Since the incidence of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) combined with Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) has increased year by year, but the mechanism is still unknown, the goal of this study was to investigate the expression of Na+/I- symporter (NIS), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-A and thyroid autoantibodies in HT combined with PTC, and to explore the relationship between HT and PTC.

In English literature, there are only few reports of Warthin-like papillary thyroid carcinoma. We presented three cases and provided clinical, grossing, cytological, and histological correlation. In o...
To evaluate the level of melatonin and the role of melatonin in the metastasis of papillary thyroid carcinoma in patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma. We measured serum melatonin levels in 81 pat...
We investigated the expression of RET9 and RET51 isoforms in medullary (MTC), papillary (PTC) thyroid carcinoma, normal thyroid tissues, and pheochromocytoma (PHEO) to verify if these isoforms are pre...
Thyroid cancer is the second most common cancer affecting Saudi women after breast cancer, with papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) accounting for 80-90% of thyroid cancers. DNA methyltransferases affec...
The western world is seeing a rising incidence of thyroid cancer. Improved diagnostic methods do not entirely explain this increase. Papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is the most common subtype of thy...
Thyroid carcinoma is the common endocrine system malignant neoplasm. At present it has become the malignant neoplasm of fastest growing incidence rate. More than 85% thyroid carcinoma is p...
Papillary thyroid microcarcinoma are small thyroid cancer measuring 1cm or less. Most of this tumor are not palpable and are identified either through pathologic examination or from imagin...
Investigators intend to evaluate the efficiency of Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) therapy to treat papillary thyroid carcinoma.
The standard surgical treatment for highly differentiated papillary thyroid cancer > 10 mm according to recent national and international guidelines, is total thyroidectomy and central lym...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between prognosis and fine needle aspiration cytology character of papillary thyroid cancer.
An aggressive THYROID GLAND malignancy which generally occurs in IODINE-deficient areas in people with previous thyroid pathology such as GOITER. It is associated with CELL DEDIFFERENTIATION of THYROID CARCINOMA (e.g., FOLLICULAR THYROID CARCINOMA; PAPILLARY THYROID CANCER). Typical initial presentation is a rapidly growing neck mass which upon metastasis is associated with DYSPHAGIA; NECK PAIN; bone pain; DYSPNEA; and NEUROLOGIC DEFICITS.
A thyroid neoplasm of mixed papillary and follicular arrangement. Its biological behavior and prognosis is the same as that of a papillary adenocarcinoma of the thyroid. (From DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1271)
A homeobox protein and transcription factor that localizes to the cell nucleus where it activates expression of thyroid specific genes such as THYROGLOBULIN and the THYROTROPIN RECEPTOR. It is critical for maintaining thyroid tissue in a differentiated state and also plays a role in lung development. Mutations in the NKX2-1 gene are associated with CHOREA, BENIGN HEREDITARY.
A paired box transcription factor that functions in the development of THYROCYTES and the control of thyroid-specific gene expression. Mutations in the PAX8 gene are associated with THYROID DYSGENESIS and THYROID NEOPLASMS.
A carcinoma composed mainly of epithelial elements with little or no stroma. Medullary carcinomas of the breast constitute 5%-7% of all mammary carcinomas; medullary carcinomas of the thyroid comprise 3%-10% of all thyroid malignancies. (From Dorland, 27th ed; DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1141; Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)
The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland in the neck, just above thecollarbone and is an endocrine gland that make hormones. These Thyroid hormones control the rate of many activities in the body, including how fast the body burns calories and how fast th...
