abstract

  • FVPC cannot be excluded completely from follicular neoplasms by FNA because of the patchy distribution of papillary carcinoma nuclei in the encapsulated variant. Widely invasive FC still exists and may cause considerable morbidity in patients as young as the third decade of life. It is the opinion of the authors that cytopathologists should continue reporting follicular neoplasms in FNA of the thyroid.
