Revised American Thyroid Association Guidelines for the Management of Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma: The American Thyroid Association Guidelines Task Force on Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma

This is a clinical practice guideline for the diagnosis and management of medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) in both pediatric and adult patients. Recommendations are organized by sections that include: ethical considerations for genetic screening, surgical treatment, treatment of patients with hormonally active metastases, and hormone replacement. Although the guideline group acknowledges that there has been significant advances in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with MTC, they close with a statement around the fact that there is critical need for more effective therapies for patients with advanced MTC.
