Background: Differentiated thyroid carcinomas (DTC) account for most of the thyroid cancers. The emergence of DTC may be affected by various predisposing genetic alterations and environmental factors The aim of this study was to investigate the role of VEGF C936T and IL-8 A251T gene polymorphisms in the pathogenesis and metastasis of differentiated thyroid cancer.
