Abstract

Our findings both support and extend those of Nikiforova et al. [M.N. Nikiforova, R. Ciampi, G. Salvatore, M. Santoro, M. Gandhi, J.A. Knauf, et al., Low prevalence of BRAF mutations in radiation-induced thyroid tumors in contrast to sporadic papillary carcinomas, Cancer Lett. 209 (2004) 1-6]: BRAF mutations are rare in childhood PTC, both in an irradiation setting and in sporadic tumors.
