on the Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology: A Single-Institute Experience.

Abstract. Background: The encapsulated follicular variant (EFV) of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is the most discussed entity in thyroid pathology. Recently, the question of whether or not EFV-PTC is a malignant entity has been the subject of renewed discussion in the light of recent molecular and clinical studies. The aim of this study was to…

Risk of HSIL (CIN 2–3) on colposcopic biopsy is minimal in postmenopausal women with LSIL on cytology and a negative HRHPV test.

Abstract. Background: Current cervical cancer screening guidelines recommend a 1-year follow-up period for patients with a postmenopausal low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (LSIL) who are test negative for high-risk human papillomavirus (HrHPV). The aim of this study was to assess whether such patients had an increased immediate risk of high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion. Methods: We assessed…

Management of ASC-US or LSIL of the uterine cervix with human papilloma virus infection among young women aged less than 25 years.

Abstract.Current ASCCP guidelines recommend repeat cytology 12 months after HPV-positive results in women aged 21–24 years with either atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance (ASCUS) or a low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (LSIL). The purpose of this study was to validate an algorithm in such women with ASCUS or LSIL. A multicenter cross-sectional study was carried…
