Özet

Objective: As an indicator of variability in circulating erythrocyte size, red cell distribution width (RDW) is linked to chronic inflammation. The association of rheumatic heart valve stenosis and inflammation is also well-known. This study aimed to assess the relationship between RDW and presence and severity of rheumatic mitral valve stenosis (RMVS).
