Table 3 Comparisons between neoplastic follicles in PI-FL and control cases with intestinal reactive lymphoid hyperplasia

From: Density and size of lymphoid follicles are useful clues in differentiating primary intestinal follicular lymphoma from intestinal reactive lymphoid hyperplasia

  PI-FL (n = 17) Control (n = 17) p value
Diameter (μm) 756.9 (576.8–929.9) 479.7 (337.1–607.2) 0.001**
Distance from surface epithelia (μm) 104.7 (75.9–194.9) 177.8 (99.2–302.9) 0.056
Density (No./Surface area) 0.5 (0.3–0.7) 0.2 (0.1–0.3) 0.004**
  1. Mann-Whitney U test. Median (Q1-Q3). *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01
  2. Abbreviation: No. Number of follicles
