The aim of the study described here was to compare ultrasound features, pathologic characteristics and prognoses of the follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma (FVPTC) according to cytology results. Eighty-seven FVPTCs were classified according to the first cytology results as the surgery group (n = 66, follicular neoplasm/H?rthle cell neoplasm, suspicious for malignancy and malignancy) and the indeterminate group (n = 21, non-diagnostic and benign), for whom the management was follow-up. The indeterminate group had a longer mean interval to surgery (p = 0.020) and larger tumor size (p = 0.018). More tumors were assessed as probably benign in the indeterminate group than in the surgery group (p < 0.001). Extrathyroidal extension and lymph node metastasis did not significantly differ between the two groups, and no patient had a recurrence (mean follow-up interval: 54.9 ± 16.9 mo). The indeterminate group exhibited more probably benign features and larger size on ultrasound, with surgery being performed at a later date. However, aggressive pathologic characteristics and tumor recurrence did not significantly differ between the two groups.
