Abstract

Introduction: Platelet-lymphocyte ratio (PLR), neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), mean platelet volume (MPV) and red-cell distribution width (RDW) have recently been evaluated as the new and simple inflammatory markers in systemic inflammation. In this study, we aimed to investigate whether PLR, NLR, MPV, RDW, and C-Reactive Protein (CRP) levels can help to diagnose the acute, subacute and chronic cholecystitis.
