All patients who had a definitive diagnosis of PTCs underwent total thyroidectomy ( n = 42) or lobectomy with isthmectomy ( n = 124).
Excluded were patients who underwent lobectomy [+ or -] isthmectomy, subtotal thyroidectomy, cervical lymph node dissection or reoperation procedures, patients with coexisting parathyroid pathology, chronic renal impairment and other conditions affecting calcium metabolism, and patients on oral calcium supplementation.
Because the patient had obstructive symptoms and follicular lesion on FNAB, right hemithyroidectomy and isthmectomy was done and histopathology findings were compatible with colloid goiter.
