Eleven cases of thyroid lymphoma were studied by the immunoperoxidase avidin-biotin technique with calcitonin and somatostatin rabbit antisera. In 6 cases of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, in thyroid tissue residual to the lymphomatous infiltration, the C cell density was markedly increased and clustering was often observed; the C cells often took part in the follicular lining, frequently with polar distribution; these elements displayed a strong positivity for calcitonin, while the number of… CONTINUE READING
