ABSTRACT
Introduction: Thyroid carcinomas are common malignancies encountered in routine diagnostics
Aim: Aim of this study was to analyse the histopathological spectrum of thyroid malignancy with papillary carcinoma subtyping and to assess the cytological and histopathological correlation of thyroid malignancies.
Methods and materials: Carcinoma thyroid cases diagnosed between January 2016 and January 2020 were retrieved. Demography, histopathological spectrum and cytology-histopathology correlation were assessed and in case of discrepancy the cause was analysed.
Results: A total of 102 cases of carcinoma thyroid were found, majority being in the fourth decade with female preponderance. Most patients were euthyroid at diagnosis and presented with thyroid nodule. On histopathology, majority were papillary carcinomas with classical type being the commonest. On cytological correlation discrepancy was seen in 13 cases.
Conclusion: It is vital to be aware of their morphology to avoid misdiagnosis. Cytology is an effective way of determining the type of lesion before excision.
