Today with the increasing availability of monoclonal antibodies to many antigens it seems possible that conventional concepts of thyroid cancer might be replaced in the future by a new classification which allows a "typing" of thyroid neoplasms due to their different immunohistochemical behaviour (Klinck 1969). The commonly used immunohistochemical studies involve anti-thyroglobulin, anti-calcitonin and antiCEA stains. Fig. 9 shows typical examples of such pictures in follicular carcinoma and medullary carcinoma.

Winand, Kohn 1975) pictures can be obtained which are frequently impressive in their diagnostic impact (Fig. 11). The information gathered with such techniques underlines the facts reported previously: "Anaplastic" thyroid carcinomas can show "colloid droplets" as manifestations of functional properties, subcellular elements considered as typical of medullary carcinoma can be detected in "adeno-carcinomas" of the thyroid (Pfaltz et al. 1983) and some ultrastructural elements seen in thyroid cancer resemble those observed in benign thyroid disease (Dinstl, Keminger 1967).
