Résumé

Medullary thyroid cancer (MTC) is characterized by early regional lymph node metastasis, the presence of which represents a critical obstacle to cure. At present no molecular markers have been successfully integrated into the clinical care of sporadic MTC. The present study was designed to evaluate TP53INP1 expression in MTC and to assess its ability to guide the surgeon to the optimal extent of surgery performed with curative intent.
