Figure 3a: Cytological aspirate revealing flat cohesive sheets of Hürthle cells with mild nuclear pleomorphism led to diagnosis of Hürthle cell neoplasm (MGG, ×400). Inset: follow up histology showed extensive oxyphilic change in colloid goiter (Inset; H and E, ×100) Figure 3b: False positive case of Hashimoto's thyroiditis misdiagnosed as Hürthle cell neoplasm on cytology exhibiting syncytial clusters of oxyphilic cells showing mild nuclear pleomorphism. (MGG, ×100) Inset showing histological diagnosis of Hürthle cell nodule in Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Aspiration probably done from the Hürthle cell nodule led to the overdiagnosis (Inset; H and E, ×40)
