Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Determining the severity of sarcoidosis is based on the clinical and radiological findings of the disease and the changes in pulmonary function test results. On the other hand; studies are ongoing for objective and easy markers in this respect. Neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is shown as a good prognostic marker for inflammation due to tissue damage in recent clinical trials. In this study, we aimed to identify the possible relationship between NLR and radiological extent of sarcoidosis.
