  • [Title] Osseous metaplasia and mature bone formation with extramedullary hematopoiesis in follicular adenoma of thyroid gland.
  • Follicular adenomas of the thyroid may be subjected to degenerative changes like hemorrhagic and cystic changes, fibrosis, and calcification.
  • Mature bone formation is a rare phenomenon, but extramedullary hematopoiesis (EMH) has also been rarely reported in thyroid gland.
  • We describe a case of follicular adenoma with histologically proven osseous metaplasia and mature bone formation with EMH in a middle- aged woman, which, to our knowledge, is the first case in English language literature.

2. Ganguly R, Mitra S, Datta AK: Synchronous occurrence of anaplastic, follicular and papillary carcinomas with follicular adenoma in thyroid gland. Indian J Pathol Microbiol; 2010 Apr-Jun;53(2):337-9

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Synchronous occurrence of anaplastic, follicular and papillary carcinomas with follicular adenoma in thyroid gland.
  • Various combinations of thyroid carcinomas have been reported including those between different cancers of follicular cell origin and those between follicular and C-cell histogenesis.
  • Accordingly, anaplastic carcinomas have been seen to coincide with simultaneous papillary and follicular cancers.
  • We report a case of composite anaplastic and papillary cancer on one thyroid lobe with a follicular carcinoma in the other lobe in a female patient aged 64 years.
  • The patient also had a separate and independent follicular adenoma in the same lobe as the composite anaplastic and papillary carcinoma.
  • The common follicular cell origin will explain the concurrent presence of all these cancers.

  • [Title] Differential expression of CK 19 in follicular adenoma, well-differentiated tumour of uncertain malignant potential (WDT-UMP) and follicular variant of papillary carcinoma.
  • OBJECTIVE: To see the expression of cytokeratin 19, a proven helpful marker for the differential diagnosis of neoplastic follicular patterned lesions of thyroid.
  • On the basis of the recent recommendations by Chemobyl Pathologists Group, encapsulated follicular patterned lesions with questionable nuclear changes were categorized as well - differentiated tumours of uncertain malignant potential (WDT-UMP).
  • Formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissues of follicular adenoma, WDT-UMP and follicular variant of papillary carcinoma were obtained for CK 19 immunostaining.
  • RESULTS: All (16) cases of follicular adenoma were negative for CK19.
  • There were 43 cases of follicular variant of papillary carcinoma with 4+ CK 19 positivity, 14 were 3+ positive and 3 were 2+ positive.
  • CONCLUSION: CK19 is a good and useful diagnostic marker for differential diagnosis of follicular adenoma, WDT-UMP and follicular variant of papillary carcinoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Immunohistochemical analysis of survivin expression in thyroid follicular adenoma and carcinoma.
  • This retrospective study of thyroid histologic samples aimed to assess the clinical usefulness of survivin immunostaining for discrimination between follicular adenoma and carcinoma of thyroid.
  • Immunohistochemical staining for survivin was performed on 41 lesions from patients who had undergone surgery for either follicular adenoma or carcinoma of thyroid.
  • Survivin expression was significantly (P < 0.005) higher in the cases that received a diagnosis of carcinoma in comparison with follicular adenomas cases.
  • Odds ratio of follicular carcinoma for survivin expression was 21.375 (95% CI: 3.283 to 139.177).
  • Our results showed potential value of survivin in discrimination between follicular thyroid adenoma and follicular thyroid carcinoma.
  • We conclude that survivin is a potential candidate for further investigation in the proper histologic diagnosis of thyroid cancers.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Thyroid Cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] The efficacy of the thyroid peroxidase marker for distinguishing follicular thyroid carcinoma from follicular adenoma.
  • AIM: Expression of thyroid peroxidase (TPO) in the thyroid gland tissue is well known as a sensitive marker of the thyroid malignancy.
  • We have evaluated immunohistochemical assay of TPO for distinguishing follicular thyroid carcinoma from follicular adenoma.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Sections of formalin-fixed tissues obtained from 92 patients with thyroid tumors (52 follicular carcinomas and 40 follicular adenomas including the Hurthle cell type) were analyzed using a monoclonal antibody (TPO mAb 47) and the avidin-biotin peroxidase complex immunohistochemical technique.
  • Lesions with staining of more than 80% of the follicular cells/specimen were considered benign, while less than 80% were considered malignant.
  • RESULTS: TPO immunostaining correlated with the histopathological diagnosis in 24/40 cases of follicular adenomas and 41/52 cases of follicular carcinomas, giving a specificity of 60% and a sensitivity of 79%.
  • CONCLUSION: These results suggest that immunohistochemical assay of TPO expression has limited value for the differential diagnosis of follicular thyroid carcinoma from thyroid follicular adenoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] 111In-Pentetreotide uptake in a follicular adenoma of the thyroid gland: a pitfall for 111In-Pentetreotide scintigraphy.
  • 111In-pentetreotide scintigraphy showed discrete uptake of the radiotracer in the head of the pancreas and focal uptake in the right upper thyroid lobe.
  • Normal thyroid tissue and thyroid disorders, such as cancers, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and adenomas often show increased uptake of 111In-pentetreotide resulting in a possible false positive interpretation in patients with neuroendocrine tumor.
  • Adding a 48h planar image might contribute to the differential diagnosis between benign or malignant lesions, as in the present case where the uptake decreased in an adenoma after 48 hours.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Immunohistochemical separation of follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma from follicular adenoma.
  • The accurate diagnosis of differentiated thyroid tumors is very important for clinical management of patients.
  • The histopathological distinction between some types of differentiated thyroid tumors can be very difficult even for experienced pathologists.
  • We used immunohistochemical markers from published data obtained from DNA expression profiling, tissue microarray analysis, and immunohistochemistry to analyze a series of 157 thyroid tumors and 5 normal thyroids.
  • These analyses showed that several antibodies were useful in distinguishing follicular adenomas from follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinomas including HBME-1, CITED1, galectin-3, cytokeratin 19, and S100A4 (p < 0.0001).
  • A combination of markers consisting of a panel of HBME-1, galectin-3, and CK19 or a panel of HBME-1, CITED1, and galectin-3 was usually most effective in distinguishing follicular adenoma from follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma.
  • These results indicate that some individual antibodies or a panel of antibodies combined with histopathological analysis can be useful in separating follicular adenoma (FA) from follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma (FVPTC).

  • [Title] Are there any specific ultrasound findings of nodular hyperplasia ("leave me alone" lesion) to differentiate it from follicular adenoma?
  • BACKGROUND: Among benign thyroid nodules, nodular hyperplasia (NH) is the most common and represents a "leave me alone" lesion with no requirement for further treatment, while follicular adenoma (FA) is a lesion that should potentially be removed due to the difficulty of differentiation from a carcinoma on a biopsy alone.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: Pathologically proven cases of benign thyroid nodules (95 cases: 53 NH, 42 FA) were reviewed retrospectively.

  • [Title] Clear cell follicular adenoma of the thyroid--a challenge in intra-operative diagnostics.
  • Pure clear cell lesions of the thyroid gland are rare and prone to pose severe diagnostic challenges.
  • We report the case of a 61-year-old man with a clear cell adenoma of the thyroid.
  • The patient presented with a hypoechoic thyroid nodule.
  • Fine needle aspiration cytology rendered the primary diagnosis of a follicular neoplasia, and right thyroid lobectomy was performed.
  • By intra-operative frozen section, the diagnosis given was clear cell lesion of unknown malignant potential.
  • Based on the light microscopic findings and the immunohistochemical profile, the lesion was diagnosed as clear cell follicular adenoma of the thyroid.
  • A follicular thyroid lesion presenting with clear cell changes in fine needle aspiration cytology or intra-operative frozen section consultation constitutes a diagnostic challenge to every surgical pathologist.
  • As immunohistochemistry of cytologic specimens is hampered by several methodological problems, any thyroid lesion with clear cell features warrants further histologic assessment to render the correct diagnosis.

  • [Title] Tumor-to-tumor metastasis to a thyroid follicular adenoma as the initial presentation of a colonic adenocarcinoma.
  • The incidence of thyroid involvement by metastatic disease from distant organs ranges from an average of 3.1% in surgical series to 5.3% in autopsy series.
  • Herein is described the case of a 59-year-old woman whose thyroid nodule (a follicular adenoma) was resected and found to contain foci of a well-differentiated adenocarcinoma with a morphologic and immunohistochemical profile consistent with origination from the lower gastrointestinal tract.
  • This is, to the authors' knowledge, the first reported example of a colon adenocarcinoma whose initial clinical manifestation was a metastasis to a thyroid neoplasm and only the third reported example of a colonic adenocarcinoma metastatic to a thyroid tumor.
  • In a review of previously reported examples of tumor-to-tumor metastases involving a thyroid neoplasm as the recipient, the following features were present in the majority: (i) multifocality of the metastatic tumor aggregates;.
  • In general, strikingly divergent morphologic features in an otherwise typical thyroid neoplasm should elicit a differential diagnosis that takes into consideration the possibility of metastasis.

  • [Title] RET and p53 expression in thyroid follicular adenoma: a study of 52 cases with 14 years follow-up.
  • Most previous studies on RET and p53 proteins have focused on thyroid papillary carcinoma.
  • We investigated the role of RET and p53 protein expressions using immunohistochemistry on 52 cases of thyroid follicular adenomas and studied the follow-up records of these patients.
  • 3 had recurrent goitre, 2 of these were diagnosed as colloid goitre while the third was a follicular lesion.
  • In conclusion, unlike papillary carcinoma in which the roles of ret and p53 oncogenes are known, their roles in influencing the behaviour of follicular adenoma has not been ascertained.

  • [Title] Expression of the sonic hedgehog pathway molecules in synchronous follicular adenoma and papillary carcinoma of the thyroid gland in predicting malignancy.
  • The Sonic Hedgehog pathway is required for normal thyroid gland development, but when activated as a result of gene mutation or overexpression, it may stimulate thyroid tumor cell proliferation.
  • This study determines whether 3 molecules, Patched, Smoothened, and Sonic Hedgehog, involved in the Sonic Hedgehog pathway are overexpressed equally in synchronous follicular thyroid adenoma and papillary thyroid carcinoma.
  • METHODS: Eighteen patients with synchronous follicular thyroid adenoma and papillary thyroid carcinoma underwent thyroidectomy.
  • Patched expression was detected in 5 of 13 (38%) follicular adenomas and 5 of 12 (42%) papillary carcinomas.
  • Smoothened was expressed in 4 of 13 (31%) follicular adenomas and 3 of 13 (23%) papillary carcinomas.
  • Sonic Hedgehog was expressed in 4 of 13 (31%) follicular adenomas and 11 of 13 (85%) papillary carcinomas.
  • CONCLUSION: Expression of the 3 molecules involved in the Sonic Hedgehog pathway was similar in follicular thyroid adenoma, but Sonic Hedgehog expression was a more sensitive indicator of malignancy in papillary thyroid carcinoma.
  • Greater understanding of the Sonic Hedgehog pathway may provide molecular methods for preventing or treating papillary thyroid carcinoma.

  • [Title] Role of Ki-67 as a proliferative marker in lesions of thyroid.
  • BACKGROUND: Specific criteria are used to diagnose thyroid neoplasms; however, the distinction between certain neoplasms, such as follicular adenoma and carcinoma, could be difficult.
  • AIMS: To evaluate the role of the proliferative marker Ki-67 in nonneoplastic and neoplastic lesions of the thyroid, with a special emphasis on the distinction between follicular adenoma and follicular carcinoma.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: One hundred cases of thyroid lesions, including 50 nonneoplastic and 50 neoplastic lesions, were retrieved from the archives of the Department of Pathology, Pt.
  • RESULTS: Ki-67 labeling index (LI) showed a progressive rise from multinodular goiter to benign to malignant neoplasms.
  • A statistically significant difference was observed in Ki-67 counts between multinodular goiter vs papillary carcinoma (P < 0.05) and follicular adenoma vs follicular carcinoma (P < 0.05).
  • CONCLUSIONS: In the present study, Ki-67 was found to be useful in differentiating between follicular adenoma and follicular carcinoma, but since the sample size of our study was small, larger studies are needed to confirm this observation as well as to assign a cutoff value for differentiating benign from malignant tumors.

  • Follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma is a lesion that frequently causes difficulties from a diagnostic perspective in the laboratory.
  • The purpose of this study was to interrogate a cohort of archival thyroid lesions using gene expression analysis of a panel of markers proposed to have utility as adjunctive markers in the diagnosis of thyroid neoplasia and follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma in particular.
  • Laser Capture Microdissection was used to procure pure cell populations for extraction.
  • HLA-DMA, HLA-DQB1, MT1X, CSNK1G2 and RAB23 were found to be differentially expressed (P<0.05) when comparing follicular adenoma and follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma.
  • Comparison of follicular adenoma and follicular thyroid carcinoma groups showed significant differential expression for MT1K, MT1X and RAB23 (P<0.05).
  • Comparison of the papillary thyroid carcinoma group (classic and follicular variants) and the follicular adenoma group showed differential expression for CSNK1G2, HLA-DQB1, MT1X and RAB23 (P<0.05).
  • Finally, KRAS2 was found to be differentially expressed (P<0.05) when comparing the papillary thyroid carcinoma and follicular thyroid carcinoma groups.
  • This panel of molecular targets discriminates between follicular adenoma, papillary thyroid carcinoma, follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma and follicular thyroid carcinoma by their expression repertoires.
  • It may have utility for broader use in the setting of fine-needle aspiration cytology and could improve the definitive diagnosis of certain categories of thyroid malignancy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Detection and classification of thyroid follicular lesions based on nuclear structure from histopathology images.
  • Follicular lesions of the thyroid are traditionally difficult and tedious challenges in diagnostic surgical pathology in part due to lack of obvious discriminatory cytological and microarchitectural features.
  • We describe a computerized method to detect and classify follicular adenoma of the thyroid, follicular carcinoma of the thyroid, and normal thyroid based on the nuclear chromatin distribution from digital images of tissue obtained by routine histological methods.
  • Unlike previous attempts in detecting and classifying these thyroid lesions using computational imaging, our results show that our method can automatically classify the data pertaining to 10 different human cases with 100% accuracy after blind cross validation using at most 43 nuclei randomly selected from each patient.
  • We conclude that nuclear structure alone contains enough information to automatically classify the normal thyroid, follicular carcinoma, and follicular adenoma, as long as groups of nuclei (instead of individual ones) are used.
  • We also conclude that the distribution of nuclear size and chromatin concentration (how tightly packed it is) seem to be discriminating features between nuclei of follicular adenoma, follicular carcinoma, and normal thyroid.

  • The architectural pattern of follicular adenoma varies from trabecular to macrofollicular, and in most instances more than one architectural pattern is observed in one tumor.
  • Adenomatous goiter, a hyperplastic lesion of follicles, is the most common tumorous lesion of thyroid gland.
  • The gland is distorted with a nodular surface.
  • Mature or immature teratoma is also observed in the thyroid gland.

  • [Title] Lymphatic and blood vessel density in the follicular patterned lesions of thyroid.
  • The histologic distinction of follicular patterned lesions of thyroid, that is follicular adenoma, follicular carcinoma, and the follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma can be extremely difficult.
  • The differential diagnostic criteria regarding nuclear features of papillary thyroid carcinoma are subjective, resulting in high interobserver variability.
  • Although papillary thyroid carcinoma metastasizes mainly via lymphatic vessels, whereas follicular carcinoma spreads mostly hematogenously, there are no data regarding utility of objective quantitative criteria such as lymphatic and general blood vessel density for the differential diagnosis of these lesions.
  • In this study, 35 follicular patterned lesions of thyroid (14 follicular adenomas, 10 follicular carcinomas, and 11 of the follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinomas) were evaluated immunohistochemically.
  • There were no significant differences in the intra- and/or peritumoral general vessel densities, and peritumoral lymphatic vessel densities among follicular adenoma, follicular carcinoma and the follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma.
  • In contrast, the intratumoral lymphatic vessel density was significantly higher in the follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma than in either follicular adenoma or follicular carcinoma (34.63, 15.04, and 0.11 respectively; P<0.0001).
  • The results of the study show that intratumoral lymphatic vessel density may serve as a useful tool in the differential diagnosis of follicular patterned lesions of thyroid.

  • [Title] Incidental papillary carcinoma in patients treated surgically for benign thyroid diseases.
  • BACKGROUND: The frequency of incidental papillary carcinoma (IPC) has been reported to be between 4.6 % and 10% in operatively treated benign thyroid diseases.
  • This study reviews the occurrence of IPC in thyroid glands removed for benign disease at our institution.
  • METHODS: Six hundred and seventy-eight patients underwent partial or total thyroidectomy for benign thyroid diseases.
  • The incidence of IPC was compared among patients with Hashimoto's thyroiditis, multinodular goiter, follicular adenoma, and Graves' disease.
  • RESULTS: Overall, 81 (12.0%) IPCs were recorded with decreasing order of frequency: Hashimoto's thyroiditis, follicular adenoma, goiter, and Graves' disease.
  • Contralateral IPC was detected in 6/15 (40%) patients with follicular adenoma.
  • CONCLUSION: The overall incidence of IPC in benign operatively resected thyroid disease was 12%.
  • IPC was encountered in the contralateral lobe in 40% of patients with follicular adenoma.
  • The association of IPCs with Hashimoto's thyroiditis may indicate a link to thyroid cancer.
  • Total thyroidectomy may be considered an appropriate operative treatment in patients with Hashimoto's thyroiditis and follicular adenoma requiring operation owing to the high incidence and frequent contralateral involvement of IPC, respectively.

  • Nodules of the thyroid gland are frequently encountered, occurring in up to 7% of the population, and although most of these nodules are benign, carcinomas of the thyroid gland are the most common malignancy of the endocrine system.
  • Although the different types of thyroid carcinoma are few, a wide variety of recurring problems exists in both their histologic and cytologic evaluation.
  • Here, I will review a selected group of problematic areas, including unusual histologic variants of follicular adenoma, criteria for diagnosing minimally invasive follicular carcinoma, the use of fine-needle aspiration as a screening test for follicular neoplasia, challenging variants of papillary carcinoma, and features of poorly differentiated carcinoma.

  • Thyroid neoplasms are classified into three major categories: epithelial, nonepithelial, and secondary.
  • Most primary epithelial tumors of thyroid are derived from follicular cells.
  • These include follicular adenoma and carcinoma (Hürthle and non-Hürthle), and papillary carcinoma and its variants.
  • Other primary epithelial tumors include medullary carcinoma, mixed medullary and follicular carcinomas, insular and poorly differentiated carcinoma, anaplastic carcinoma, and the least common squamous carcinoma and related tumors.
  • The secondary tumors represent metastatic tumors to the thyroid usually originating in lung, kidney, and breast.
  • In this article, the authors review the unusual tumors of the thyroid, their morphologic features, and clinical and prognostic implications.

  • INTRODUCTION: Apoptosis (programmed cell death) is the best described mode of physiological cell death.
  • The first is external protein signal originating from other cell--also named as "death signal".
  • Another one is specific cell reaction for external stress factors.
  • Blood concentration of proteins regulating both pathways of apoptosis may be useful in early diagnosis and staging of thyroid tumors.
  • The aim of study was evaluation of p53 and sFasL blood concentration in patients with benign follicular adenoma and follicular thyroid cancer.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study population was composed of 28 patients: 14 with thyroid carcinoma and 14 patients with follicular neoplasm (NF).
  • P53 and sFasL levels were evaluated before surgery and related to the histopathological diagnosis obtained post-surgery.
  • RESULTS: The analysis revealed high sFasL blood concentration in patients with follicular thyroid cancer in comparison with the group with follicular adenoma.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Evaluation of sFasL serum level concentration may be useful in preoperative diagnosis of follicular thyroid tumors.

  • [Title] Trefoil factor 3 immunohistochemical characterization of follicular thyroid lesions from tissue microarray.
  • OBJECTIVES: To characterize trefoil factor 3 (TFF3) expression in normal thyroid tissue samples compared with that in follicular adenoma, follicular carcinoma, and follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma using immunohistochemistry on tissue microarrays.
  • DESIGN: Immunohistochemical analysis of 83 normal thyroid tissue and of 83 follicular neoplasms (26 follicular adenomas, 25 follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma, 23 follicular thyroid carcinomas, and 9 papillary thyroid carcinomas) was performed using an antibody to TFF3 on tissue microarray sections composed of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue samples.
  • PATIENTS: Thyroid tissue samples collected from patients over a 15-year period were obtained from the University of North Carolina Hospitals Division of Surgical Pathology archives.
  • MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Thyroid tissue samples were graded by a pathologist based on intensity of antibody staining and on percentage of cells stained.
  • Data were analyzed for semiquantitative differences in immunohistochemical intensity of antibody staining and in percentage of cells stained among normal thyroid tissue samples, follicular adenoma, follicular thyroid carcinoma, follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma, and papillary thyroid carcinoma.
  • RESULTS: Semiquantitative analysis demonstrated that immunohistochemistry detects significant levels of TFF3 expression in normal thyroid tissue samples compared with that in follicular lesions based on intensity of antibody staining (P < .05).
  • Only follicular thyroid carcinoma demonstrated a significant reduction in percentage of cells stained compared with that in normal thyroid tissue samples (P = .03).
  • No significant differences in intensity of antibody staining or in the percentage of cells stained were noted among follicular adenoma, follicular thyroid carcinoma, follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma, or papillary thyroid carcinoma.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Protein expression data validate gene expression findings that follicular neoplastic lesions have decreased expression of TFF3 compared with that in normal thyroid tissue samples.
  • These findings contribute to evidence suggesting that TFF3 may have a role in normal thyroid tissue function and that thyroid carcinomas may have reduced expression of TFF3, in contradistinction to other carcinomas that overexpress TFF3.

  • [Title] [Loss of heterozygosity on chromosome 3p in thyroid tumors].
  • OBJECTIVE: To study the loss of heterozygosity (LOH) on chromosome 3p in thyroid tumors.
  • METHODS: LOH at 11 microsatellite loci was analyzed in 74 cases of thyroid tumors (including 20 follicular adenomas, 24 follicular thyroid carcinomas and 30 papillary thyroid carcinomas) by polymerase chain reaction and silver stain.
  • RESULTS: LOH on chromosome 3p was detected in 71% of follicular thyroid carcinoma (17/24), 30% of the papillary thyroid carcinoma (9/30) and 10% of the follicular adenoma (2/20) case.
  • Two minimal common deleted regions (CDR) (3p26-pter and 3p14.2-3p22) involving significant sites of LOH has identified in follicular thyroid carcinoma.
  • 2-26.1) in papillary thyroid carcinoma.
  • CONCLUSIONS: LOH is more frequently identified in follicular thyroid carcinoma than in papillary thyroid carcinoma and follicular adenoma.
  • The 3 CDR on chromosome 3p may harbor tumor suppressor genes involved in the pathogenesis of follicular thyroid carcinoma and papillary thyroid carcinoma.

  • [Title] Comparison of metallothionein (MT) and Ki-67 antigen expression in benign and malignant thyroid tumours.
  • Thyroid carcinomas are the most frequently occurring tumours in the endocrine system.
  • Metallothioneins (MT) and Ki-67 proteins are present in intensely proliferating cells, and their expression has been observed in numerous tumours, including thyroid tumours.
  • The purpose of this study was to analyse the relationship between intensity of MT expression and Ki-67 antigen on one hand and histological features of the examined thyroid tumours on the other.
  • The investigated material included 186 archival paraffin blocks with samples of various thyroid tissues, obtained from the Chair and Department of Pathomorphology, Medical University of Wroclaw.
  • A significant difference in MT expression was noted between different tumours of the thyroid: the highest expression was detected in follicular carcinoma and the lowest was detected in medullary carcinoma.
  • Expression of MT was also significantly elevated in follicular carcinoma as compared to follicular adenoma.
  • On the other hand, no significant differences were seen between expression of Ki-67 antigen in follicular adenoma and follicular carcinoma.
  • Moreover, these investigations detected no correlation between the expression of MT and Ki-67 antigen in follicular adenoma and follicular carcinoma.
  • In view of the obtained results, the expression of MT can be considered as a potential marker of differentiation between the two types of thyroid tumours, which are otherwise difficult to differentiate.

  • [Title] Malignancy risk assessment in adenomatoid nodules and suspicious follicular lesions of the thyroid obtained by fine needle aspiration cytology.
  • Our aim was to assess malignancy risk in adenomatoid nodules and suspicious follicular lesions of the thyroid obtained by fine needle aspiration (FNA) cytology.
  • Retrospective research was performed of 276 patients who underwent thyroid surgery after preoperative ultrasound-guided FNA diagnosis of either adenomatoid nodule, cellular follicular lesion, "suspicious for follicular neoplasm" or follicular neoplasm.
  • Out of 276 patients, FNA reports showed 15 diagnoses (5%) of adenomatoid nodules, 73 (26%) cellular follicular lesions, 76 (28%) "suspicious for follicular neoplasm", and 112 diagnoses (41%) of follicular neoplasm.
  • In FNA reports of adenomatoid nodule (N = 15), there were seven (47%) pathohistological diagnoses (PHDs) of nodular goiter, and eight (53%) PHDs of follicular adenoma.
  • In FNA reports of cellular follicular lesion (N = 73), there were 2 (3%) PHDs of thyroiditis, 32 (44%) PHDs of nodular goiter, 38 (52%) PHDs of follicular adenoma, and one (1%) PHD of papillary carcinoma.
  • In FNA reports of "suspicious for follicular neoplasm" (N = 76), there was one (1%) PHD of thyroiditis, 24 (32%) PHDs of nodular goiter, 47 (62%) PHDs of follicular adenoma and four (5%) diagnoses of papillary carcinoma.
  • In FNA reports of follicular neoplasm (N = 112), there were 25 (22%) PHDs of nodular goiter, 72 (64%) PHDs of follicular adenoma, and 15 (14%) PHDs of thyroid carcinoma.
  • Stratification of cytologic diagnoses of follicular thyroid lesions into different subcategories with various probabilities of malignancy allows more accurate estimation of malignancy risk and individualized patient treatment, when deciding between immediate operation and close follow-ups with repeat FNA.

  • INTRODUCTION: We aimed at assessing the significance of nm23 gene expression in papillary and follicular carcinomas, the two most common differentiated thyroid carcinomas.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: During a cross-sectional study, 173 paraffin blocks, including 131 papillary thyroid carcinomas, 12 follicular carcinomas and 30 follicular adenomas were stained with nm23 marker by immunohistochemistry method.
  • RESULTS: nm23 was positive in 40% of the follicular adenoma, 67.2% of the papillary carcinoma and 66.7% of the follicular carcinoma. p value was more than 0.05 in the assessment of the relationship between nm23 and all of the above-mentioned parameters in differentiated thyroid carcinomas. nm23 expression did not significantly differentiate between follicular adenoma and carcinoma.
  • Also, nm23 cannot be considered as a useful marker for the evaluation of invasion in differentiated thyroid carcinomas or in distinctions between follicular adenoma and carcinoma.

  • [Title] Morphometric parameters and silver stain used in diagnosis of thyroid follicular diseases.
  • Fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) of the thyroid is limited in distinguishing hyperplastic nodular goiter from true follicular neoplasm and in separating follicular adenoma from follicular carcinoma.
  • The present study was done to evaluate if the morphologic and morphometric investigations and silver staining of nucleolar organizer regions (NORs), either alone or in association would help to differentiate the thyroid follicular diseases.
  • 40 FNAB smears of thyroid follicular diseases, histopathologically diagnosed as nodular goiter, lymphocytic thyroiditis, follicular adenoma and follicular carcinoma, were analyzed using the standard cytological exam, quantitative analysis and NORs assessment.
  • The qualitative evaluation, correlated with the numerical results obtained from the quantitative analysis, revealed that the cellular pattern, mean nuclear diameter and NORs area are valuable criteria in the diagnosis of the benign and malign follicular lesions, respectively.
  • The results attained through morphometry increase the sensibility and the specificity of FNAB in the diagnosis of thyroid follicular carcinomas.

  • [Title] Thyroid follicular carcinoma: sonographic features of 50 cases.
  • OBJECTIVE: The purpose of our study was to retrospectively evaluate sonography of thyroid follicular neoplasms for features that would aid in distinguishing follicular carcinoma from follicular adenoma and for any imaging features that distinguish the Hürthle-cell variant of follicular carcinoma from classic follicular carcinoma.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study cohort consisted of patients with the diagnosis of follicular carcinoma and patients with the diagnosis of follicular adenoma.
  • Fifty patients (25 men and 25 women; median age, 59.5 years) with a diagnosis of follicular carcinoma (27 with classic follicular carcinoma, 22 with Hürthle-cell variant of follicular carcinoma, and one insular variant) in a 6-year period were included.
  • Fifty-two control patients (10 men and 42 women; median age, 46.5 years) were selected from a random sampling of all cases of follicular adenoma during the same time period.
  • All study patients and control patients underwent surgical resection and pathologic analysis of their thyroid follicular neoplasm.
  • RESULTS: Hypoechoic appearance (82% of follicular carcinoma patients vs 50% of follicular adenoma patients; p<0.005; odds ratio [OR]), 0.5; 95% CI, 0.3-0.7), absence of halo (64% of follicular carcinoma patients vs 42% of follicular adenoma patients; p<0.05; OR, 0.4; 95% CI, 0.2-0.9), absence of cystic change (90% of follicular carcinoma patients vs 69% of follicular adenoma patients; p<0.05; OR, 0.2; 95% CI, 0.1-0.7), greater patient age (median age of 59.5 years for follicular carcinoma patients vs 46.5 years for follicular adenoma patients; p<0.05), size of the tumor (median size of 11.75 mL for follicular carcinoma patients vs 5.95 mL for follicular adenoma patients; p<0.05), and male sex (50% of follicular carcinoma patients vs 19.2% of follicular adenoma patients; p<0.005; OR, 3.7; 95% CI, 1.6-8.9) were more frequently associated with follicular thyroid cancer than with benign adenoma.
  • Within the follicular carcinoma subgroup, homogeneous or predominantly homogeneous echotexture (67% of classic follicular carcinoma patients vs 36% of Hürthle-cell variant of follicular carcinoma patients; p<0.05; OR, 3.5; 95% CI, 1.1-11.4) and the presence of calcifications (22% of classic follicular carcinoma patients vs 4% of Hürthle-cell variant of follicular carcinoma patients [multivariate analysis including age]; p < 0.05; OR, 22.9; 95% CI, 2.0-261.9) were associated with classic follicular carcinoma.
  • Greater patient age (median age of 53 years for classic follicular carcinoma patients vs 64.5 years for Hürthle-cell variant of follicular carcinoma patients; p<0.05) was associated with Hürthle-cell variant follicular carcinoma.
  • There was no association between tumor volume, sex, sonographic halo, refractive shadowing, echogenicity, visible invasion, lymph node enlargement, adjacent nonfollicular suspicious lesions, vascularity subtype, and cystic change between the subgroups of follicular carcinoma.
  • CONCLUSION: The sonographic features of follicular adenoma and follicular carcinoma are very similar, but larger lesion size, lack of a sonographic halo, hypoechoic appearance, and absence of cystic change favored a follicular carcinoma diagnosis.
  • Within the follicular carcinoma subgroup, Hürthle-cell variant of follicular carcinoma is more often seen in older patients with nodules having a heterogeneous appearance and lacking internal calcifications.

  • [Title] Fine needle aspiration cytology in diagnosis and management of thyroid disease.
  • The objective of this study was to determine the efficacy of fine needle aspiration cytology in diagnosis and management of thyroid nodules.
  • The study also evaluated the predictive value of pre-operative fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) in surgical decision making, by comparing the final pathological diagnosis with the initial FNAC result.
  • Failures were mainly noted in cases of follicular neoplasm.
  • Our results indicate that FNAC is helpful in the diagnosis of thyroid pathology.
  • However, complete histopathological analysis is essential to distinguish follicular adenoma from follicular carcinoma.
  • From this study, it can be concluded that FNAC is a cost-effective method of evaluating thyroid pathology pre-operatively and plays a useful role in planning the surgical management of thyroid nodules.

  • [Title] HBME-1 expression in follicular tumor of the thyroid: an investigation of whether it can be used as a marker to diagnose follicular carcinoma.
  • BACKGROUND: HBME-1 has been recognized as a useful marker for diagnosing thyroid carcinoma.
  • In this study, we investigated whether it has a diagnostic value for discriminating follicular carcinoma from adenoma.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: We investigated HBME-1 expression in 138 follicular carcinomas, 155 follicular adenomas, 98 adenomatous nodules and 37 papillary carcinomas, using anti-HBME-1 monoclonal antibody.
  • RESULTS: HBME-1 was positive in 60.9% of follicular carcinoma and the incidence was significantly higher (p<0.0001) than that of follicular adenoma, 30.3%.
  • In adenomatous nodules, only 17.3% were classified as positive, which was lower even than that of follicular adenoma (p=0.0257).
  • We calculated the positive predictive value of HBME-1 in discriminating follicular carcinoma from adenoma as 64.2%.
  • CONCLUSION: These results suggest that, although HBME-1 contributes to the diagnosis of papillary carcinoma, it could not be applied in the preoperative diagnosis of follicular carcinoma, for example, using fine-needle aspiration biopsy samples.

  • [Title] TFF3-based candidate gene discrimination of benign and malignant thyroid tumors in a region with borderline iodine deficiency.
  • BACKGROUND: With the advent of microarray technology, increasing numbers of marker genes are proposed to distinguish benign and malignant thyroid lesions.
  • In this paper, we re-evaluate the diagnostic potential of 10 proposed candidate genes in benign and malignant thyroid pathologies in a region with borderline iodine deficiency.
  • METHODS: Quantitative real-time PCR was performed for CCND2, PLAB, PCSK2, HGD1, TFF3, B4GALT, LGALS3, ETS1, ADM3, and TG in 150 thyroid specimens, including 52 benign thyroid nodules (28 follicular adenoma and 24 adenomatous nodules), 52 corresponding normal thyroid tissues, 20 follicular carcinomas, 20 papillary carcinomas, and six undifferentiated carcinomas.
  • RESULTS: On a single-gene basis, significant differences in mRNA expression were found for TFF3, PLAB, and ADM3 in benign thyroid nodules and thyroid malignancy.
  • Using two-marker gene sets, we identified 11 combinations, which allowed both a distinction of benign and malignant thyroid nodules and a discrimination of follicular adenoma and carcinoma.
  • However, for cancer prediction, analysis of a minimum of six genes per sample was necessary and allowed correct prediction of a benign thyroid lesion and thyroid cancer with 94% accuracy in the most discriminative set (TFF3/PLAB/TG/ADM3/HGD1/LGALS3).
  • CONCLUSION: We confirm the applicability of a number of recently proposed marker genes for the distinction of benign and malignant thyroid tumor and suggest that their diagnostic usefulness is independent of the iodide supply.

  • [Title] Application of artificial neural network for classification of thyroid follicular tumors.
  • OBJECTIVE: To analyze smears of 197 thyroid follicular tumors (adenoma and carcinoma).
  • STUDY DESIGN: Several types of artificial neural networks (ANN) of various designs were used for diagnosis of thyroid follicular tumors.
  • RESULTS: The ANN was trained by means of cytologic features characteristic for a thyroid follicular adenoma and a follicular carcinoma.
  • At subsequent testing, the correct cytologic diagnosis was established in 93% (25 of 27) of cases.
  • The morphometry increased the accuracy of diagnosis for follicular tumors in up to 97% (75 of 78) of cases.
  • ANN correctly distinguished an adenoma or a carcinoma in 87% (73 of 84) of cases when using color microscopic images of tumors.
  • CONCLUSION: The usage of ANN has raised sensitivity of cytologic diagnosis of follicular tumors to 90%, compared with a usual cytologic method (sensitivity of 56%).
  • The automatic classification of thyroid follicular tumors by means of ANN is prospective.

  • [Title] Differential expression of the components of the plasminogen activating system in human thyroid tumour derived cell lines and papillary carcinomas.
  • We characterised the expression of the plasminogen activators (uPA and tPA), the uPA receptor (uPAR) and the PAs inhibitors (PAI-1 and PAI-2) in human thyroid cell lines derived from normal thyroid, follicular adenoma, follicular, papillary and anaplastic carcinomas.
  • Similar results were found in 13 papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) tissues which were mirrored in Western blot experiments.
  • In conclusion, thyroid carcinoma cell lines and PTC overexpress uPA, uPAR and PAI-1 and the correlation of uPA and its cognate receptor with tumour size and metastasis may suggest their potential prognostic relevance in thyroid cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Frequent epigenetic inactivation of RASSF10 in thyroid cancer.
  • In our study, we analyzed the role of a novel RASSF member termed RASSF10 in thyroid carcinogenesis.
  • The RASSF10 CpG island promoter was intensively methylated in nine thyroid cancer cell lines and in 66% of primary thyroid carcinomas.
  • RASSF10 methylation was significantly increased in primary thyroid carcinoma compared to normal thyroid and follicular adenoma (0 and 10%, respectively; p < 0.004).
  • Patients with cancerous lymph nodes were significantly hypermethylated for RASSF10 in primary thyroid tumors compared to those with non-affected lymph nodes (79 vs. 36%; p = 0.047).
  • In summary, our data show frequent epigenetic inactivation of RASSF10 in thyroid cancer.
  • These results suggest that RASSF10 may encode a novel epigenetically inactivated candidate tumor suppressor gene in thyroid carcinogenesis.

  • [Title] Molecular fine-needle aspiration biopsy diagnosis of thyroid nodules by tumor specific mutations and gene expression patterns.
  • Fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) is currently the most sensitive and specific tool for the presurgical differential diagnosis of thyroid malignancy, but has also substantial limitations.
  • While approximately 75% of FNAB reveal benign lesions and 5% already cytologically prove malignancy, up to 20% of FNAB show follicular proliferation for which follicular adenoma, follicular carcinoma, and follicular variant of papillary carcinoma can only be distinguished histologically, thus requiring thyroid surgery.
  • However, new biomarkers that might improve the accuracy of FNAB come along with the discovery of more and more details of the molecular etiology of thyroid tumors.
  • Nevertheless, the application of molecular markers will significantly improve thyroid tumor diagnosis and thus it will help to prevent unnecessary surgeries and it will also help to guide mutation-specific targeted therapies.

  • [Title] Analysis of cyclin D1 and retinoblastoma protein immunoreactivity in follicular thyroid tumors.
  • Protein products of cyclin D1 and retinoblastoma (Rb) genes play crucial roles in regulation of G1/S transition in the cell cycle.
  • In this study we analyzed, using immunohistochemical methods, the expression of cyclin D1 and Rb proteins in material from medical archives (12 cases of follicular thyroid carcinoma, 57 cases of follicular adenoma and 17 nodular goiter cases).
  • A positive nuclear reaction for cyclin D1 was observed in 83.3% (10/12) of the follicular carcinomas, in 96.5% (55/57) of the follicular adenomas and in 23.5% (4/17) of nodular goiters.
  • Overexpression of cyclin Dl (more than 50% of positively staining cells) was noted in 25% (3/12) of the follicular carcinomas and in 22.8% (13/57) of the follicular adenomas.
  • The number of carcinoma cases with cyclin D1 overexpression did not differ statistically in any significant way from the follicular adenoma group (p = 1.000).
  • A positive nuclear reaction for Rb protein was noted in 100% of the follicular carcinomas (12/12), in 96.5% of the follicular adenomas (55/57) and in 47.1% of the cases (8/17) of nodular goiter.
  • Rb protein overexpression (more than 50% of positively staining cells) was found in 83.3% (10/12) of the follicular carcinomas, in 68.4% (39/57) of the follicular adenomas and in 11.8% (2/17) of the nodular goiters.
  • The number of cases with Rb protein overexpression in the follicular carcinoma group did not differ significantly from that in the follicular adenoma group (p = 0.486).
  • In the follicular carcinoma group, that correlation was borderline (Rp = 0.437; p = 0.072) and, in the follicular adenoma group, it was statistically insignificant (Rs = 0.217; p = 0.105).

  • [Title] A cohort study of thyroid cancer and other thyroid diseases after the Chornobyl accident: dose-response analysis of thyroid follicular adenomas detected during first screening in Ukraine (1998-2000).
  • The Chornobyl (Chernobyl) accident in 1986 exposed many individuals to radioactive iodines, chiefly (131)I, the effects of which on benign thyroid diseases are largely unknown.
  • To investigate the risk of follicular adenoma in relation to radiation dose after Chornobyl, the authors analyzed the baseline data from a prospective screening cohort study of those exposed as children or adolescents.
  • A stratified random sample was selected from all individuals who were younger than 18 years, had thyroid radioactivity measurements taken within 2 months after the accident, and resided in the three heavily contaminated areas in Ukraine.
  • This analysis is based on the 23 cases diagnosed in 12,504 subjects for whom personal history of thyroid diseases was known.
  • In conclusion, persons exposed to radioactive iodines as children and adolescents have an increased risk of follicular adenoma, though it is smaller than the risk of thyroid cancer in the same cohort.

  • [Title] How to define follicular thyroid carcinoma?
  • The appropriate diagnosis of follicular thyroid carcinoma (FTC) still depends on its histological discrimination from follicular adenoma (including the distinction of benign from malignant oncocytic variants), papillary thyroid carcinoma (particularly from the follicular variants) and poorly differentiated thyroid carcinoma.
  • The introduction of the micro array technique, however, may offer the possibility of getting a better insight into the natural history, as well as predicting the clinical course, of a given thyroid nodule.
  • This review attempts to recapitulate common standards in the diagnosis of FTC, to summarise current molecular data available to distinguish FTC from other benign and malignant tumours and, finally, to outline future perspectives to define FTC on its specific genetic features.

  • [Title] Thyroid tissue analysis through Raman spectroscopy.
  • The diagnosis of thyroid pathologies is usually made by cytologic analysis of the fine needle aspiration (FNA) material.
  • The application of optical spectroscopy in the characterization of alterations could result in the development of a minimally invasive and non-destructive method for the diagnosis of thyroid diseases.
  • Thus, the objective of this work was to study the biochemical alterations of tissues and hormones (T3 and T4) of the thyroid gland by means of molecular vibrations probed by FT-Raman spectroscopy.
  • Through the discriminative linear analysis of the Raman spectra of the tissue, it was possible to establish (in percentages) the correct classification index among the groups: goitre adjacent tissue, goitre nodular region, follicular adenoma, follicular carcinoma and papillary carcinoma.
  • A relevant result was obtained in the analysis of the benign tissues (goitre and follicular adenoma) versus malignant tissues (papillary and follicular carcinomas), for which the index was 72.5% and considered good.
  • In conclusion, some biochemical alterations, represented by the FT-Raman spectra, were identified that could possibly be used to classify histologic groups of the thyroid.

  • [Title] Impact of proto-oncogene mutation detection in cytological specimens from thyroid nodules improves the diagnostic accuracy of cytology.
  • CONTEXT: Fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) is the gold standard for the differential diagnosis of thyroid nodules but has the limitation of inadequate sampling or indeterminate lesions.
  • OBJECTIVE: We aimed to verify whether search of thyroid cancer-associated protooncogene mutations in cytological samples may improve the diagnostic accuracy of FNAC.
  • STUDY DESIGN: One hundred seventy-four consecutive patients undergoing thyroid surgery were submitted to FNAC (on 235 thyroid nodules) that was used for cytology and molecular analysis of BRAF, RAS, RET, TRK, and PPRgamma mutations.
  • The presence of mutations at cytology was associated with cancer 91.1% of the times and follicular adenoma 8.9% of the time.
  • BRAF or RET/PTC mutations were always associated with cancer, whereas RAS mutations were mainly associated with cancer (74%) but also follicular adenoma (26%).

  • Distinguishing follicular variant of papillary carcinoma (FVPC) from follicular adenoma and follicular carcinoma can be difficult if nuclear features of papillary carcinoma are not well developed or only focally present.
  • We assessed interobserver and intraobserver agreement among 6 thyroid experts by using 15 cases in which original pathologists suspected FVPC.
  • Unanimous agreement on benign and malignant diagnoses was seen in 4 cases (27%) and majority agreement on malignancy in 8 cases (53%).
  • This considerable interobserver and intraobserver variability in the diagnosis of FVPC seems to result from lack of agreement on the minimal criteria needed to diagnose FVPC, even among experts.

  • [Title] Distant and lymph node metastases of thyroid nodules with no pathological evidence of malignancy: a limitation of pathological examination.
  • Among thyroid nodules arising from follicular cells, benign nodular goiter is thought not to metastasize to regional or distant organs.
  • However, we encountered five cases that were pathologically diagnosed as benign nodular goiter but showed metastasis.
  • The prevalence of benign nodular goiter showing metastasis was 0.17% (5 of 2978 patients).
  • On pathology, there were no detectable signs of carcinoma or follicular adenoma lesions.
  • Pathological diagnosis of thyroid nodules has limitations, and cases diagnosed as benign nodular goiter should still undergo careful follow-up.

  • [Title] Expression of cell-cycle regulators (cyclin D1, cyclin E, p27kip1, p57kip2) in papillary thyroid carcinoma.
  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the expression of cell-cycle regulators in papillary thyroid carcinoma in relation to lymph node metastatic features, and to determine whether immunohistochemical staining of cell-cycle markers can predict lymph node metastasis.
  • SUBJECTS AND METHODS: We reviewed the clinical records of patients who had undergone surgery for thyroid cancer and follicular adenoma between January 2005 and May 2008 at our clinic.
  • Among these cases, 92 patients, comprising 28 patients with follicular adenoma, 32 with papillary thyroid carcinoma without lymph node metastasis, and 32 with papillary thyroid carcinoma with lymph node metastasis, were selected randomly.
  • RESULTS: Tumor specimens from the papillary thyroid carcinoma group had significantly higher expression levels of cyclin D1 and cyclin E, and cytoplasmic expression of p57(kip2) than the other two groups (P < 0.05).
  • CONCLUSION: Our results suggest that immunohistochemistry of certain cell-cycle regulators may be helpful in the diagnosis of papillary thyroid carcinoma, and that cyclin D1 in particular may be a useful marker for evaluating lymph node metastasis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Measuring thyroglobulin autoantibodies by sensitive assay is important for assessing the presence of thyroid autoimmunity in areas with high iodine intake.
  • There is some debate over the clinical utility of measuring serum TgAb to assess the presence of thyroid autoimmunity.
  • To clarify the relationship between TgAb levels and thyroid autoimmunity, a histological examination of thyroid tissue was carried out on unselected living individuals with detectable serum TgAb.
  • 146 patients with a pathological diagnosis of follicular adenoma were selected as subjects.
  • A thyroid gland in which 0-1 FLI was observed in a few visual fields of low magnification (20 x 4) in thyroid tissue adjacent to a tumor was judged to be normal and a thyroid gland in which 2 or more FLI were observed was diagnosed as focal lymphocytic thyroiditis (FLT).
  • These results throw doubt on the Laboratory medicine practice guidelines published in Thyroid 2003, in which measuring TgAb is not usually necessary for detecting autoimmune thyroid disease.
  • At least measuring TgAb by sensitive assay is useful for assessing the presence of thyroid autoimmunity in Japan, an area with high iodine intakes.

  • [Title] Brain metastasis from thyroid adenomatous nodules or an encapsulated thyroid follicular tumor without capsular and vascular invasion: a case report.
  • Because benign-appearing thyroid nodules with metastasis are very rare, the author reports herein four thyroid nodules (one follicular adenoma and three adenomatous nodules) with brain metastasis.
  • A 75-year-old Japanese woman was admitted to our hospital because of thyroid mass.
  • Imaging modalities revealed four distinct nodules in the thyroid, and tumorectomies of all nodules were performed under the clinical diagnosis of benign thyroid nodules.
  • Microscopically, the largest tumor was an encapsulated follicular adenoma.
  • Thus, the largest tumor was diagnosed as follicular thyroid adenoma.
  • Therefore, a diagnosis of adenomatous nodules (goiters) was made.
  • However, six years later, the patient showed a brain metastasis of thyroid tumor composed of macrofollicles without cellular and nuclear atypia.
  • A diagnosis of metastatic follicular thyroid carcinoma was made.
  • The present case suggests that benign thyroid nodules can metastasize.

  • [Title] Expression of D2-40 in adjunct diagnosis of papillary thyroid carcinoma.
  • The clinical pathologic criteria for nuclear features of papillary thyroid carcinoma are subjective and sometimes cannot distinguish carcinoma from adenomatous goiter and follicular neoplasms.
  • Controls included 36 follicular adenomas, 36 follicular carcinomas, and 20 adenomatous goiters with papillary hyperplasia.
  • Cytoplasmic D2-40 immunoreactivity was present in 60 of 72 papillary carcinomas, 2 cases of follicular adenoma and 2 cases of follicular carcinoma, whereas no adenomatous goiter or normal thyroid glands contained positive epithelial cells.
  • Overexpression of D2-40 in papillary thyroid carcinomas thus has potential diagnostic utility in differentiating these tumors from their potential histologic mimics.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Fine-needle aspiration biopsy of benign thyroid nodules: an evidence-based review.
  • BACKGROUND: Since the development of fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) techniques, preoperative diagnosis and subsequent strategies for patient treatment have changed and evolved greatly.
  • This is true also for thyroid FNAB: the vast majority of thyroid nodules are benign, and hence do not necessarily require surgical treatment.
  • METHODS: A comprehensive Medline and Cochrane Library search was performed evaluating FNAB in the thyroid.
  • During the period 1992-1996 the accuracy of the clinical routine was evaluated by studying the outcomes of almost 4,000 FNAs of the thyroid.
  • The results were good, with only a few false-negative and false-positive results, but the problem of differentiating follicular adenoma from follicular carcinoma remained a significant problem.
  • CONCLUSION: A successful FNAB service rests on several factors, and the importance of clinical conferences between all specialists involved in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with thyroid disorders cannot be overemphasized.
  • These conferences lead to optimal interaction between the different specialists and, most important, substantial improvement in the clinical management of patients with thyroid disorders.

  • [Title] Qualitative and quantitative evaluation of solitary thyroid nodules with contrast-enhanced ultrasound: initial results.
  • To assess the feasibility of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) of the thyroid gland and to evaluate the potential of this method for characterising solitary thyroid nodules.18 patients affected by solitary thyroid nodules (size range: 0.6 to 3.6 cm; mean: 1.8 cm) confirmed by surgery (nine papillary carcinomas, four follicular carcinomas, three hyperplasias, one follicular adenoma and one Plummer's adenoma) underwent pulse inversion US at low M.I. (0.06 to 0.08) after i.v. injection of a 2.4-mL bolus of SonoVue.
  • Baseline echogenicity and the dynamic enhancement pattern of each nodule, in comparison with adjacent thyroid parenchyma, were assessed.
  • Benign nodules showed diffuse contrast enhancement, both homogeneous (3 out of 5) and heterogeneous (2 out of 5).
  • CEUS of thyroid gland is a feasible technique, but overlapping findings seem to limit the potential of this technique in the characterization of thyroid nodules.

  • [Title] Expression of vascular endothelial growth factor and presence of angiovascular cells in tissues from different thyroid disorders.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: We studied the localization of VEGF in human thyroid tissues to clarify its involvement in proliferative processes in a variety of thyroid disorders.
  • Immunohistochemical analysis using purified rabbit polyclonal anti-human VEGF or anti-human CD34 antibody and a streptavidin-biotin peroxidase complex detection system was performed on 58 tissue specimens from 53 patients with different thyroid disorders and 5 normal thyroid glands.
  • RESULTS: Vascular endothelial growth factor was not detected in normal thyroid follicular cells.
  • However, some thyroid tumor cells expressed VEGF in the cytoplasm (papillary carcinoma, 10/18; follicular carcinoma, 1/3; medullary carcinoma, 2/2; follicular adenoma, 3/11; adenomatous goiter, 2/4).
  • In benign follicular adenoma and adenomatous goiter, weak expression of VEGF was found in small areas of the tumor, whereas in malignant thyroid tumors, it was strongly expressed in many cells.
  • Angiovascular cells stained with CD34 antibody in tissues from different thyroid disorders reflected statistically significant differences in papillary carcinoma, follicular adenoma, and Graves' disease compared with normal thyroids, and such cells showed a trend toward increases in medullary carcinoma and adenomatous goiter.
  • In contrast, low vascularity was observed in anaplastic carcinoma, malignant lymphoma, and follicular carcinoma.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Because VEGF probably functions as a hypoxia-inducible angiogenic factor, overexpression of this mediator, concomitant with hypervascularity, may be induced more strongly in malignant thyroid tumors, which need more oxygen to proliferate, than in benign follicular tumors.
  • However, neither VEGF nor CD34 was expressed in anaplastic thyroid carcinoma, which is an extremely poorly differentiated malignant tumor.
  • CD34 but not VEGF was expressed in the hyperplastic thyroid tissues of Graves' disease composed of nontransformed cells.

  • [Title] The expression and role of serum response factor in papillary carcinoma of the thyroid.
  • SRF is involved in various cellular processes such as expression of immediate early and tissue-specific genes, cell proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis.
  • The expression of SRF in papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) and its role have not been investigated, forming the basis for this study.
  • Surgical specimens of 63 conventional PTCs along with 30 follicular adenoma, 30 adenomatous hyperplasia and 9 anaplastic carcinoma specimens were obtained from the surgical archives.
  • We also investigated the expression level of SRF and an SRF target gene, c-fos in fresh PTC tissues and thyroid cancer cell lines (NPA, FRO and ARO) by Western blot analyses.
  • In addition, we examined the role of SRF in PTC by overexpresion of SRF in the NPA cell line.
  • SRF was expressed in 50 of 63 cases of papillary carcinoma (79%), 18 of 30 cases of follicular adenoma (60%), 10 of 30 cases of nodular hyperplasia (33%) and 6 of 9 cases of anaplastic carcinoma (67%).
  • The expression level of SRF was significantly up-regulated in PTC (combined staining score of 5.21+/-0.43) and anaplastic carcinoma (5.67+/-1.45) compared to that of follicular adenoma (2.30+/-0.44) (P<0.001), or adenomatous goiter (1.13+/-0.28) (P<0.001).
  • Western blot analyses showed an increased expression of the spliced form of SRF protein and c-Fos protein in PTC as compared to non-tumor thyroid tissues.
  • Overexpression of SRF in papillary carcinoma cells enhanced cell motility and invasiveness.

  • [Title] Urokinase receptor, MMP-1 and MMP-9 are markers to differentiate prognosis, adenoma and carcinoma in thyroid malignancies.
  • The identification of high-risk patients with thyroid cancer and the preoperative differentiation between follicular adenoma and carcinoma remain clinically challenging.
  • Our study was conducted to analyze whether the quantification of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and urokinase-type plasminogen activator receptor (u-PAR) and transcription factor binding to the u-PAR promoter improve prognostic predictability and differential diagnosis of thyroid tumors.
  • Tumor/normal tissue was collected from 69 prospectively followed patients with thyroid carcinomas (papillary, medullary, follicular and anaplastic, PTC, MTC, FTC and ATC) or follicular adenomas.
  • Carcinomas except MTC expressed significantly more u-PAR/MMPs than adenomas/normal tissues, this being associated with advanced pT- or M-stages.
  • MMP-1 and MMP-9 were significantly higher in follicular carcinomas than in adenomas.
  • Poor survival in differentiated tumors was associated in trend (p = 0.07); poor survival of all patients (p = 0.043) and especially of patients with carcinomas of follicular origin (including ATC), but not medullary carcinomas, were significantly associated with high u-PAR-protein (p = 0.015).
  • Quantification of u-PAR is of prognostic relevance in thyroid carcinomas of non-c-cell origin, and u-PAR in part may be regulated nontranscriptionally in thyroid cancers.
  • This is the first study to suggest MMP-1/-9 as significant differentiation markers between follicular adenoma and follicular carcinoma.

  • The aim of the present study was to evaluate the remaining thyroid in patients with NG compared with those with follicular adenoma who underwent hemithyroidectomy.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients who underwent surgery for unilateral NG with over 10 years of postoperative follow-up and normal findings on ultrasonography of the contralateral thyroid lobe were selected to form the study group (SG).
  • Patients with follicular adenoma (with normal contralateral ultrasonography) who underwent hemithyroidectomy during the same period were selected to form the control group (CG).
  • Ultrasonographic nodules were found in the remaining thyroid lobe in 70% of patients in the SG and in 60% of those in the CG, with no statistically significant differences.
  • CONCLUSIONS: After hemithyroidectomy, both groups of patients developed nodules in the remaining thyroid lobe, with no statistically significant differences.

  • Although their recognition in the appropriate clinicopathological settings can aid in the diagnosis of some disease entities and tumor types, they can also be a source of error.
  • Although not totally specific, they are particularly common in papillary thyroid carcinoma, meningioma, and usual ductal hyperplasia of the breast and hence may aid in the diagnosis of these entities.
  • Nuclear pseudo-pseudoinclusions, which are artefactual bubbles in the nuclei that mimic nuclear pseudoinclusions or clear nuclei, can lead to misdiagnosis of follicular adenoma or hyperplastic nodule as papillary thyroid carcinoma.

  • [Title] Expression of FAS/APO 1/CD 95 in thyroid tumors.
  • Using immunohistochemistry, Fas/Apo-1 protein expression was investigated in thyroid cancers of 67 patients.
  • Thyroid biopsies from twenty eight patients with benign thyroid diseases were also examined.
  • The patients with thyroid cancer manifested a variable histology of the cancer, including 14 patients with follicular carcinoma, 48 with papillary carcinoma, 5 patients with medullary carcinoma.
  • The benign thyroid disease involved nodular goitre in 11 patients and follicular adenoma in other 17 patients.
  • The study aimed at examining immunohistochemical expression of Fas protein in order to determine whether the level of its expression correlated with histological diagnosis.
  • In individual patients Fas expression was more prevalent in thyroid carcinomas as compared to benign tumors (p=0.001).
  • A marked increase in Fas expression was found in papillary carcinoma, as compared to follicular and medullary carcinomas (p=0.02).
  • In conclusion, Fas was significantly more frequently overexpressed in thyroid cancer, indicating its role in thyroid tumorigenesis.

  • [Title] Human telomerase reverse transcriptase (hTERT) gene expression in thyroid carcinoma: diagnostic and prognostic role.
  • BACKGROUND: The catalytic component of telomerase, human telomerase reverse transcriptase (hTERT) has been found to be reactivated in immortalized cell lines and considered as a diagnostic marker for malignancy in different body tissues.
  • AIM OF WORK: Therefore we thought to determine whether hTERT gene detection could serve as an adjunct in the diagnosis of thyroid lesions together with evaluation of its prognostic value.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: The study included 50 cases of primary thyroid carcinoma including; 28 papillary carcinoma, 14 follicular carcinoma, 5 anaplastic carcinoma and 3 medullary carcinoma in addition to 5 cases of nodular hyperplasia and 5 cases of follicular adenoma.
  • RESULTS: RT-PCR of hTERT gene revealed expression in 43/50 (86%) malignant thyroid cases; including 25 papillary, 11 follicular, 4 anaplastic and 3 medullary carcinoma cases.
  • On the other hand, hTERT gene expression could not be detected in either hyperplastic nodule or in follicular adenoma cases.
  • The diagnostic validity of hTERT gene detection in benign and malignant thyroid lesions was in the form of 88.3% accuracy, 86% sensitivity, 100% specificity, 100% positive predictive value and 90% negative predictive value.
  • In thyroid carcinoma cases, hTERT gene detection was the most independent predictor of poor survival by multivariate survival analysis.
  • CONCLUSION: Detection of hTERT gene expression should be considered in confirmation of malignant thyroid lesions.
  • Moreover it could be one of the helpful tools in addition to grade, tumor type, and age to stratify patients with thyroid carcinoma into different prognostic categories.
  • Hence, inhibition of hTERT could be of use prospectively in the era of cancer therapy as an attractive weapon in thyroid carcinoma.

  • [Title] FNA cytology and frozen section examination in patients with follicular lesions of the thyroid gland.
  • Patients with solitary thyroid nodules should have fine-needle aspiration (FNA) cytology as the initial screening test, but the most of those referred to a surgeon usually undergo frozen section examination (FS).
  • The aim of this retrospective study was to assess the usefulness of FNA cytology and FS together in patients with a solitary thyroid nodule (TN).
  • Two-hundred and ten patients with a TN and FNA cytology suggesting follicular neoplasm underwent intraoperative FS and subsequent hemithyroidectomy or total thyroidectomy.
  • Final histology was follicular carcinoma in 23 (10.9%), follicular adenoma in 181 (86.2%), and hyperplasia in 6 (2.9%) patients.
  • No difference (p=NS) in age of the patients, and greatest diameter on the TN was found between groups.
  • Thus, in patients with smears suggesting follicular neoplasm, FS should be considered unnecessary because it does not affect the intraoperative decision making.

  • [Title] Metastatic signet ring cell carcinoma presenting as a thyroid nodule: report of a case with fine-needle aspiration cytology.
  • Metastatic carcinomas to the thyroid are quite rare in daily cytology practice.
  • However, when present they may produce a diagnostic dilemma, particularly when they share some morphologic similarities with primary thyroid lesions and when occurring in patients with occult malignant history.
  • Herein, we report a case of metastatic gastric signet ring cell carcinoma to the thyroid.
  • Our patient presented with an isolated right thyroid nodule, which was clinically considered to be a primary thyroid neoplasm.
  • Some tumor cells also had eccentric nuclei, creating a signet ring cell appearance.
  • These cytological features may be seen in cases of papillary thyroid carcinoma or signet ring cell follicular adenoma; however, the presence of the signet ring cells is unusual in primary thyroid lesions and raises the possibility of a metastatic lesion to the thyroid.
  • In our case, the tumor cells were positive for AE1/AE3, mucicarmine, and periodic acid-Schiff, but negative for thyroglobulin and thyroid transcription factor-1.
  • Biopsy of this mass showed an invasive signet ring cell carcinoma.
  • The purpose of our study is to discuss the cytological features and the differential diagnosis of this unusual thyroid FNA case.

  • [Title] Fine needle aspiration cytology of the thyroid: a cytohistologic study with evaluation of discordant cases.
  • OBJECTIVE: To analyze the diagnostic efficacy of fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) in the initial evaluation of thyroid nodules, with special emphasis on discrepant cytologic diagnoses.
  • STUDY DESIGN: A total of 192 thyroid fine needle aspirates with subsequent histopathologic follow-up were analyzed.
  • The cytologic diagnoses were divided into 4 categories: positive for malignancy, negative for malignancy, indeterminate for diagnosis and nondiagnostic.
  • The majority of these were "follicular neoplasms."
  • A false positive diagnosis was made in 1 case (0.5%), proven a follicular adenoma on histopathologic examination.
  • A false negative diagnosis was seen in 3.6% of cases.
  • CONCLUSION: FNAC is a safe, sensitive and specific technique in the initial evaluation of thyroid nodules.
  • A correct cytologic diagnosis can be achieved in a majority of cases, thus obviating the need for a second surgical intervention.

  • [Title] Evaluation of thyroid disease in kidney transplantation candidates: management and follow-up.
  • INTRODUCTION: Diagnosis of thyroid disease is fundamental in the evaluation of patients awaiting kidney transplantation.
  • We analyzed the incidence of thyroid disease in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and evaluated its evolution before and after kidney transplantation.
  • In all patients, serum concentrations of free triiodothyronine, free thyroxine, and thyroid-stimulating hormone were determined and a ultrasonography of the neck was performed.
  • Patients with thyroid cancer were considered eligible for kidney transplantation after at least 2 years since treatment.
  • RESULTS: One-hundred-four patients with ESRD (44%) had functional or morphologic changes in the thyroid gland.
  • Forty-one patients (17.4%) underwent fine-needle aspiration cytology; 3 demonstrated showed papillary carcinoma; 3, follicular adenomas; 8, uncertain cytologic lesions; and 27, a nodular goiter.
  • Six of 11 patients with thyroid cancer underwent transplantation: two patients underwent laterocervical lymph node dissection because of local recurrence within 2 years after successful transplantation; the other 4 patients are alive with a functioning graft.
  • Of the 184 transplant recipients, 10 underwent surgery to treat thyroid disease: 8 with multinodular goiter, 1 with micropapillary carcinoma, and 1 with follicular adenoma.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Thyroid diseases are common in patients with ESRD.
  • Early diagnosis and treatment significantly decreased morbidity and mortality in patients awaiting transplantation.

  • [Title] A multi-class predictor based on a probabilistic model: application to gene expression profiling-based diagnosis of thyroid tumors.
  • BACKGROUND: Although microscopic diagnosis has been playing the decisive role in cancer diagnostics, there have been cases in which it does not satisfy the clinical need.
  • Differential diagnosis of malignant and benign thyroid tissues is one such case, and supplementary diagnosis such as that by gene expression profile is expected.
  • RESULTS: With four thyroid tissue types, i.e., papillary carcinoma, follicular carcinoma, follicular adenoma, and normal thyroid, we performed gene expression profiling with adaptor-tagged competitive PCR, a high-throughput RT-PCR technique.
  • For differential diagnosis, we applied a novel multi-class predictor, introducing probabilistic outputs.
  • CONCLUSION: Molecular diagnosis of thyroid tissues is feasible by gene expression profiling, and the current level is promising towards the automatic diagnostic tool to complement the present medical procedures.

  • AIMS: Alpha-methylacyl-CoA racemase (AMACR), a mitochondrial and peroxisomal enzyme, is a valuable tool to confirm the diagnosis of prostate cancer, especially if combined with basal cell markers.
  • RESULTS: Microarray analysis revealed that tumours with prominent AMACR expression included adenocarcinomas of the prostate (72%), hepatocellular carcinomas (77%), papillary renal cell carcinomas (70%), and colorectal adenocarcinomas (71%).
  • AMACR expression was equally frequent in colorectal adenomas and carcinomas.
  • In the thyroid, AMACR expression was found in 42% of the follicular carcinomas but in only 16% of follicular adenomas.
  • However, a more detailed analysis on a thyroid tissue microarray did not confirm a significant difference of AMACR expression in follicular adenoma and carcinomas.

  • [Title] Emerin immunohistochemistry reveals diagnostic features of nuclear membrane arrangement in thyroid lesions.
  • AIMS: Objective appreciation of irregularities of the nuclear shape is a key parameter in the diagnosis of thyroid lesions, since foldings of the nuclear membrane (NM) featuring indentations, grooves and pseudoinclusions characterize papillary thyroid carcinomas (PTC).
  • METHODS AND RESULTS: Immunohistochemistry of the NM with emerin as well as three-dimensional reconstruction of the images (through deconvolution processing) performed on a series of 54 cases (processed following the tissue array procedure) revealed a uniform arrangement of the NM in non-neoplastic lesions (thyroiditis, microfollicular goitre, follicular adenoma) and normal thyroid as well as in follicular carcinoma.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Decoration of the NM represents an original approach to identify PTC nuclear shape, highlights new structural features and might be helpful in the differential diagnosis between so-called nuclear pseudoinclusions and artefactual 'bubbles'.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] An immunohistochemical study of p16(INK4a) expression in multistep thyroid tumourigenesis.
  • Normal human thyroid follicular epithelial cells exhibit a very low proliferative rate which in vitro is dramatically increased by RAS oncogene activation, resulting in clones displaying a phenotype consistent with that of a ras-induced follicular adenoma in vivo.
  • We therefore hypothesised that p16 expression would also increase in vivo in follicular adenomas, and further that escape from growth control in follicular cancers would be accompanied by loss of p16 expression.
  • This was tested using tissue microarrays, representing multiple stages of thyroid tumourigenesis.
  • Whereas the majority of normal thyroids showed no immunostaining, p16 protein was readily detectable in follicular adenomas.
  • Unexpectedly, however, p16 expression was also observed in follicular and papillary carcinomas.
  • We conclude that loss of p16 is not necessary for malignant transformation in thyroid follicular cells, but that it may form one of two or more events needed for progression to more aggressive forms of thyroid cancer.

  • Differential diagnosis of follicular adenoma (FA) and follicular carcinoma (FC) of the thyroid can be challenging in the routine practice of surgical pathology because the diagnosis of FC is strictly defined and identification depends on the presence of invasion of the capsule or blood vessels.
  • The present study investigated the diagnostic role of objective computerized nuclear morphometry in follicular neoplasms.
  • Thirty-six cases of thyroid FC and 36 cases of FA from patients who were matched by age and sex were studied.
  • In conclusion, computerized nuclear morphometry can be considered a helpful ancillary tool for differential diagnosis of FA and FC.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Accuracy and consistency of fine-needle aspiration biopsy in the diagnosis and management of solitary thyroid nodules.
  • BACKGROUND: Fine-needle aspiration biopsy has been well established as a diagnostic technique for selecting patients with thyroid nodules for surgical treatment, thereby reducing the number of unnecessary surgical procedures in cases of non-malignant tumors.
  • OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the sensitivity, specificity, accuracy, and positive and negative predictive values of FNAB in cases of a solitary thyroid nodule.
  • METHODS: The preoperative FNAB results in 170 patients who underwent thyroidectomy due to a solitary thyroid nodule were compared retrospectively with the final postoperative pathologic diagnoses.
  • RESULTS: In cases of a solitary thyroid nodule, FNAB had a sensitivity of 79%, specificity of 98.5%, accuracy of 87%, and positive and negative predictive values of 98.75% and 76.6% respectively.
  • All cases of papillary carcinoma diagnosed by FNAB proved to be malignant on final histology, while 8 of 27 cases of follicular adenoma detected by preoperative FNAB were shown to be malignant on final evaluation of the surgical specimen.
  • It proved to be cost-effective and is recommended as the first tool in the diagnostic workup in patients with thyroid nodules.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Lymphatic vessel density and VEGF-C expression are significantly different among benign and malignant thyroid lesions.
  • Thyroid cancer is the most frequent endocrine neoplasia worldwide.
  • In order to evaluate the value of LVD in benign and malignant thyroid lesions, we analyzed 110 thyroidectomy specimens using D2-40, a specific marker for lymphatic vessels and vascular endothelial growth factor C (VEGF-C), the most potent molecule of lymphatic proliferation.
  • LVD was significantly different between papillary and follicular carcinomas in total (p = 0.045) and peritumoral area (p = 0.042).
  • Follicular adenoma and follicular carcinoma showed an important difference of intra- (p = 0.019) and peritumoral (p = 0.033) LVD.
  • VEGF-C was more markedly expressed in malignancies than in benign lesions (p = 0.0001).
  • Almost all cancers with high positive VEGF-C expression also exhibited increased peritumoral LVD (p = 0.049) when compared with the benign lesions.
  • Indeed, the high peritumoral LVD of malignant thyroid lesions is an important finding for surgery planning and supports the practice of total thyroidectomy in malignant thyroid neoplasm's since the lymphatic peritumoral vessels definitely are an escape path for tumor cells.

  • [Title] Sonography and fine-needle aspiration biopsy in the diagnosis of benign versus malignant nodules in patients with autoimmune thyroiditis.
  • PURPOSE: To correlate sonographic (US) characteristics and results of fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) of thyroid nodules in autoimmune thyroiditis (AT) with surgical pathological findings.
  • RESULT: Twenty-four of the 40 nodules were malignant, including 20 papillary carcinomas, 3 follicular carcinomas, and 1 medullary carcinoma.
  • Of the 16 benign nodules, 8 were nodular hyperplasia, 6 lymphocytic thyroiditis, and 1 each follicular adenoma and Hürthle cell adenoma.
  • The only US parameter that was significant in malignant vs. benign nodules was the presence of poorly defined margins.
  • Based on preoperative cytology, 22 of the 23 malignant nodules were correctly diagnosed, and 10 of the 14 benign nodules were correctly identified.
  • CONCLUSION: No single US parameter can predict thyroid malignancy in patients with AT.

  • [Title] Immunohistochemical analysis of thyroid-specific transcription factors in thyroid tumors.
  • Thyroid transcription factor 1 (TTF1), thyroid transcription factor 2 (TTF2) and paired box gene 8 (Pax8) are demonstrated to play a crucial role for the differentiation and organogenesis of thyroid follicular cells.
  • Their roles in thyroid carcinogenesis are not very clear.
  • Because dedifferentiation is a common process in thyroid carcinogenesis, thyroid-specific transcription factors seem also to be involving in thyroid carcinogenesis.
  • The purpose of the present paper was to investigate their expression in a broad spectrum of follicular cell tumors in different degrees of differentiation, from well-differentiated benign follicular adenoma to anaplastic carcinoma.
  • Medullary (C cell) carcinoma was also included in the investigation.
  • Results of immunohistochemical staining showed that nuclear localization of these transcription factors was gradually decreased corresponding to the progressive dedifferentiation of thyroid tumors.
  • In conclusion, abnormal expression of TTF1, TTF2 and Pax8 was closely related to thyroid tumorigenesis.

  • The differential diagnosis of a follicular lesion/neoplasm in thyroid FNA specimens includes hyperplastic/adenomatoid nodule, follicular adenoma and carcinoma, and follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma.
  • In our laboratory we separate follicular lesions of thyroid into hyperplastic/adenomatoid nodule (HN), follicular neoplasm (FON) and follicular derived neoplasm with focal nuclear features suspicious for papillary thyroid carcinoma (FDN).
  • All cases were evaluated for histologic diagnosis, age, sex and size of the nodule.
  • No statistically significant relationship was noted between the sizes of the nodules and benign vs. malignant diagnosis.
  • According to this study it is important to divide follicular patterned lesions of thyroid into FON and FDN in the cytology specimens due to significantly different risk of malignancy (22% vs. 72%).

  • One (5.9%) of the 17 follicular carcinomas and three (7.8%) of the 38 papillary carcinomas were regarded as positive for S100A9, but the positive cell areas always accounted for 5% or less.
  • Among them, the positive cell area was greater than 5% in 16 (84.2%), and greater than 25% in six (31.6%) cases.
  • It is therefore suggested that S100A4 protein plays an important role in thyroid carcinoma dedifferentiation, and can be considered a novel characteristic of undifferentiated carcinoma.

  • [Title] Proteomic identification of new biomarkers and application in thyroid cytology.
  • OBJECTIVE: To validate proteins identified by proteomics as potentially usable markers in thyroid pathology.
  • STUDY DESIGN: Frozen sections of thyroid tumors were manually micro-dissected and proteins extracted.
  • Validation of candidates for tumor markers (galectin-1, galectin-3, S100C and voltage-dependent anion channel 1 [VDAC1]) was done by immunohistochemistry in 21 cell blocks from fine needle aspiration biopsies (FNAB) and corresponding histology specimens (13 cases).
  • RESULTS: Galectin-3 was negative in benign lesions and positive in FNAB from papillary carcinoma (5 of 5), follicular variant of papillary carcinoma (1 of 4) and follicular carcinoma (1 of 2).
  • S100C was positive in some benign lesions: hyperplasia (2 of 4), goiter (1 of 3) and follicular adenoma (1 of 3), with predominantly nuclear pattern of staining.
  • Galectin-1 was negative in benign lesions and positive in follicular carcinoma (1 of 2), papillary carcinoma (2 of 5) and follicular variant of papillary carcinoma (1 of 4).
  • VDAC1 was detected in benign and malignant lesions, showing a strong positivity in follicular carcinomas.
  • CONCLUSION: Immunohistochemical validation of potential markers is a crucial step before clinical application in diagnosis.
  • Galectin-3, galectin-1 and S100C can be used to help in discriminating benign and malignant thyroid lesions.

  • [Title] Distinct regulation of intrinsic apoptosis in benign and malignant thyroid tumours.
  • Aberrations in the control of apoptosis represent a central feature of thyroid carcinogenesis.
  • However, little is known about the regulation of components of the intrinsic apoptosis pathway in the thyroid.
  • Using a real-time PCR approach we investigated the mRNA expression levels of Caspase3, Caspase3 s, xIAP, Bad, and beta-actin in a panel of 79 thyroid tumours.
  • Thus, malignant thyroid tumours revealed a significant downregulation of the proapoptotic Bad.
  • In contrast Caspase3 s, an alternative splice variant of Caspase3 with anti-apoptotic characteristics, was upregulated in follicular and anaplastic cancers.
  • Moreover, papillary thyroid tumours revealed a significant upregulation of Caspase3 mRNA.
  • On the post-translational level, thyroid malignancies featured an impairment in the activation of Caspase3, since activated Caspase3 accumulated exclusively in the cytoplasm of thyroid cancer cells, whereas follicular adenoma and normal thyroid tissues showed no cytoplasmatic but nuclear Caspase3 distribution.
  • Further knowledge on apoptosis-deregulation during thyroid carcinogenesis might confer diagnostic and therapeutic benefits in the management of thyroid cancer.

  • [Title] BRAF mutation in solid cell nest hyperplasia associated with papillary thyroid carcinoma. A precursor lesion?
  • We describe a case of solid cell nest hyperplasia associated with papillary thyroid carcinoma in a 48-year-old man with goiter.
  • The entire gland was examined; in 1 section, the cells of 1 solid cell nest were in close contact with a follicular variant of papillary microcarcinoma.
  • A second follicular variant of papillary microcarcinoma, 1 follicular adenoma, hyperplastic nodules, and some lymphoid aggregates were also found.
  • After microdissection, the same BRAF(V600E) mutation was found both in a pool of 5 solid cell nests and in the adjacent papillary microcarcinoma.
  • BRAF(V600E) mutation and the previously unreported BRAF(G593D) mutation along with p.G606G silent change were found in the second papillary microcarcinoma, but no mutations were detected in the follicular adenoma or in the 2 other pools of solid cell nests screened for BRAF gene mutations.
  • These findings support a histogenetic link between the main cells of solid cell nests and papillary thyroid carcinoma, and suggest solid cell nest hyperplasia as a precursor lesion of papillary thyroid carcinoma.

  • [Title] The BRAF mutation is not associated with poor prognostic factors in Korean patients with conventional papillary thyroid microcarcinoma.
  • BACKGROUND: The BRAF(V600E) mutation, the most common genetic alteration reported in papillary thyroid carcinoma, has been associated with poor prognostic factors.
  • AIM: To determine whether the presence of the BRAF(V600E) mutation is associated with poor prognosis in Korean patients with conventional papillary thyroid microcarcinoma (micro-PTC).
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: DNA was extracted from paraffin-embedded thyroid tumour specimens taken from 60 patients with conventional micro-PTC, as well as from nine patients with follicular variant papillary carcinoma, six with nodular hyperplasia, four with follicular carcinoma (including one with Hürthle cell carcinoma), four with follicular adenoma (including two with Hürthle cell adenoma) and one each with medullary carcinoma, poorly differentiated carcinoma and anaplastic carcinoma.
  • RESULTS: The BRAF(V600E) mutation was detected in tumour samples from 31 of 60 conventional micro-PTC patients (52%), but was not detected in patients with other types of thyroid tumours.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Because thyrolipoma (adenolipoma of thyroid) and thyrolipomatosis (diffuse lipomatosis of thyroid) are distinctively rare conditions with only few cases reported in the literature, we are reporting 5 additional cases.
  • All the 5 patients were adult females, with ages from 38 to 79 years, who presented with thyroid masses.
  • Four of the patients had normal thyroid function tests and one had mild hypothyroidism.
  • The thyroid specimens showed either circumscribed yellow-tan masses (cases 1, 2, and 3) or diffuse yellow-brown discoloration (cases 4 and 5).
  • Histologic examination revealed abundant mature fat infiltrating the affected thyroid tissue in 3 distinct patterns:.
  • (1) fat infiltration limited to follicular adenomas (thyrolipoma);.
  • (2) fat diffusely infiltrating throughout the thyroid gland (thyrolipomatosis); or (3) fat infiltration involving both follicular adenoma and their surrounding thyroid tissue.
  • Because of the rarity of thyroid fat-containing lesions, confusion in differential diagnosis may occasionally occur.
  • In addition, a papillary thyroid carcinoma was also identified in one case of thyrolipomatosis.
