Abstract

Fine needle aspiration (FNA) cytology results were compared with thyroid tissue pathology reports in 44 patients who underwent thyroidectomy. Benign (12) and malignant (10) thyroid cytology interpretations correlated with the final thyroid histopathology. Of 22 thyroid aspirate samples that were considered suspicious or indeterminate, 5 were malignant and 17 were benign. The data obtained support the efficacy of FNA in the evaluation of thyroid nodular disease.
