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
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.
