Hurthle cell carcinoma is a rare type of Differentiated Thyroid Cancer (DTC), accounting for only 5% of all cases of DTC . In 2017, the World Health Organization reclassified the Hurthle cell variant of follicular thyroid carcinoma as a distinct type, due to its different histopathological characteristics from follicular thyroid carcinoma. This reclassification was supported by recent discoveries in molecular characteristics through genetic sequencing tests. Despite these advances, the behavior of Hurthle cell carcinoma and adenoma remains unpredictable. In this paper, we present a short literature review of Hurthle cell neoplasms.
