Table 5 General histologic results of eosinophilic and non-eosinophilic CRSwNP subgroups

From: Local eosinophils are associated with increased IgA subclass levels in the sinonasal mucosa of chronic rhinosinusitis with polyp patients

  1. Values are expressed as median (IQR). Mann-Whitney U test was used for unpaired comparisons
  2. CRSsNP Chronic rhinosinusitis without nasal polyps, ENP Eosinophilic chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps, N-ENP Non-eosinophilic chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps
  3. P < 0.05 was considered statistically significant. Italic P values show significant results (<0.05)
