Abstract

Background/aim: It is accepted that red blood cell distribution width (RDW) is a novel prognostic marker that reflects oxidative stress and chronic inflammation. In this study, we aimed to investigate the correlation between RDW and varicocele, the etiology of which has not fully elucidated yet. This study also aimed to study the mean platelet volume (MPV) values of the patient and control group.
