Three cases of papillary carcinoma of thyroid - tall cell variant (PTC-TCV) diagnosed by FNAC are reported. All three patients were females between 26 and 42 years of age. Two patients had nodules in the right lobe of thyroid and one in the left lobe. In addition to the usual cytologic features of papillary carcinoma, these cases exhibited features such as presence of tall cells lying singly or in the form of rows of three to five cells. The height of cells exceeded twice the width. Mitotic figures were not increased. Histopathologic correlation was available in the first case. Follow up data was not available in any of the three cases.
