abstract

  • PDTC defined on the basis of mitosis and necrosis constitutes a group of tumors that is more aggressive and homogeneous than PDTC defined by growth pattern. Within this group of patients, microstaging (tumor size, the extent of capsular invasion, and, especially, extrathyroid extension), and not growth pattern or cell type, is able to stratify patients into different prognostic categories. RAI uptake occurs in a significant number of patients with PDTC.
