Follicular variant papillary thyroid cancer (FVPTC) is the second most common subtype after conventional PTC. We compared ultrasonographic (US) features of FVPTC to those of conventional PTC according to tumor size. We reviewed US findings, pathologic reports, and medical charts of 249 PTC patients with surgically proven disease (83 FVPTCs, 166 conventional PTCs) at our institution from January 2007 to December 2012. FVPTCs were divided into PTC-like and follicular neoplasm (FN)-like based on… Expand
Sonographic features of follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma (FV-PTC) and diagnostic performance of the 2017 ACR TI-RADS in FV-PTC
TLDR
FV-PTC features isoeCHOic appearance, macrocalcifications, uneven hypoechoic halo, and peripheral vascularity on US, with lower incidences of microcalcification and taller-than-wide shape, and tends to have lower TI-RADS scores and levels. Expand
Thyroid Nodule Size as a Predictor of Malignancy in Follicular and Hurthle Neoplasms.
INTRODUCTION The management of follicular (FN) and Hurthle cell neoplasms (HCN) is often difficult because of the uncertainty of malignancy risk. We aimed to assess characteristics of benign andExpand
The predictive value of sonographic images of follicular lesions – a comparison with nodules unequivocal in FNA – single centre prospective study
TLDR
Evaluation of UMRFs in FLs is less effective than in nodules with UC, and its effectiveness decreases parallel to the decrease in percentage of PTCs among malignant neoplasms and to the increase of the percentage of adenomas among benign nodules. Expand

TLDR
A risk score system is developed to differentiate follicular PTC from classic PTC and to correlate the risk score of follicle PTC with its FNAC categories and pathologic features. Expand
Prevalence of BRAFV600E Mutation in Follicular Variant of Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma and Non-Invasive Follicular Tumor with Papillary-Like Nuclear Features (NIFTP) in a BRAFV600E Prevalent Area
TLDR
The BRAFV600E mutation is prevalent in Korean patients with FVPTC in a region with high frequency of the BRAfV 600E mutation and very low prevalence of NIFTP compared with that reported in western studies. Expand
Characteristics of different histological subtypes of thyroid nodules classified with 99mTc-methoxy-isobutyl-isonitrile imaging and Thyroid Imaging Reporting And Data System
TLDR
TIRADS is useful to detect PTC, but FVPTC and FTC may be missed, however, neither TIRADS nor MIBI imaging are able to differentiate between follicular adenoma and FTC or FVP TC. Expand
The relationship of thyroid nodule size on malignancy risk according to histological type of thyroid cancer
TLDR
Nodule size does not correlate with risk of malignancy, but the relationship between nodule size and malignancies risk depends on the histological type of thyroid cancer. Expand
Higher EU-TIRADS-Score Correlated with BRAF V600E Positivity in the Early Stage of Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma
TLDR
For TC patient’s stratification, a strong suspicion of BRAF V600E negativity in preoperative management of TC patients could limit the over-treatment of asymptomatic, very low-risk, indolent disease and leave room for active surveillance. Expand
Validation of American Thyroid Association Ultrasound Risk Assessment of Thyroid Nodules Selected for Ultrasound Fine-Needle Aspiration.
TLDR
This prospective study supports the new ATA sonographic pattern risk assessment for selection of thyroid nodules for US-FNA based upon TBSRTC and surgical pathology results, and indicates nodules categorized as atypia of undetermined significance/follicular lesion of und determined significance with ATA high-risk sonographic patterns have a high likelihood of being malignant.

TLDR
Tumor size is an independent prognostic factor for OS and DSS in DTC patients with T4 disease; tumor size-related modification of the T4 category can improve the AJCC staging system for DTC patient with stage III-IV diseases. Expand

Follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma: distinct biologic behavior based on ultrasonographic features.
TLDR
FVPTC with malignant US features seems to behave in a more aggressive fashion than FVPTC without malignantUS features, and US can help predict the behavior of FVP TC. Expand
Follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma: distinct biologic behavior based on ultrasonographic features.
TLDR
The mean tumor size of PTC-like FVPTC was significantly smaller than that of FN-likeFVPTC (p=0.0483), which indicates a significant difference in the biologic behavior of the two variants of papillary thyroid carcinoma. Expand

TLDR
Follicular variant papillary thyroid carcinomas show a relatively larger size, more benign sonographic features, a lower incidence of a sonographically malignant grade, and a lower diagnostic rate of PTC on FNAB compared with conventional PTCs. Expand
Sonographic Features of the Follicular Variant of Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma
TLDR
The follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma tends to have relatively benign sonographic features, such as hypoechogenicity, well‐defined margins, an oval shape, and no microcalcifications, but most lesions were correctly classified as malignant by both sonography and FNAB. Expand
Classical and Follicular Variant of Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma: A Comparative Study on Clinicopathologic Features and Long-term Outcome
TLDR
Although patients with FVPTC had more favorable clinicopathologic features and a better tumor risk group profile, their long-term outcome was similar to that of CPTC patients. Expand
Follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma is a unique clinical entity: a population-based study of 10,740 cases.
TLDR
FV-PTC is a common variant of PTC that represents an intermediate entity with clinical features that are between C-P TC and FTC, and Interestingly, despite the variations in clinical behavior, the long-term outcome of these patients remains excellent and similar to C.PTC. Expand
Clinical Differences between Classic Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma and Variants
TLDR
Knowledge of the nature of PTC variants, especially aggressive types, is important in predicting patient outcome and providing appropriate treatment, and the disease-specific survival and recurrence-free survival of patients with favorable PTC were not different from the patients with classic PTC.

Papillary and follicular variant of papillary carcinoma of the thyroid: Initial presentation and response to therapy
TLDR
FVPTC presented with larger original tumor size and higher tumor stage but a lower local invasion rate and recurrence rate than patients with PTC despite similar therapies, which suggest that FVPTC and PTC carry similar prognoses in early stages and that F VPTC may have a reduced predilection for local invasion.

TLDR
The clinical behavior of the FVPTC group did not differ significantly from that of the PP TC group, whereas compared with the NHFTC group, the F VPTC group showed statistically significant differences for most of the analyzed variables. Expand
