The clinical significance of synchronous bilateral papillary thyroid carcinoma (SBiPTC) has not been fully defined, and the prevalence of BRAF V600E mutation in SBiPTC remains unknown. The purpose of this study is to compare the clinical outcomes and BRAF V600E mutation incidence of SBiPTC patients with those of unilateral papillary thyroid carcinoma (UiPTC) patients. From 1997 to 2008, a total of 903 patients with papillary thyroid cancer were treated at a single institution. Of 891 studied… CONTINUE READING
