Background/aim: The prognostic values of systemic inflammatory markers, neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR), and platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR) on overall survival (OS) of metastatic renal cell carcinoma patients (mRCC) treated with tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI) remain unclear. Thus, the present study aimed to investigate the prognostic impact of these markers on OS of mRCC patients.
