To better clarify the distinctions between benign and malignant tumors, we have measured DNA content by flow cytometry on isolated cell nuclei derived from archival paraffin-embedded tissue blocks of 125 Hürthle cell tumors(More)
Distinguishing cellular follicular adenomas (FA) from minimally invasive follicular carcinomas (FC) continues to plague even experienced thyroid pathologists. DNA ploidy analysis has been promoted as a means of making this differentiation; however, the finding of DNA aneuploidy in FA has caused concern that they may demonstrate potential for malignant(More)
