Objective: Diabetic foot infections (DFI) is one of the most common and debilitating complications of diabetes. Mean platelet volume (MPV), which is reported routinely in complete blood count has been shown to be increased in patients with diabetes. Higher MPV values have also been shown to be related with increased risk of cardiovascular events and thrombosis. In this study we aimed to study MPV values in DFI during the acute stage and after treatment, and its relationship between inflammatory markers.
