Can mean platelet volume be a novel predictive marker in patients with pelvic inflammatory disease?
In recent issue of ‘Wiener klinische Wochenschrift’, we have read the article entitled “May Mean Platelet Volume levels be a predictor in the diagnosis of pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)?” by Incebiyik et al. [ 1 ] with interest. The authors concluded that mean platelet volume (MPV) values were significantly decreased among patients with PID. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study assessing the relationship between MPV and PID. We would like to thank the authors for their valuable contribution. On the other hand, we would like to report few concerns about this study from a methodological point of view.
