Abstract

Papillary microcarcinomas are a specific subgroup of papillary thyroid cancer. They have the same histological features as papillary thyroid cancer but are 1.0 cm or less in diameter. These tumours are a common incidental finding at autopsy and in thyroid glands excised for other pathology. This tumor can metastasize to regional lymph nodes but its ability to cause significant morbidity and mortality has been questioned. As papillary microcarcinomas can represent up to 30 per cent of all papillary cancers seen in a thyroid surgeon's practice, they are an important group. The aim of this review article is to outline the natural history of papillary microcarcinoma and to offer therapeutic management strategies.
