INFANTE AMOROS, Adalberto et al. Tryroid cyst papillary carcinoma: Study of four cases. Rev cubana med [online]. 2004, vol.43, n.2-3, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1561-302X.

4 cases of cyst papillary carcinoma in a period of 4 years were presented. All of them underwent physical examination. A firm cervical mass was found in the anterior side of the neck and cervical adenopathies were palpated in 2 of them. Imaging techniques (cervical echography and thyroid gammagram) were applied. The study was completed with FNAB, which had a diagnostic value in 75 % of the cases. An anatomopathological study of all the pieces obtained was conducted. Resection of the cyst and intraoperatory biopsy were performed. In those cases with confirmed diagnosis of cyst papillary carcinoma, total thyroidectomy was carried out and, if necessary, lymphadenectomy. The treatment was concluded with I131 at ablative doses and TSH -supressing hormonal treatment. The role of FNAB in the preoperative study was stressed.

Palabras clave : Papillary carcinoma; thyroid cyst; FNAB; total thyroidectomy; cervical lymphadenectomy.
