    Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs), which are important functional regulators in cancer, have received increased attention in recent years. In this study, next-generation sequencing technology was used to identify aberrantly expressed lncRNAs in follicular thyroid carcinoma (FTC). The long non-coding RNA-HLA complex P5 (HCP5) was found to be overexpressed in FTC. Read More

    Ubiquitin Immunostaining in Thyroid Neoplasms Marks True Intranuclear Cytoplasmic Pseudoinclusions and May Help Differentiate Papillary Carcinoma from NIFTP.

    Papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is defined by an invasive growth pattern and classic nuclear features: enlarged, grooved, overlapping nuclei with chromatin clearing and intranuclear cytoplasmic pseudoinclusions (INCP). True INCPs are characteristic of PTC, but may infrequently be seen in noninvasive follicular thyroid neoplasms with papillary-like nuclear features (NIFTP). Nuclear abnormalities that mimic INCP ("pseudo-pseudoinclusions") are common in a variety of thyroid lesions. Read More

    Tumour growth rate of follicular thyroid carcinoma is not different from that of follicular adenoma.

    Objective: Distinguishing malignancy from benign thyroid nodule has always been challenging, especially in follicular lesions. Thyroid nodules with small size and indeterminate cytology do not lead to immediate surgery. We tried to evaluate whether tumour size and tumour growth rate can distinguish follicular thyroid carcinoma (FTC) from follicular adenoma (FA). Read More

    Identification of metastatic papillary thyroid carcinoma in FNA specimens using thyroid peroxidase immunohistochemistry.

    Histopathology Department, Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology, Brisbane, Qld, Australia.
    Introduction: We evaluated immunohistochemical staining for thyroid peroxidase (TPO), a glycoprotein found in the apical plasma membrane of thyroid follicular cells, as a marker for metastatic PTC in FNA samples and compared results with thyroglobulin (Tg) and thyroid transcription factor 1 (TTF1) staining.

    Methods: Cell block sections prepared from 100 FNA specimens were stained with a rabbit monoclonal antibody to TPO (EP159). The FNAs included 64 metastatic malignancies from non-thyroid primary sites, including 18 lung, and 36 cases of thyroid tumours (29 PTC, six cases of medullary thyroid carcinoma and one thyroid anaplastic carcinoma).

    An International Interobserver Variability Reporting of the Nuclear Scoring Criteria to Diagnose Noninvasive Follicular Thyroid Neoplasm with Papillary-Like Nuclear Features: a Validation Study.
    Endocr Pathol 2018 Mar 6. Epub 2018 Mar 6.
    Department of Pathology, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA, USA.
    The aim of the study was to assess interobserver variation in reporting nuclear features of encapsulated follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma, newly reclassified as noninvasive follicular thyroid neoplasm with papillary-like nuclear features (NIFTP), based on a proposed standardized scoring system. An education module was individually reviewed as a pre-evaluation teaching guide of the specific features of classical papillary carcinoma, the specific inclusion and exclusion features for the diagnosis of NIFTP, and a catalog of the standardized scoring system of the nuclear features of papillary carcinoma used to reach this diagnosis. Participants subsequently reviewed 30 cases of thyroid lesions previously scored by members of the Endocrine Pathology Society Working Group for the Re-evaluation of the Encapsulated Follicular Variant of Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma.

    Department of Thyroid and Breast Surgery, Zhongnan Hospital of Wuhan University, 169 Donghu Road, Wuhan, Hubei, 430071, China.
    Background: The incidence of thyroid cancer in black Americans is significantly lower than that in white Americans, and the impact of race on the prognosis of thyroid cancer remains controversial. The purpose of this study was to determine the risk factors for survival in black and white patients and to compare the survival of differentiated thyroid carcinoma subtypes between these two races. We further investigated the association of lymph node and distant metastases with races. Read More
