Statistical errors are frequently met in medical researches. They lead to incorrect conclusions and they are a major cause of failure of scientific papers. Statistical errors can be prevented by understanding how to choose the appropriate descriptive and analytic tests, acquiring knowledge about the common errors, inclusion of a statistician as a co-researcher, reviewing the research protocol by the Ethical Committee before starting the work and improving the ability of the journal reviewers to detect these errors.
