Determination of hCG in sera of patients with diagnosed benign or malign diseases of the ovaries before surgery shown in boxplots. The boxes represent the range between the 25th and 75th percentiles with a horizontal line at the median. The bars delineate the 5th and 95th percentiles. The circle indicate values more than 1.5 box lengths, and the asterisk values more than 3.0 box lengths from the 75th percentile. Numbers at circle and asterisk indicate sample number. hCG levels were significantly lower in patients with benign compared to patients with malign diseases of the ovaries (p = 0.000).
