Özet

OBJECTIVE: The coagulopathies that present with COVID-19 are thrombotic microangiopathy and disseminated intravascular coagulopathy (DIC). Procalcitonin (PCT) levels have been shown to be significantly increased in COVID-19 patients in comparison with healthy subjects/asymptomatic coronavirus-positive patients. In this report, our aim was to assess the associations of the PCT level with DIC and the severity of COVID-19 infection.
