dc.description.abstract Aims Hemogram parameters in routine blood panels have been proposed as inflammation markers. These parameters, especially the red cell distribution width (RDW) and mean platelet volume (MPV), were evaluated as surrogate inflammatory markers in brain tumor patients. We aimed to observe RDW and MPV values of tumor patients and compare to those in healthy population. Methods We recorded white blood cell count, neutrophil count, lymphocyte count, hemoglobin, hematocrit, RDW, platelet count, and MPV of the study group at the time of diagnosis and compared to those of the control subjects. Results The RDW was significantly elevated in study group compared to that of the control subjects (p = 0.001). The MPV was significantly lower in study group than that of the control group (p = 0.01). Conclusion Decreased MPV and increased RDW were both associated with brain tumor. However, prospective studies with larger sample sizes are needed to support the results and expose MPV and RDW variations between metastatic and primary brain tumors. © 2016 Polish Neurological Society
