AIMS Few clinicopathological parameters have been identified as independent predictive factors for lymph node metastasis. This study evaluated the predictive ability of three histological characteristics of PTC in lymph node metastases: hobnail features, loss of cohesiveness/polarity (LOCP) and micropapillary structures. METHODS AND RESULTS Tissue specimens from 153 patients with histologically confirmed PTC including 112 cases of papillary thyroid microcarcinoma (PTMC) were enrolled in this… CONTINUE READING
