We thank Kjetil Søreide and coauthors for their interesting comments. It is important to confirm our results, as they are reported in another recent publication, using another statistical analysis. Whatever the analysis, the association between a particular tumor pathway, MSI, and a specific number of isolated lymph nodes are of major interest as outlined by Berho and Wexner.1
