NIFTP Special Issue in JBCM.


I have published a special issue on NIFTP (non-invasive encapsulated follicular neoplasm with papillary-like nuclear features) in the Journal of Basic and Clinical Medicine (http://www.sspublications.org/index.php/JBCM/index). This is a very first special issue focussing on NIFTP in any scientific journals, and which covered both histological and cytological aspects. It is also characterized by international authors from 8 countries, Eastern and Western practice. This approach elucidated significal differences between the two practice. Please enjoy find those differences and underlining different way of thinking and logics.
