Fine needle aspiration cytopathology is currently the best approach for evaluating thyroid nodules. Follicular lesions represent a morphological limit which may be overcome using immunocytochemistry. We report here a series of known markers useful in cytology and helping the cytopathologist in distinguishing benign from malignant follicular neoplasms of the thyroid.
