FIRST PARAGRAPH: Thyroid gland follicular carcinoma is a malignant epithelial neoplasm of follicular cell differentiation that exhibits capsular and/or lymphovascular invasion while lacking the nuclear features of thyroid papillary carcinoma. While rarely inherited, follicular carcinoma will develop in about 20% of patients with Cowden syndrome, related specifically to PTEN germline mutations. Previous radiation exposure and iodine deficiency are known environmental etiologic factors.
