ABSTRACT
In recent years throughout Korea, the use of ultrasound-guided core needle biopsy (CNB) has become common for the preoperative diagnosis of thyroid nodules. However, there is no consensus on the pathology reporting system for thyroid CNB. The Korean Endocrine Pathology Thyroid Core Needle Biopsy Study Group held a conference on thyroid CNB pathology and developed guidelines through contributions from the participants. This article discusses the outcome of the discussions that led to a consensus on the pathology reporting of thyroid CNB.

Core needle biopsies of malignant thyroid nodules. (A, B) The biopsy specimen maintains the typical morphological features of papillary carcinoma. Poorly differentiated carcinoma shows solid, trabecular, and insular growth patterns (C) and mitosis (arrow) (D) under the high-power view. The medullary carcinoma shows the typical morphological features under the low-power view (E) and the high-power view (F).

The medullary carcinoma shows the typical morphological features under the low-power view (E) and the high-power view (F).

Mentions: Most thyroid malignancies, except for follicular carcinoma, have typical histologic features and are easily diagnosed as a malignancy on a CNB specimen. The following diagnoses are included in this category: papillary thyroid carcinoma (Fig. 7A, B), poorly differentiated carcinoma (Fig. 7C, D), undifferentiated (anaplastic) carcinoma, medullary thyroid carcinoma (Fig. 7E, F), lymphoma, and metastatic carcinoma.
