Thyroglobulin measurements in fine-needle aspiration cytology of lymph nodes in patients after thyroidectomy because of differentiated thyroid cancer

Musial Emilia , Galczynski Jacek , Bakula-Zalewska Elwira , Dedecjus Marek

Introduction: Approximately 5–20% patients treated for differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC) develop metastases to the neck lymph nodes. Ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) is a routinely used method in the examination of suspicious lymph nodes. The measurement of thyroglobulin (Tg) levels in needle washout fluids (FNAB-Tg) has been reported to increase the diagnostic accuracy of FNAB.Description of methods/designs: A total of 10...

Introduction: Multifocal papillary thyroid microcarcinama (PTmC) has been considered as more aggressive than the unifocal one.Aim of the study: This paper aims to compare this two groups considering histopatological sign of aggressivity, presence of inflammation and radioiodine uptake.Materials and methods: The analysis concerned 81 patient with microcarcinoma (PTmC) selected from group of 961 (8%) diagnosed and treated in conventi...
