Table 6 Comparisons of Groups A and B regarding the κ/λ deviation ratio of Ig light chain

From: Characteristics and natural course of hypoechoic thyroid lesions diagnosed as possible thyroid lymphomas by fine needle aspiration cytology

κ/λ deviation ratio Group A Group B Total
≥3.40 24 1 25
< 3.40 17 11 28
Total 41 12 53
  1. The κ/λ deviation ratio of < 3.40 was significantly more frequent in Group B compared to Group A (p < 0.01, chi-square test (with Yate’s continuity correction)). When the κ/λ deviation ratio was lower than 1.00, we converted it to the λ/κ ratio (deviation ratio)
