Fine needle aspiration (FNA) is often the first step in management of a thyroid nodule. Although papillary carcinomas have distinctive features on conventional smears as well as ThinPrep preparations, cytopathologists rely on the architectural arrangement of cells to classify follicular lesions. The accuracy of ThinPrep in this regard has not been determined. We reviewed all thyroidectomy specimens from a 22-mo period that showed a follicular lesion and had one or more preoperative FNA.
