FIRST PARAGRAPH: Hyalinizing trabecular ade-noma (HTA) is a very rare tumor (<1% of all primary thyroid gland tumors) of thyroid follicular cell origin with a trabecular pattern of growth and marked intratrabecular hyalinization. For all intents and purposes, this is a benign tumor, although there is a case report of pulmonary metastasis with invasion, suggesting the term tumor be used instead of adenoma. A few cases have occurred following radiation exposure, and there may be a relationship to thyroid papillary carcinoma, as there have been reports of RET/PTC rearrangements.
