Özet

Purpose: Preoperative neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), platelet-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) and lymphocyte-monocyte ratio (LMR) are recognized as prognostic markers of grade of gliomas. The aim of this study was to determine whether preoperative levels of NLR, PLR, and LMR differ between low-and high-grade gliomas.
