Abstract

When a scintigraphically autonomous nodule does not produce thyroid hormones enough to suppress serum thyrotrophin, it is generally defined as nontoxic autonomous nodule. In this study, we aimed to compare clinical and ultrasonographical (US) features and cytological and histopathological results of toxic and nontoxic autonomous nodules.
