NIFTP: Key Concepts Regarding Cytology, Surgical Pathology, Molecular Testing and Clinical Practice
N. Paul Ohori, MD
Noninvasive Follicular Thyroid Neoplasm with Papillary-like Nuclear Features (NIFTP) is a new entity that is considered to be a non-malignant, yet an in-situ/dysplastic/ pre-malignant process. In this webinar, we will explore the brief history of follicular-patterned thyroid lesions, biologic nature of NIFTP, the specific histopathologic inclusion and exclusion criteria, cytopathologic issues (e.g. change to the rate of malignancy, effect on the Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology, and the pre-surgical cytology diagnoses associated with NIFTP), role of molecular testing, and optimal management strategies. How a successful NIFTP implementation would be effective in reducing overdiagnosis and overtreatment will also be addressed.
