Nonmedullary thyroid carcinoma, with or without cell oxyphilia

Common Name(s)

Nonmedullary thyroid carcinoma, with or without cell oxyphilia

One peculiar form of thyroid tumors is characterized by the presence of cell oxyphilia. Oxophil cells are found in a minority of thyroid tumors, either benign or malignant. These cells show a large volume of granular eosinophilic cytoplasm and are very rich in mitochondria. The familial occurrence of thyroid tumors with cell oxyphilia was reported by {4:Katoh et al. (1998)}. {2:Canzian et al. (1998)} reported such a family with affected members in 3 generations and by linkage analysis mapped the gene to 19p13.
