CONTEXT It is recommended to measure thyroglobulin (Tg) levels in the needle washout fluids from fine-needle aspirations (FNAs) in patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) who have ultrasonographically suspicious metastatic lymph nodes (LNs). However, it is not clear whether serum anti-Tg antibodies (TgAbs) interfere with the detection of Tg in… CONTINUE READING
