Abstract

Objective: Although mortality and morbidity due to community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) decrease in childhood, parapneumonic effusion (PE) and empyema still emerge as an important problem. There are many studies related to platelet count and mean platelet volume (MPV) in CAP together with many inflammatory markers. In this study, the need for fibrinolytic therapy (FT) and its relationship with thrombocyte count and MPV in patients with CAP+PE was investigated.
