Abstract

AIM: The relationship between papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) and accompanying Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) has been investigated extensively. However, there is no agreement among the authors. We aimed with this study to investigate this relationship in a limited subtype of PTC called papillary thyroid microcarcinoma (PTMC).
