Neutrophil-to-Lymphocyte Ratio (NLR)

Neutrophils ( 10^3/ul) :
Lymphocytes ( 10^3/ul) :

A predictor of mortality independent of CTP and MELD scores in patients with liver cirrhosis.

Formula :

( Neutrophils / Lymphocytes )

Explanation of Result :

Patients with NLR of at least 2.72 had a significantly lower survival.

* Please verify all calculations prior to clinical use.
