  • Slide 3: Higher magnification of a thyroid papillary carcinoma showing optically clear nuclei.
  • Slide 4: Follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma showing microfollicles.
  • Slide 5: Higher magnification of a follicular variant of papillary carcinoma showing similar nuclear features as the conventional tumor.
  • Slide 6: Follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma with prominent lymphocytic component.
  • Slide 7: Follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma showing a prominent germinal center.

  • Slide 11: Papillary thyroid carcinoma with more solid and oncocytic features.
  • Slide 12: Higher magnification of an oncocytic papillary thyroid carcinoma.
  • Slide 13: Sclerosing variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma. Note the presence of numerous calcifications.
  • Slide 14: Papillary thyroid carcinoma with a glandular-like arrangement, so-called columnar cell variant.
  • Slide 15: Intermediate magnifications showing a complex arrangement of gland-like structures.
