PAPILLARY THYROID MICROCARCINOMA IN A BENIGN THYROID NODULE: AN UNDERDIAGNOSED ENTITY

ABSTRACT Fine needle aspiration cytology, though, is a reliable, minimally invasive procedure with high sensitivity, specificity and diagnostic accuracy, still it has its limitations in making out diagnosis of thyroid nodules.
