Abstract

 

The aim of this study was to assess neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) as a prognostic factor in adult patients with bacterial meningitis. A retrospective, controlled and single center study was conducted between September 2013 and August 2019 after obtaining the required permission from Namik Kemal University, Research and Application Hospital Management. After the statistical calculation of the data obtained from the cases, the findings were systematically evaluated in the light of the literature. The results were found to be consistent with the literature. However, these results are from a retrospectively designed study carried out in a single center with a small sample group. Therefore, in order to crosscheck these results, it is urgent that they be confirmed through multi-centered and prospective studies with more cases involving each race and gender.

Keywords: Bacterial meningitis, Cerebrospinal fluid, Neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio, Procalcitonin
