Background/aim: In the preoperative period, simple methods to identify the tumor stage of colorectal cancer patients are needed. In recent years, the neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has been used as a predictive parameter for systemic inflammatory response in many different clinical entities. This study aims to determine if the NLR predicts the tumor stage in colorectal cancer patients in the preoperative period.
