Radioactive iodine-refractory differentiated thyroid cancer: unmet needs and future directions.

Expert Rev Endocrinol Metab 2012 Sep;7(5):541-554

f Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA, USA.

Approximately 90% of thyroid cancers are differentiated (DTCs) and have papillary, follicular or Hürthle cell morphology. Although treatment with surgery and radioactive iodine (I-131; RAI), as appropriate, is associated with significant cure rates and survival benefits, clonal disease progression with development of refractoriness to RAI poses a major therapeutic challenge in about 15% of patients. Traditional chemotherapeutic agents are relatively ineffective and are associated with significant toxicities. Read More

Outcome and molecular characteristics of non-invasive encapsulated follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma with oncocytic features.

Endocrine 2019 Jan 28. Epub 2019 Jan 28.

Department of Surgery, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer center, New York, NY, USA.

Purpose: In 2016, non-invasive encapsulated follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma (NI-EFVPTC) was renamed as noninvasive thyroid follicular neoplasm with papillary-like nuclear features (NIFTP). However, as the study cohort did not mention tumors with oncocytic features, such lesions are still labeled by some as FVPTC. It is therefore crucial to evaluate the outcome and molecular profile of oncocytic NI-EFVPTC. Read More

Clear Cell Variant of a Follicular Thyroid Tumor With Uncertain Malignant Potential: A Case Report.

Int J Surg Pathol 2018 Oct 29:1066896918809490. Epub 2018 Oct 29.

1 Department of Pathology and Cytology, Karolinska University Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden.

Follicular neoplasms of the thyroid gland are most often characterized by follicular-patterned thyrocytes with a neutrally stained cytoplasm, while a minority of cases present with oncocytic differentiation (Hürthle cell tumors). Exceedingly rare variants with a clear cell phenotype have also been reported, both as clear cell follicular thyroid adenomas (ccFTAs) and clear cell follicular carcinomas (ccFTCs). We present a patient with a 30-mm lesion in the thyroid isthmus in which the preoperative cytology proposed a follicular tumor. Read More

Cytologic Diagnosis of Oncocytic Neoplasms of the Thyroid Gland: The Importance of the Clinical Scenario.

Appl Immunohistochem Mol Morphol 2018 Oct 24. Epub 2018 Oct 24.

Division of Anatomic Pathology and Histology, Catholic University of Sacred Heart, Foundation "A. Gemelli" University Hospital.

It is a diagnostic challenge to differentiate benign and malignant thyroid neoplasms made up of Hürthle (or oncocytic) cells on cytologic material. They are large, polygonal cells with marked eosinophilic, granular cytoplasm reflective of overly abundant mitochondria. These cells commonly occur in nodular goiters and dominant adenomatous or hyperplastic nodules though they may also be the predominant component of neoplastic lesions. Read More

Clinically Relevant Prognostic Parameters in Differentiated Thyroid Carcinoma.

Endocr Pathol 2018 Dec;29(4):357-364

Department of Pathology, Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School, 75 Francis Street, Boston, MA, 02115, USA.

Although differentiated thyroid carcinomas typically pursue an indolent clinical course, it is important to identify the subset of tumors that are most likely to behave aggressively so that patients with these tumors are counseled and treated appropriately. Extent of disease is fundamental to the prognostication for differentiated thyroid carcinoma; however, there are additional histologic features of the tumor separate from extent of disease that have been shown to affect clinical course. This review will start with a discussion of aggressive variants of papillary thyroid carcinoma, move to the prognostic significance of vascular invasion in follicular thyroid carcinoma, and finish with a discussion of Hürthle cell carcinoma, with an emphasis on why it is not considered a subtype of follicular thyroid carcinoma in the 2017 WHO Classification of Tumors of Endocrine Organs.

Completion thyroidectomy via the transoral endoscopic vestibular approach.

Gland Surg 2018 Aug;7(Suppl 1):S77-S79

Division of Head and Neck Endocrine Surgery, Department of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, USA.

The safety and efficacy of the transoral endoscopic thyroidectomy vestibular approach (TOETVA) continues to be verified with the growing literature in regards to the procedure. While early cases were thyroid lobectomies performed for benign disease, the indications for TOETVA have now expanded to include total thyroidectomy for select small well-differentiated thyroid cancers (DTCs). Oncologic efficacy of this procedure remains unproven at this time, as the procedure was described only recently. Read More

New York Head & Neck Institute, Lenox Hill Hospital, New York, NY, USA.

Hürthle cell predominant thyroid nodules often confound the diagnostic utility of fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) with cytology often interpreted as a Hürthle cell lesion with an indeterminate risk of malignancy, Bethesda category (BC) III or IV. Molecular diagnostics for Hürthle cell predominant nodules has also been disappointing in further defining the risk of malignancy.

Preoperative Cytologic Diagnosis of Warthin-like Variant of Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma.

J Pathol Transl Med 2018 Mar 12;52(2):105-109. Epub 2018 Feb 12.

Department of Pathology, Gangnam Severance Hospital, Yonsei University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Background: Warthin-like variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma (WLV-PTC) is a relatively rare variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma with favorable prognosis. However, preoperative diagnosis using fine-needle aspiration (FNA) specimens is challenging especially with lymphocytic thyroiditis characterized by Hürthle cells and lymphocytic background. To determine a helpful cytological differential point, we compared WLV-PTC FNA findings with conventional papillary thyroid carcinoma with lymphocytic thyroiditis (PTC-LT) and conventional papillary thyroid carcinoma without lymphocytic thyroiditis (PTC) regarding infiltrating inflammatory cells and their distribution.
