Abstract

Nowadays thyroid nodules are very common in clinical practice.Fine needle aspiration (FNA) cytology is currently the gold standard in thyroid nodule assessment in addition to the echographic features. However, more than three in four patients with a pre-operative diagnosis of indeterminate nodule receive an unnecessary surgery.2 This study was designed to investigate if reporting indeterminate nodules into two different categories at the fine needle cytology is useful, in order to identify patients that really needs a surgical treatment.
