Abstract

Aims and Objective: Evaluation of Solitary thyroid nodule to differentiate benign from malignant lesion and establish correlation between USG, FNAC and Histopathological examination (HPE).

Materials and Methods: Study design: It is a prospective study of patients admitted in ENT department of Civil Hospital Ahmadabad for solitary thyroid nodule from August 2018 to October 2019.

Study Tools: A total 102 patients were evaluated. Help was taken from radiology department for USG neck screening and also from pathology department where FNAC and HPE findings are correlated.

Observation and Results: Out of 21 cases diagnosed as malignant on ultrasound, 18 were confirmed as malignant on FNAC, 3 were found to be benign. So, correlation between USG and FNAC is 85.7%.

Out of 21 cases diagnosed as malignant on ultrasound, 16 were confirmed as malignant by HPE, rest were found to be benign. So, correlation between USG and HPE is 76.1%.

Out of 18 cases diagnosed as malignant on FNAC, 16 were confirmed by histopathology postoperatively. So, correlation between FNAC AND HPE is 88.8%.

Conclusion: In our study correlation between USG and FNAC was 85.7%. Correlation between FNAC and HPE is 88%. Fine-needle aspiration cytology is recommended to be a cost-effective procedure in the initial assessment and management of thyroid nodules [3,6].

Detecting malignancy preoperatively allows total thyroidectomy in a single operation without the need of removal of remnant thyroid in second surgery.
