Same result was seen with adenomatous goiter
and benign cystic lesion.
KEY WORDS: Thyroid biopsy; Adenomatous goiter
; Follicular adenoma; Papillary carcinoma.
Histologically benign lesion were 42 cases of which colloid goiter were 25 (53.19%) cases, adenomatous goiter
2 (4.26%) cases, multi nodular goiter 1 (2.13%) case, follicular adenoma 10 (21.28%), thyroid cyst 3 (6.38%) cases and Hashimoto's thyroiditis 1 (2.13%) case.
The histopathology diagnosis in these cases was adenomatous goiter
in 35 cases, follicular adenoma in 16 cases, follicular carcinoma in four cases and follicular variant of papillary carcinoma of thyroid (PTC) in seven cases [Table 1 and Chart 4].
Benign thyroid lesions have been given as colloid goiter, adenomatous goiter
, hyperplastic nodule and colloid cyst.
Extracutaneous manifestations occur in about 90% of cases, most often involving the thyroid gland (50-70%), with the majority of lesions being adenomatous goiters
or multiple follicular adenomas [4, 5].
