Özet

ObjectiveIn this study, we investigated the efficacy of the Bethesda system (TBS) for reporting thyroid cytopathology in determining the risk of malignancy for indeterminate cases. These cases comprised atypia or follicular lesion of undetermined significance (AUS/FLUS), follicular neoplasia or suspicious for follicular neoplasia (FN/SFN) and suspicious for malignancy (SM) categories. AUS/FLUS cases were further subcategorized according to their patterns, and the malignancy rate for each subcategory was calculated.
