BackgroundVascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) has been implicated in angiogenesis of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). As VEGF expression is increased in PTC and even in lymphocytic thyroiditis (LT), we hypothesized that VEGF may play a role in the development of PTC in patients with LT. In order to find an association between VEGF and these disorders, we examined both the tumoral and adjacent tissues of PTC patients with and without LT.<p cla...
