An Observational Trial for Papillary Thyroid Microcarcinoma in Japanese Patients
TLDR
Comparison of the outcomes of 340 patients with PMC who underwent observation and the prognosis of 1,055 patients who underwent immediate surgery without observation shows papillary microcarcinomas that are not associated with unfavorable features can be candidates for observation regardless of patient background and clinical features.
Patient age is significantly related to the progression of papillary microcarcinoma of the thyroid under observation.
TLDR
Although PTMC in young patients may be more progressive than in older patients, it might not be too late to perform surgery after subclinical PTMC has progressed to clinical disease, regardless of patient age.
Clinicopathologic significance of intrathyroidal epithelial thymoma/carcinoma showing thymus-like differentiation: a collaborative study with Member Institutes of The Japanese Society of Thyroid
TLDR
It is suggested that curative resection followed by radiation therapy may effectively prevent locoregional recurrence and CD5 immunostaining is useful for diagnosing ITET/CASTLE.
BRAF mutation in papillary thyroid carcinoma in a Japanese population: its lack of correlation with high-risk clinicopathological features and disease-free survival of patients.
TLDR
There is no evidence that BRAF(V600E) mutation significantly reflects the aggressive characteristics and poor prognosis of patients with papillary carcinoma in Japan.
An observation trial without surgical treatment in patients with papillary microcarcinoma of the thyroid.
TLDR
The preliminary data suggest that papillary microcarcinomas do not frequently become clinically apparent, and that patients can choose observation while their tumors are not progressing, although they are pathologically multifocal and involve lymph nodes in high incidence.
Usefulness of Thyroglobulin Measurement in Fine-needle Aspiration Biopsy Specimens for Diagnosing Cervical Lymph Node Metastasis in Patients with Papillary Thyroid Cancer
TLDR
Thyroglobulin measurement in fine-needle aspiration biopsy wash-out is thus a useful technique for diagnosing lymph node metastasis of papillary thyroid cancer.
Clinical Significance of Metastasis to the Central Compartment from Papillary Microcarcinoma of the Thyroid
TLDR
For papillary microcarcinoma, US is an insensitive technique for detecting the central node metastasis, the presence of central nodes metastasis is unrelated to DFS of patients, and when performing lobectomy for PMC involving only one lobe, dissection of the central compartment in the contralateral lobe is optional.
Prognosis of patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma having clinically apparent metastasis to the lateral compartment.
TLDR
It is suggested that N1b patients having metastasis larger than 3cm, those showing extranodal extension, and those having 5 or more clinically apparent metastasis should be regarded as high-risk, and that careful surgical treatment and postoperative follow-up are necessary.
Prognostic Significance of Extrathyroid Extension of Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma: Massive but Not Minimal Extension Affects the Relapse-free Survival
TLDR
These findings suggest that upgrading of T category for tumors with massive extension is appropriate, whereas that for tumor with only minimal extension is not, and careful surgical treatment and postoperative follow-up are required for tumorswith massive extension to posterior organs other than the recurrent laryngeal nerve.
Cribriform-morular variant of Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma: Clue to Early Detection of Familial Adenomatous Polyposis-associated Colon Cancer
TLDR
The histopathology of CMV in patients with PTC should arouse a suspicion of FAP, especially if there are multiple tumors, which can lead to early detection of colon cancer.
