    Objective: The clinical importance of thyroid nodules is the need to exclude thyroid malignancy, and fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) is the current gold standard for the evaluation of thyroid nodules. The main limitation of FNAB is follicular neoplasm. Follicular thyroid carcinoma differentiates less frequently with FNAB from microfollicular or cellular adenomas. Serum TSH is introduced recently as a useful marker for predicting malignancy in a thyroid nodule. The main aim of our study was the evaluation of this correlation in patients with thyroid nodule with cytology reports of follicular neoplasm, in them the final diagnosis of benign or malignant disease confirmed histologically after surgery. Method: We prospectively collected data on 75 patients including 64 females and 11 males presenting with thyroid nodule with cytology report .. View More»
