The clinical characteristics, pathological subtypes and patients' survival in 40 patients with thyroid carcinoma between March 2007 and March 2012 were evaluated. This study included 33 (82.5 %) females and seven (17.5%) males (female to male ratio of 4.7:1). The median age of patients was 47.5 (range; 24-64). Papillary carcinoma was the commonest pathological subtype (23 patients, 57.5%), followed by follicular carcinoma (14 patients, 35%) and medullary carcinoma (3 cases, 7.5%). Total thryoidectomy was performed in 30 (75%), lobectomy in six (15%), subtotal and multifocal thryoidectomy in two (5%) patients. The median time of follow up was 3 years with range of 1-5 years. After ive years 34 (85%) patients were alive and six (15%) were dead. The overall 5-year actuarial survival was 85%, for papillary carcinoma 91.3%, for follicular carcinoma 85.7% and for medullary carcinoma it was 33.3%. The results suggest that total thryoidectomy had better outcome in comparison with other surgeries.
