Abstract

A retrospective study on 186 cases of papillary carcinoma of the thyroid collected over a 12 year period is presented. The survival rate was analysed according to age, sex, the presence of lymphnodal metastases, the interval between onset of the tumour and first treatment, the type of operation and the quanitty of radioiodine necessary for complete radionecrosis of the tumour tissue. The results indicate that - with the treatment adopted - papillary carcinoma of the thyroid has an excellent prognosis for patients under 40; there is no difference according to sex. A higher survival rate was also observed in cases where the primary tumour had a diameter of less than 2 centimeters, and where laterocervical lymphnodal metastases were present. Although influenced by numerous variables, diagnostic latency seems directly linked to survival. Finally, an improved prognosis was observed in patients given a total thyroidectomy, while no correlation with the quantity of radioiodine administered was found.
