    Context.--The macrofollicular variant of papillary carcinoma of the thyroid is a rare entity described by J. Albores-Saavedra and colleagues in 1991. It is characterized histologically by a predominance of macrofollicles and clinically by a low incidence of metastasis. This entity may represent...

    There are 3 compartments of regional lymph nodes to which thyroid carcinoma metastasizes: central, lateral, and mediastinal compartments. The central compartment is the nearest to the thyroid and usually dissected routinely. However, the indication for dissection of the lateral and mediastinal...
