While reading planstats.sgml, I encounted a sentence which I don't

    These numbers are current as of the last <command>VACUUM</> or
    <command>ANALYZE</> on the table.  The planner then fetches the
    actual current number of pages in the table (this is a cheap operation,
    not requiring a table scan).  If that is different from
    <structfield>relpages</structfield> then
    <structfield>reltuples</structfield> is scaled accordingly to
    arrive at a current number-of-rows estimate.  In this case the value of
    <structfield>relpages</structfield> is up-to-date so the rows estimate is
    the same as <structfield>reltuples</structfield>.

I don't understand the last sentence (In this case...). For me it
seems it is talking about the case when replages is not different from
what the planner fetches from the table. If so, why "In this case"?
Isn't "In this case" referrers to the previous sentence (If that is
different from...)? Maybe "In this case" should be "Otherwise" or some
