Abstract

Recently, it was proposed that the noninvasive encapsulated follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma (noninvasive E-FVPTC) start to be called "noninvasive follicular thyroid neoplasm with papillary-like nuclear features" (NIFTP). As the original cohort of 109 patients with NIFTP studied by the consensus conference included only tumors which were equal or more than 1 cm in size, the consensus diagnostic criteria of NIFTP did not explicitly address subcentimeter lesions. In fact, in a recent review published in this journal, Hung & Barletta recognize that there are a few published subcentimetre NIFTP in the literature. This article is protected by copyright.
