Hurthle cell carcinomas exhibit unequivocal capsular and/or vascular invasion; they are aggressive tumors with a poor prognosis. Recently, Hurthle cell papillary thyroid carcinomas (PTCs) have been identified on morphological grounds. We hypothesize that a subset of HCTs represent PTC with clinical… CONTINUE READING
