Papillary (PTC) and follicular thyroid carcinoma (FTC) are known as differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC). Nevertheless, according to the UICC/AJCC (TNM) classification PTC and FTC are frequently analyzed as one cancer. The aim of this study is to show differences in outcome and specific prognostic factors in an iodine-replete endemic goiter region. Six hundred and three patients with DTC treated within a 35-year-period were retrospectively analyzed with respect to carcinoma-specific survival…

Prognostic Factors in Papillary and Follicular Thyroid Carcinoma: Their Implications for Cancer Staging

There were marked differences in clinicopathologic features, treatment, and prognostic factors between the two histologic types of DTC.

Follicular Thyroid Carcinoma in an Iodine-Replete Endemic Goiter Region: A Prospectively Collected, Retrospectively Analyzed Clinical Trial

Total thyroidectomy is recommended in all patients with FTC because of early distant metastases, and patients with WI-FTC need a more aggressive surgical treatment because of higher tendency for lymph node metastases.

There were marked differences in clinicopathologic features, treatment, and prognostic factors between the two histologic types of DTC.

Difference between papillary and follicular thyroid carcinoma outcomes: an experience from Egyptian institution

The significant prognostic factors vary between the two types of DTCs, and PTC and FTC patients need to be analyzed and reported independently.

In this paper, clinicopathological features significantly affecting patient prognosis are described based on data as well as others.

HCC patients were older and had more lymphovascular invasions than FTC patients, however, FTC and HCC patients had similar initial clinicopathological features.

Prognostic Factors of Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma Vary According to Sex and Patient Age

Differences in the prognostic significance of prognostic factors of PTC varied according to patient sex and age, which might contribute not only to evaluating the prognosis but also to deciding therapeutic strategies for each patient.

This special issue includes papers investigating the prognosis of DTC patients from various standpoints, and concludes that total central node dissection is preferable for papillary carcinoma.

Prognostic factors of PTC and FTC and their therapeutic strategies are described and recent advances of treatment for ATC are also described.

It is suggested that subclassifying eaFTC according to the degree of VI and restricting wFTC to VI-positive cases would be better in the WHO classification, and Revising the definition for wide CI is recommended.

The TNM classification is useful in distinguishing patients with different prognostic outcomes, however, the small patient numbers in pTNM stages other than stages I precludes it from evaluating its usefulness as a guide for therapy.

The histological variety of PTC has prognostic value for survival in patients with PTC and a new prognostic index (PI) for survival can be formulated by accounting for these factors.

Results show that TCV of papillary thyroid carcinoma has a more aggressive clinical course and a worse prognosis than UPTC in patient groups with similar age and sex distributions, length of follow-up, and tumor size.

Importance of Lymph Node Metastases in Follicular Thyroid Cancer

The data demonstrate lymph node metastases to be a significant prognostic factor for recurrence of FTC and the patient’s survival and advocate thyroidectomy plus central lymph node dissection as the basic surgical strategy.

Long‐term results and prognostic factors in patients with differentiated thyroid carcinoma

A multivariate analysis of the prognostic factors was carried out on a series of differentiated thyroid cancers followed for 8 to 40 years, finding that patients treated after 1960 have a better outcome than patients treated earlier, although they did not differ in age distribution, histologic characteristics, sex ratio, or incidence of palpable lymph nodes.
