A comparison between unifocal papillary thyroid microcarcinoma with noninvasive follicular thyroid neoplasm with papillary-like nuclear features and other patterns: A retrospective clinicopathological study.
Conclusion: Contrary to the results of the previous studies, the results of our study did not confirm the indolent course of mPTC with NIFTP. However, metastasis was detected both at the time of diagnosis and during the postoperative period. The malignancy potential of these tumors may not be low. Therefore, more clinicopathological and molecular studies are needed to determine the biological behavior of mPTC cases with different histology.
