Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is published monthly.

Abstract

Aim: The aim of this study was to determine whether there is any correlation between neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR), platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR) and acute phase reactants such as C-reaktive protein (CRP), erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) in patients with epicondylitis.
Material and Methods: Our study included 274 patients. 154 patients with epicondylitis constituted the epicondylitis group and 120 healthy individuals constituted the control group. Demographic data such as age, gender, and laboratory values such as NLR and PLR were analyzed retrospectively. Both groups were compared in terms of dermographic data, leukocyte, neutrophil, lymphocyte, platelet count, CRP, ESR, NLR and PLR.
Results: There was no significant differences between patient and control groups in term of demographic data such as height and weight, and laboratory values such as nuetrophil, lymphocyte, platelet, ESR and CRP (p>0,05 for all). Besides, no significant difference was found between the two groups in terms of NLR and PLR values (p>0,05 for both). There was a significant positive correlations between NLR or PLR and ESR or CRP values in the patient group (p0,001 for all).
Conclusions: In our study, no significant difference was found between NLR, PLR and other blood paramaters in patients with epicondylitis compared to those of controls. As a result, we determined that it is not meaningful to use these rates to show the presence of inflammation in epicondylitis pathogenesis, and there is no correlation between the severity of epicondylitis and these rates. There is a need for further studies with more patient numbers and clinical evaluation parameters.

Keywords: Lateral epicondylitis; medial epicondylitis; neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR); platelet to neutrophil ratio (PLR)
