Abstract

Purpose: Snake venom has serious cardiotoxic, neurotoxic, nephrotoxic effects. The neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is a new biomarker of inflammation and can be used as an indicator and prognositic marker of inflammation. In this study we aimed to analyze the association with clinical outcomes of pediatric patients with snakebite envenomation, and NLR.
