==Overview==
 
A '''Hürthle cell''' (also known as '''Askanazy cell''') is an [[large cell|oncocytic cell]] in the thyroid that is often associated with [[Hashimoto's thyroiditis]] as well as [[follicular thyroid cancer]]. Hürthle cells are characterized as enlarged epithelial cells with abundant eosinophilic granular cytoplasm as a result of altered mitochondria.<ref name="Hurthle Cell Carcinoma">{{cite web|url=http://www.emedicine.com/med/topic1045.htm |title=Hurthle Cell Carcinoma |author=Aytug, Serhat |publisher=[[eMedicine]] |date=[[June 13]], 2006}}</ref> They generally stain pink and are prominently found in histological sections of thyroid glands affected with Hashimoto's.
 
 
 
A ''Hürthle cell adenoma'' is a well-differentiated type of follicular thyroid adenoma (benign tumor) that, in rare cases, has the potential to metastasize and become malignant (''Hürthle cell carcinoma'').
