Abstract

The sensitivity and specificity of BRAF mutation in detecting PTC in FNA specimens with indeterminate diagnosis was 59.3 and 100%, respectively, while the positive and negative predictive values were 100 and 65.6%, respectively. The limited data supports the use of BRAF mutation analysis to predict the risk of malignancy in patients with indeterminate thyroid FNAs.
