OBJECTIVE: To investigate the correlation of microRNA-155 (miR-155) expression with clinicopathological features of patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) and explore the value of miR-155 in prognostic assessment of PTC. METHODS: We collected 86 pairs of fresh PTC and adjacent tissues to examine the expression of miR-155 using fluorescent quantitative PCR. miR-155 expressions in the tissues were analyzed in relation to the clinicopathological features of the patients...

About one third of focal thyroid uptakes in a fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computerized tomography (PET/CT) study are malignant, the most frequent histological type being papillary carcinoma. Metastases to the thyroid account for approximately 7.5% of thyroid malignancies and come mainly from kidney, lung, head and neck, and breast cancers. We report the case of a 64-year-old woman presenting a fast growing thyroid nodule whose primitive or metastatic origin was not obvious, for which (18)F-FDG PET/CT helped in the diagnostic process and in the later management of the patient...

OBJECTIVE: Papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) may often appear as multifocal disease. Few studies demonstrated a higher rate of central compartment lymph node metastasis (CCLNM) in multifocal PTC patients. Therefore, the effect of different histological subtypes of multifocal PTC on CCLNM is another subject for further examination. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the rate of central lymph node positivity in multifocal PTC as compared to unifocal disease, and to identify the role of different histologic subtypes of PTC on central neck lymph node positivity...

Extensive research is dedicated to understanding if sporadic and familial papillary thyroid carcinoma are distinct biological entities. We have previously demonstrated that familial papillary thyroid cancer (fPTC) cells exhibit short relative telomere length (RTL) in both blood and tissues and that these features may be associated with chromosome instability. Here, we investigated the frequency of HER2 (Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor 2) amplification, and other recently reported genetic alterations in sporadic PTC (sPTC) and fPTC, and assessed correlations with RTL and BRAF mutational status...

PURPOSE: The da Vinci surgical robot system was developed to overcome the weaknesses of endoscopic surgery. However, whether robotic surgery is superior to endoscopic surgery remains uncertain. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to compare the surgical and oncologic outcomes between endoscopic and robotic thyroidectomy using bilateral axillo-breast approach (BABA). METHODS: Between January 2008 and June 2015, papillary thyroid carcinoma patients who underwent thyroidectomy with central neck dissection using endoscopic (n = 480) or robotic (n = 705) BABA were primarily reviewed...

Papillary thyroid carcinoma is a common malignancy to affect the thyroid and is typified by a nonaggressive nature and low rates of mortality. In contrast, anaplastic thyroid carcinoma is the most aggressive thyroid malignancy with a mortality rate of nearly 90% and survival typically of only six months after the diagnosis is made. The transformation of papillary thyroid carcinoma to anaplastic thyroid carcinoma is well documented in the literature but is uncommon and in most instances is reported as a case report or small series only...

In recent years, there are numerous reports indicating the presence of familial papillary carcinoma. Unfortunately, no genetic defect can be linked directly to the disease. In this study, we set the goal to make a retrospective analysis of the cases with papillary carcinoma in the Department of Endocrine Surgery for the past 10 years, to compare the characteristics of sporadic and familial forms of the disease and to find families with hereditary papillary carcinoma. The study included 810 patients treated for thyroid cancer in the Department of Endocrine Surgery, USBALE "Acad...

Diagnosis of cystic papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) lymph node metastasis at head neck region can be a challenge in the absence of known PTC history. The congenital cystic lesions of head neck, especially thyroglossal duct cyst (TGDC) and branchial cleft cyst (BCC), are major differential diagnoses in this clinicopathological scenario. The location of cyst and morphology of lining epithelium are critical clues for reaching correct diagnosis. However it is not uncommon that the flattened bland epithelial lining can be seen in both cystic metastases and congenital cystic lesions...

BACKGROUND: Because one of the major sites for metastasis of thyroid cancers is the lung, studying the pattern of pulmonary metastasis may provide useful information for the effective treatment of these patients. In this study, by assessing the metastasis pattern, we aimed to identify the factors that may affect prognosis and response to treatment in patients with differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC) with pulmonary metastasis. METHODS: This retrospective study included 75 patients with DTC with pulmonary metastasis who were referred to our nuclear medicine section over a period of 10 years...

BACKGROUND: For the N1b papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) patients, modified radical neck dissection (MRND) encompassing levels II - V is generally recommended. However, routine level V dissection is controversial because of the low incidence of metastasis/recurrence in level V and the increased morbidities associated with level V dissection. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 646 N1b PTC patients who underwent unilateral MRND between January 1997 and June 2015...

BACKGROUND: A recent concept was proposed that the non-invasive encapsulated follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma (EFVPTC) reclassified as "non-invasive follicular thyroid neoplasm with papillary-like nuclear features (NIFTP) is benign. Our aim was to identify the differences between NIFTP and non-NIFTP preoperatively. METHODS: This retrospective study included a total of 208 patients with 208 FVPTCs that were surgically confirmed at 3 university hospitals from 2008 through 2014...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to elucidate the cytological characteristics and the diagnostic usefulness of intraoperative cytology (IOC) for papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). In addition, using decision tree analysis, effective features for accurate cytological diagnosis were sought. METHODS: We investigated cellularity, cytological features and diagnosis based on the Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology in IOC of 240 conventional PTCs. The cytological features were evaluated in terms of nuclear score with nuclear features, and additional figures such as presence of swirling sheets, psammoma bodies, and multinucleated giant cells...

BACKGROUND: Papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC), occurs mostly in women and sex hormones may play a role in the pathogenesis and clinical course. The objective of this study was to determine the status and prevalence of estrogen and progesterone receptors in PTC with regard to age, gender, tumor size and lymph node involvement. METHODS: Immunohistochemical stains were performed on 92 tissue blocks of PTC for estrogen receptor (ER) and progesterone receptor (PR) expression in tumor cells...

BACKGROUND: Cystic papillary thyroid carcinoma (CPTC) is a variant of papillary carcinoma that has many mimickers in cytological grounds. AIM: To study the cytomorphologic features of CPTC and compare them to those of other cystic thyroid lesions using fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC). We also aimed to identify the cytomorphologic features that distinguish CPTC from other cystic thyroid lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Seventy-three cases of CPTC were included in the study...

CONTEXT: Yes-associated protein-1 (YAP-1) is a player of the Hippo pathway and is involved in regulating cell proliferation. YAP-1 is overexpressed in papillary and anaplastic thyroid cancers. However, a correlation between YAP-1 expression and outcome in thyroid carcinoma has not been conclusively demonstrated. OBJECTIVE: This study was designed to clarify whether YAP-1 may be considered a marker of worse prognosis and outcome in thyroid cancer. DESIGN: A large series of cases of thyroid cancer with a long follow-up were investigated for YAP-1 expression...
