BACKGROUND: Obesity is a risk factor for several cancers, including differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC). Moreover, it has also been investigated as a potential risk factor for aggressiveness of DTC, but the data gathered so far are conflicting. The aim of our study was to evaluate the relationship between body mass index (BMI), aggressiveness of DTC at diagnosis, and clinical outcome. METHODS: We evaluated 1058 consecutive DTC patients treated with total thyroidectomy and enrolled at the time of...

To compare the epidemiological, clinical, and pathological features of follicular (FVPTC) and classical (CVPTC) variants of papillary thyroid cancer and to correlate their outcomes according to different features. Retrospective analysis of FVPTC and CVPTC patients selected at the moment of surgical treatment from 1999 to 2004, with a median follow-up of 15 years. Several significant differences were found between FVPTC and CVPTC such as the mean age at diagnosis, the presence of tumor capsule, t...

Differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) is the most frequent endocrine malignancy and represents the most rapidly increasing cancer diagnosis worldwide. In the last 20 years, this increase has been mostly due to a higher detection of small papillary thyroid cancers, with doubtful effects on patients' outcome. In fact, despite this growth, cancer-related death remained stable over the years. The growing detection of microcarcinomas associated to the indolent behavior of these cancers led to the devel...

Abstract Objective: In intermediate risk DTC (IR-DTC) patients, selective use of radioiodine (131-I) for remnant ablation and/or as adjuvant therapy (RRA) is advocated. The recently suggested post-...

The diagnosis of the primary origin of metastases to the thyroid gland is not easy, in particular in case of concomitant lung adenocarcinoma which shares several immunophenotypical features. Although rare, these tumors should be completely characterized in order to set up specific therapies. This is the case of a 64-years-old woman referred to our institution for a very advanced neoplastic disease diagnosed both as poorly differentiated/anaplastic thyroid cancer (PDTC/ATC) for the huge involveme...

CONTEXT: The dramatic rise in the incidence of thyroid cancer over the last 30 years is largely attributable to the increasing diagnosis of papillary microcarcinomas (mPTCs). Current guidelines endorse an observational management approach in properly selected cases. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the feasibility of active surveillance in mPTC in Italy, its impact on real life, and to identify risk factors of progression. DESIGN AND SETTING: In 2014 we started a prospective-observational study of active ...

Background: Pathogenic germline mutations affecting the RET proto-oncogene underlie the development of hereditary medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC). The aims of this study were to evaluate the prevalence of germline RET mutations in a large series of MTC, collected over the last 25 years, and to reappraise their clinical significance. Methods: We performed RET genetic screening in 2031 Italian subjects: patients who presented with sporadic (n = 1264) or hereditary (n = 117) MTC, plus 650 relativ...
