Abstract

DNA content of tumour was found to correlate with various prognostic factors and survival, especially in well differentiated thyroid carcinoma. The aim of this investigation was to evaluate the correlation between the DNA ploidy and the prognosis as well as the survival in thyroid carcinoma in our country, being an endemic iodine deficiency region.
