Incidental thyroid carcinoma includes thyroid carcinomas detected after surgery in patients whose thyroid has been correctly studied with no data of malignancy. Lately, the widely spread use of image techniques and thorough search of thyroid nodule complains, have lead to a growing number of thyroid carcinomas. But still there are some of these incidentally discovered after thyroidectomy.We report 98 cases of thyroid carcinomas incidentally found from a ...

Fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) remains the mainstay in the study of thyroid nodules, with cytologic adequate specimens in almost 85% of cases in expert hands. Apart from the limitation of inadequate samples, there are false negative diagnoses in some cases, particularly in larger (>3 cm) nodules. Considering this, Large-needle biopsy (LNB) could be useful to improve diagnostic precision. We review the pathology reports (PR) of more than 100 patients operated since ...

Introduction: Optimization of iodine intake aims to prevent the irreversible damage that iodine deficiency (ID) can cause in the central nervous system during its development, as well as thyroid disorders that can be induced by both ID and excessive micronutrient intake. The Spanish legal regulation stipulates that iodized salt (IS) must contain 60 mg of iodine per kg of salt (60 ppm), allowing a tolerance of ±15%. The aim of this study is to address the iodine content of...
