Hurthle cell carcinoma and 'insular' carcinoma, uncommon types of thyroid carcinoma
Vitali A., Nistri R., Basili G., Carrieri P., Nardi S.
The Hürthle cell carcinoma and ''insular'' carcinoma are two uncommon types of thyroid carcinoma. These neoplasms do not present accurate characteristics as to incidence, natural history, pathophysiology and therapies. Two cases are presented: the first was submitted to near-total thyroidectomy for Hürthle cell carcinoma, the second to total thyroidectomy for ''insular'' carcinoma with bone and lung metastases. Some literature previous studies on pathophysiology and natural history of both tumors are discussed. At the end, personal trend on the surgical treatment of these two thyroid neoplasms is presented: total thyroidectomy for CCh and ''insular'' carcinoma, and near-total thyroidectomy for Hürthle cell adenoma.
