Other diagnosis observed are thyroiditis [7 (11.6%) cases], follicular adenoma [3 (5%) cases], thyroglossal cyst [2 (3.3%) cases], benign cystic lesion [1 (1.6%) case], hyalinizing trabecular tumor [1 (1.6%) case].
Thyroid nodules showing follicular morphologic features include adenomatous nodule, follicular adenoma (FA), follicular carcinoma (FC), and follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma (FVPTC) [1].
In terms of cytohistological correlation, histopathology confirmed, among others, 36 (61.0%) cases as adenomatous colloid goiter, 7 (11.8%) as follicular adenoma, and 9 (15.2%) as papillary carcinoma (Table-1).
Postoperative histopathology showed that colloid goiter, malignancy, and follicular adenoma were the most common findings in the transient group, while malignancy and Hashimoto thyroiditis were the most common findings in the prolonged group.
Other benign lesions were follicular adenoma and lymphocytic thyroiditis observed in 38 (27.1%) and 3 (2%) patients respectively.
In each 7 of 224 papillary thyroid carcinoma patients, concomitant Hurthle cell adenoma and follicular adenoma were present.
In the present study, among neoplastic cases follicular adenoma (8 cases - 50%) was found to be the most common followed by papillary carcinoma (4 cases - 25%), (Figure 2, 3) follicular carcinoma (3 cases - 18.75%) and Medullary carcinoma (1 case - 6.25%) (Figure 4).
Rare cases of follicular adenoma carrying PPARG rearrangements have been reported.
Ten cases reported as follicular neoplasm on cytology were available for histopathology diagnosis: 6 cases diagnosed as follicular adenoma and 4 cases diagnosed as follicular carcinoma.
Of the benign lesions, 13 cases were goiter, 1 case was a follicular adenoma, 4 cases were granulomatous thyroiditis, and 2 cases were Hashimoto's thyroiditis.
scanty sample, loss of histological architecture and inability to distinguish follicular adenoma from a well-differentiated follicular carcinoma.
