Özet

Objective Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a chronic liver disease and assessment of liver fibrosis is important. We aimed to investigate the performance of red cell volume distribution width-to-platelet ratio (RPR) in predicting liver fibrosis in patients with NAFLD and to compare it with well-known noninvasive predicting fibrosis scores (alanine aminotransferase ratio, aspartate aminotransferase platelet ratio index, fibrosis index, fibrosis 4, and fibrosis, cirrhosis index).
