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 our point of view, the diagnosis of Warthin-like papillary thyroid carcinoma is feasible based on cytomorphological aspects. Usually those cases present moderately or highly cellular smears with many atypical Hürthle cells showing obvious papillary thyroid carcinoma nuclear features and without papillary structures, even if the inflammatory background is mild.

To summarize the clinical, ultrasonographic (US) and pathological characteristics of Warthin-like variant papillary thyroid carcinomas (WVPTC).
Noninvasive follicular thyroid neoplasm with papillary-like nuclear features (NIFTP) is considered an indolent neoplasm of the thyroid. Currently, this entity presents a diagnostic challenge on preope...
Non-invasive encapsulated follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma (NEFVPTC) was recently reclassified as non-invasive follicular thyroid neoplasm with papillary-like nuclear features (NIFTP)...
The purpose of this study was to compare patients' pain and satisfaction of fine needle aspiration (FNA) and core needle biopsy (CNB) for a thyroid nodule.
Follicular thyroid carcinoma, spindle cell variant is extremely rare. The tumor is predominantly composed of spindle cells with a fusiform appearance that are arranged in intersecting fascicles. Fine-...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between prognosis and fine needle aspiration cytology character of papillary thyroid cancer.
Immunohistochemical detection of the BRAF-V600E mutation on pre-operative fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) from patients suspected for papillary thyroid carcinoma, using the mutation s...
Needle size from22 to 25 were used for fine needle aspiration of palpable breast lumps. In this study we choose one, randomly, and fallow the result of cytologic evaluation regarding speci...
Thyroid nodules are common (prevalence of 12.7% in women), but are malignant in only 5% of cases. International experts agree that a preliminary cytological examination by fine needle aspi...
This is a clinical trial to compare two needles used in biopsy techniques to acquire tissue from pancreatic cancer. The hypothesis is that the tissue yield, as measured by tumor DNA and ce...
Conducting a fine needle biopsy with the aid of ENDOSCOPIC ULTRASONOGRAPHY.
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)
Using fine needles (finer than 22-gauge) to remove tissue or fluid specimens from the living body for examination in the pathology laboratory and for disease diagnosis.
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.
Needle aspiration of fluid from the MIDDLE EAR through a puncture in the TYMPANIC MEMBRANE.
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...
