Serial sectioning of thyroid follicles showed thyroid hyperplasia with increased follicular epithelial cell height and reduced colloid in all groups of fish that had been exposed to perchlorate for 28 days, compared with control fish.
The histologic differential diagnosis includes palpation thyroiditis (histiocytes, lymphocytes, and no neutrophils), lymphocytic thyroiditis (oxyphilic [Hurthle, oncocytic] follicular epithelial cell metaplasia with mature lymphocytes and plasma cells arranged around germinal centers), and Riedel's thyroiditis (vasculitis and fibrosis).
The diagnosis of Hashimoto's thyroiditis was confirmed by finding lymphocytic infiltrates in clusters of follicular epithelial cell, Hurthle cell changes and increased number of lymphocytes in the background and of colloid goiter by the presence of cohesive monolayer sheets or poorly cohesive clusters of follicular epithelial cells, bare nuclei, macrophages and abundant colloid, multinucleated giant cells, epithelioid cell clusters and anisonucleosis.
Diseases of the thyroid can arise from follicular epithelial cells or from C cells and include hyperplastic and neoplastic processes.
Immunoreactivity was considered positive if more than 10% of follicular epithelial cells stained.
In a study recently published in Genes & Development, researchers at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, identified hair shaft progenitors in the matrix that are specific to the hair shaft and not to follicular epithelial cells.
2012), it was predicted that ovarian Band 2 preparations would contain the basal plasma membrane of follicular epithelial cells and the oocyte plasma membrane.
the presence of at least six groups of well-visualised follicular epithelial cells with at least 10 cells in each group.
The immune-system abnormality is mediated by antibodies to the thyrotropin receptor found on follicular epithelial cells.
The first group comprises of carcinomas arising from the follicular epithelial cells derived from the median endodermal anlage from tongue and includes the papillary and follicular carcinomas.
3 per 100 000 in 2008 (1, 2) Most thyroid carcinomas (95%) are derived from follicular epithelial cells and are mainly well differentiated, including papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) and follicular thyroid carcinoma (FTC), with a minor fraction of poorly differentiated carcinomas (PDCs) and undifferentiated carcinomas (UDCs).
Pigment present in follicular epithelial cells in fine-needle aspirate can also be mistaken for hemosiderin-laden macrophages.
