Abstract Differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC) is a rare tumor with a relatively good prognosis, but in about 10\% of cases it may be the cause of death. Papillary carcinoma is more frequent (about 70-80\% of cases) and less aggressive than follicular cancer: the papillary/follicular ratio is increased in areas of high iodine intake. In recent years many genes have been found to be mutated in DTC, the most important of these being ras, ret, trk, and met. The relationship between radiation exposure and DTC is well recognized, especially in children. Since the Chernobyl nuclear accident, a high incidence of DTC has been found in children exposed to fallout.
