Introduction and Aim: Papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) constitutes more than 90% of newly emerging differentiated thyroid cancers. Lymph node metastasis is often seen in PTC. There is a high risk of central metastasis in the presence of clinicopathological factors such as extrathyroidal extension, multifocatity and lymphovascular invasion. The aim of this study is to evaluate the clinicopathological features that are effective in the development of lymph node metastasis.
