MANAGING THYROID TUMORS DIAGNOSED AS NON-INVASIVE FOLLICULAR TUMOR WITH PAPILLARY LIKE NUCLEAR FEATURES (NIFTP).

Abstract

This commentary summarizes the history and reclassification of noninvasive follicular thyroid tumor with papillary like nuclei (NIFTP). The salient histopathologic features, which are based on immunohistochemical and molecular profiles and serve as inclusion and exclusion criteria are reviewed. The authors also provide their own point of view regarding the practical issues and possible concerns that may be raised by both clinicians and patients based on the diagnosis of NIFTP.
