However distinguishing the follicular variant of papillary carcinoma (FVPC) from other follicular thyroid lesions is an area of controversy. In this study we investigated the role of CD56 and claudin-1 in discriminating the FVPCs from other solitary follicular patterned nodules. We also evaluated the application of these two markers in reclassifying the controversial cases of the well… CONTINUE READING
