abstract

  • The first case of thyroid follicular carcinoma in the exposed Belarussian children was diagnosed after a latent period of 6.5 years, as compared with 4 years of minimal latency for post-Chernobyl papillary carcinomas. Among benign thyroid lesions, cystic adenomatoid nodules of papillary type and diffuse hyperplasia with cellular atypia and nodularity seem to be commonly associated with radiation exposure to the thyroid gland.
