Italian term or phrase: esito vs. esiti
Dear Colleagues:
In translating a number of research documents I have come into a discussion regarding the use of esito and esiti; for example: esiti/esito ecis. craniofaringioma. Apparently there is a difference in IT usage of esito vs. esiti in such an instance. The difference is not the fact of one being singular and the other form being plural. It's much more complicated, I think. Can anyone clarify the difference for me?
If you'd like, you can respond briefly on ProZ or in more detail to me at hvadney@mhcable.com.
Thanks very much!

Explanation:
I don't think there is actually any difference. The only thing here seems to be that several tests may be performed on one sample, ergo your "esito/esiti". However, I wouldn't read any additional meaning into this.
