Background: Among all the endocrine disorders, thyroid disorders are the most common in India. The present study was conducted to study histopathological neoplastic lesions of thyroid. Materials & Methods: The present study was conducted on 214 specimens of thyroid received in last 6 months in the department. General information such as name, age, gender etc. was recorded. USG findings, clinical features and gross features of specimens were obtained. Staining was performed with hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) stain. Results: Out of 214 cases, 102 specimens were from males and 112 from females. Age group 20-30 years had 56 lesions, 30-40 had 52, 40-50 had 44, 50-60 had 34 and >60 had 28 lesions. The difference was significant (P< 0.05). Common histopathological lesions were follicular adenoma seen in 46, papillary carcinoma in 68, follicular carcinoma in 56, medullary carcinoma in 34 and hurthle cell adenoma in 10 cases. Conclusion: Common lesions were seen such as papillary carcinoma and follicular carcinoma. Age group 20-30 years and 30-40 years exhibited higher number of lesions.
