Italian term or phrase: esito vs. esiti
In a set of clinical reports the terms "esito" and "esiti" occur in various descriptions of pathologies used apparently by the same investigator to mean different things. The client also has commented that "esito" and "esiti" as they occur in the reports do in fact mean different things (not simply singular and plural of the same word, "esito") and should be translated diffently (but they give no guidance).

I am baffled! Can anyone help???

Thanks,

Harold

English translation:esito="death"; esiti= "results; outcome"
Explanation:
A lot would depend on the context, but "esito" in the singular form in medicine can mean the fatal outcome after a long illness. I hope this helps.
