An FNAB report as suspect follicular nodule refers a patient to surgery, but many patients in this case will have benign diseases on paraffin preparations. A rational presurgical evaluation of these nodules would prevent surgical risk, lifetime hormone reposition and hospital cost. In this histological study galectin-3 was specifically expressed by malignant neoplasm, showing that this molecule could be used as an adequate marker for malignant follicular cells.

Our data corroborate previous works 4, 8, 10, 18, 25, 32 that found consistent expression of galectin-3 by papillary carcinomas, some negative results for follicular carcinomas, and erratic expression by adenomas. High percentages for sensitivity, specificity and predictive values, obtained by our study suggest that galectin-3 expression by a follicular cell may be used as marker for its malignancy. Adenomas expressing galectin-3, as described above, have been classified by previous works as carcinomas without morphological evidence of capsular and vascular invasion 4, 7, 8, Thus, a new possibility of detecting early thyroid cancer can be accomplished with galectin-3 immunostaining test.

However more investigation is certainly needed to certify if this finding is a true or a false positive result. Cytoplasmic galectin-3 expression was found only in carcinomas, and therefore it may be considered an evidence of malignancy. Nuclear staining was not consistently associated with malignant neoplasm and should not be a marker for cancer, until more data are available. Cytoplasmic predominance expression of galectin-3 has been related to progression of normal tissue to adenoma and carcinoma in the colon carcinoma model Our data and previous studies suggest that the same pattern of cellular staining can be used with thyroid neoplasm.

Galectin-3 may play an important role in malignant transformation, especially in cell adherence and metastasis. Several works have associated this molecule with metastasis capability 26, 27 and malignant transformation 30, Our work supports previous findings that this immunodiagnostic method is a simple, cheap and important diagnostic support in distinguishing malignant and benign thyroid neoplasm.

Thyroid Nodules: Biopsy Results & Treatment Recommendations

Before application of this method on cytological samples, histological data should be gathered for knowledge of diagnosis statistics. The immunocytochemical method is preferred to other molecular biology-based methods. Because of constitutional stromal expression of galectin-3, methods like immunoblotting show false-positive results Morphological evaluation associated with immunocytostaining with galectin-3 should be the best approach for presurgical evaluation for thyroid nodules.
