BACKGROUND: Infections and sepsis remain the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in secondary peritonitis. Clinicians are still challenged with the task of finding an early and reliable diagnosis of septic complications. The role of inflammatory markers (Procalcitonin (PCT), C-reactive Protein (CRP) and thyroid hormones in determining the severity of secondary peritonitis was evaluated in this study.
