It has been proposed to classify the non-invasive follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma (FVPTC) as “non-invasive follicular thyroid neoplasm with papillary like nuclear features” (NIFT-P). No doubt this change in the name i.e. not calling FVPTC as “carcinoma” can lead to much confusion or add to it. This presentation will discuss the current diagnostic criteria for the follicular patterned lesions of the thyroid and the impact of this reclassification of FVPTC as “not carcinoma” on the reporting of thyroid FNA specimens.
