Papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is the most common thyroid neoplasms accounting for about 80%–90% of thyroid malignancies. Thyroid papillary microcarcinomas are the subtype of papillary carcinoma, defined as thyroid tumor <1–1.5 cm. They are incidentally encountered in autopsies or surgical specimens or nodular thyroid diseases where malignancy is not suspected. Hence, a meticulous search is mandatory for finding foci of PTC before labeling as benign.
