Summary of "Fine-needle aspiration of the Warthin-like variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma: A report of three cases."

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.

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.
