AbstractThyroid lesions are one of the common conditions encountered in clinical practice. The diseases of thyroid are of great importance because most of them are amenable to medical or surgical treatment. Often it is difficult to make an accurate diagnosis by clinical evaluation alone. Hence Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) study of such lesions along with clinical evaluation is emphasized in order to aid towards accurate diagnosis. A uniform reporting system for thyroid FNA will facilitate effective communication among cytopathologists, endocrinologists, surgeons, radiologists, and other health care providers. Also, it will facilitate cytologic-histologic correlation for thyroid diseases, facilitate research into the epidemiology, molecular biology, pathology and diagnosis of thyroid diseases, particularly neoplasia and allow easy and reliable sharing of data from different laboratories for national and international collaborative studies. The present study aims at diagnosing various thyroid diseases based upon cytomorphological features in FNAC.
