Table 2 Comparison of the differences in centrosome amplification between benign breast lesions and breast carcinomas

From: Analysis of the cellular centrosome in fine-needle aspirations of the breast

  Cases with numerical centrosome amplification Cases with structural centrosome amplification Cells with numerical centrosome amplification (%) Cells with structural centrosome amplification (%)
Benign tumor 23 (92) 3 (12) 2.77 ± 2.14 (2.40) 0.10 ± 0.29 (0.00)
Malignant tumor 75 (100) 69 (92) 4.86 ± 2.66 (4.50) 3.98 ± 3.21 (3.60)
P value 0.10 0.00 0.00 0.00a
  1. Data presented as n (%) or mean ± standard deviation (median). aOwing to a skewed distribution, the Mann–Whitney U-test was applied.
