Abstract
Introduction and Hypothesis: We retrospectively evaluated the prognostic impact of neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) as a marker for inflammatory and immune state in men with prostate cancer.
Materials and Methods: This retrospective study was conducted in a single urology clinic to review the medical data of 558 patients who underwent transrectal prostate needle biopsies between 2007 and 2014. Prior to transrectal prostate needle biopsies, patient histories, physical examinations, and routine laboratory tests including blood biochemistry, urinaly- sis and urine cultures, free PSA and total PSA, rectal examination, transrectal ultrasound findings, and pathology results were evaluated.
Results: Benign biopsy results were found in 287 patients (Group 1) using neutrophil / lymphocyte (NLR) and platelet / lymphocyte ratio (PLR). When calculating malignancy in 271 patients (Group 2), there was no significantly difference in NLR and PLR values between benign and malign prostate diseases (p=0.14 and p=0.369, respectively).
Conclusion: With reference to the survey prior to the biopsy, NLR and PLR ratio values do not appear to be helpful in the differentiation of benign prostatic hyperplasia and prostate cancer.

Key words: Prostate cancer, lymphocytes, neutrophils
