Staii A, Mirocha S, Todorova-Koteva K, Glinberg S, Jaume JC (2010) Hashimoto thyroiditis
is more frequent than expected when diagnosed by cytology which uncovers a pre-clinical state.
A minute focus of extranodal marginal zone B-cell lymphoma arising in Hashimoto thyroiditis
diagnosed with PCR after laser capture microdissection: a case report.
Given the frequent coexistence of Hashimoto thyroiditis
, small cell lymphomas are more difficult to diagnose cytologically, and immunohistochemical staining or flow cytometry may be necessary to establish monoclonality and characterize surface markers.
On physical examination, Hashimoto thyroiditis
reveals an enlarged, rubbery, nontender and nodular thyroid gland.

Age, sex, thyroid specimen weight, Hashimoto thyroiditis
, and malignancy were not recognized as risk factors.
Of the thirty four surgeries performed for Hashimoto thyroiditis
, four cases were reported as neoplastic on histopathology.
Therefore, in the present study we compared body mass and body composition between the patients with Hashimoto thyroiditis
who were in clinical and hormonal euthyreosis and healthy individuals who had never been treated for autoimmune thyroid disorders.
Two LD-TMAs were constructed by arraying cores of 2-mm diameter in a grid of 7 X 5 each, representing 38 thyroid carcinomas (27 papillary [16 classic, 6 follicular variant, 4 tall cell, and 1 columnar cell], 5 follicular, 2 poorly differentiated, and 4 anaplastic), 1 follicular adenoma, 1 Hashimoto thyroiditis
(inadvertently included), and 25 normal thyroids (Figure 1, B).
The effect of hormone replacement treatment on thrombin-activatable fibrinolysis inhibitor activity levels in patients with Hashimoto thyroiditis
Anti-TPO antibodies and anti-thyroglobulin antibodies are increased in most patients with Hashimoto thyroiditis
and therefore may be useful in establishing this diagnosis.
