  • Clark DP, Faquin WC. Thyroid Cytopathology. Springer 2005, ISBN 9780387233048,  This small book is the only cytology book that the reviewer has found that gives colour illustratrations of the full range of lesions seen in thyroid FNA. For this reason it is a must-have for any cytologist practising thyroid FNA.
