Duodenal Rare Neuroendocrine Tumor: Clinicopathological Characteristics of Patients with Gangliocytic Paraganglioma

Table 4

Comparison of rate of lymph node metastasis in patients with gangliocytic paraganglioma focusing on tumor size (30 mm).

Tumor size is within 30 mmTumor size is larger than 30 mm

Total number of patients15629
Number of patients with lymph node metastasis169
Number of patients without lymph node metastasis14020
Rate of lymph node metastasis10.3% (16/156)31.0% (9/29)
Statistical analysisSignificant difference was found
( test, )

Significant difference was found between them ( test, ). This fact indicated that GP larger than 30 mm is significant risk factor of lymph node metastasis in gangliocytic paraganglioma.
