We calculate the exact statistical characterization of the accumulated polarization-dependent loss (PDL) of an optical communication system. The results hold for any value of the PDL and, in the limit of low PDL, they agree with the approximate statistical description already reported in a previous letter. In particular, it is shown that the mean PDL grows at most linearly with the distance.
