Evaluation of thyroid fine needle aspiration cytology by the Bethesda reporting system: a retrospective analysis of rates and outcomes from the King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital

Fine-needle aspiration (FNA) cytology is a gold standard for preoperative evaluation of thyroid nodules. Recently introduced, the Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology (TBSRTC) has attempted to standardize reporting and cytological criteria in aspiration smears. This reporting format suggested six diagnostic categories, briefl y defi ned as follows...Continue reading →

Clinicopathological Features of Primary Thyroid Lymphomas in Thailand

Primary non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) of the thyroid is a rare tumor. Some studies show association between thyroid lymphomas and concomitant thyroid diseases, mainly lymphocytic thyroiditis. However, this tumor has not been studied in Thailand. .Therefore, herein, we reviewed clinicopathological features of primary thyroid lymphoma including associated thyroid lesions....Continue reading →

However chemotherapy also causes liver injuries in remaining liver parenchyma, such as steatosis, steatohepatitis and sinusoidal dilation. These lesions cannot be distinguished from other causes,...Continue reading →

Rate of Dyserythropoiesis-like Nuclear Changes in Erythroid Precursors in Bone Marrow

Dyserythropoiesis-like post-mortem changes in erythroid precursors at autopsy can look similar to certain kinds of primary marrow diseases. This study is designed to evaluate nuclear changes in erythroid precursors in marrow aspirate smears and histologic sections at different intervals after taken out from the body (delayed fi xation) simulating post-mortem changes....Continue reading →
