Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Thyroid carcinoma showing thymus-like differentiation (CASTLE) is a rare tumor of the thyroid gland or adjacent soft tissues of the neck. Given the comparatively good prognosis of CASTLE, it is crucial to distinguish this neoplasm from other more aggressive thyroid neoplasms that can have similar or overlapping cytomorphological features. However, there is little information about the cytomorphology of CASTLE available in the literature. Here we report the cytomorphology and histology of thyroid CASTLE in a 52-year-old woman and present a review of the literature. Diagn. Cytopathol.2011;39:204-209. © 2010 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
