Özet

Aim: Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) is a chronic autoimmune thyroid disease in which genetic and environmental factors play a role in the etiology. In addition, it remains the leading cause of hypothyroidism throughout the world. The neutrophilllymphocyte ratio (NLR) is a cheap, simple measurement that can be used to indicate systemic inflammation associated with this disease.
