The histologic diagnosis of the follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma (FVPTC) may be troublesome, especially in its encapsulated form. We evaluated the expression of galectin-3 (gal-3) and Hector Battifora mesothelial cell (HBME-1) in 200 formalin-fixed thyroid tissues with diagnosis of classical variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma or FVPTC, encapsulated or with infiltrative growth, with or without lymph node metastasis. All cases of classical variant of papillary thyroid… CONTINUE READING
