One of the limitations of fine-needle aspiration (FNA) of the thyroid is difficulty in distinguishing the follicular variant (FV) of papillary thyroid carcinomas (PTC) from follicular neoplasms. By highlighting the "Orphan Annie-eyed" clear nuclei of the former, the Ultrafast Papanicolaou stain (UFP) easily separates these two entities. One thousand one hundred thirty-five ultrasound-guided FNAs of the thyroid were assessed by UFP with immediate biopsy results reported to the patients in a busy… CONTINUE READING
