Özet

INTRODUCTION Mean platelet volume (MPV) is inversely correlated with inflammation in inflammatory bowel diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis as shown in the previous studies. It has been reported that elevated values of MPV are associated with cardiovascular diseases and stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). However, MPV values in acute exacerbation of COPD have not been investigated so far.
