Dear Editor,

We read the publication on “Evaluation of Thyroid Lesions by Fine-needle Aspiration (FNA) Cytology according to Bethesda System and its Histopathological Correlation” with a great interest.[1] Nandedkar et al. concluded that “reviewing the thyroid FNAs with the Bethesda system for reporting allowed precise cytological diagnosis.[1]” In fact, there are several factors that affect the diagnostic property of FNA. The common forgotten problem is the pre- and postanalytical errors that are common in laboratory medicine.[2] To promote the success in diagnosis, the quality control should stats from patient preparation through specimen collection, analytic process, and interpretation of results. Nandedkar et al. might forget to mention those pre- and postanalytical quality control methods for thyroid lesion FNA.
