Introduction: Obstructive Sleep Apnea syndrome (OSA) is the most serious consequence of adenoid hypertrophy (AH) and it is one of the most common reasons of nocturnal hypoxia in children. There is some information about the relationship between childhood OSA and atherosclerosis or cardiac diseases. In this study, we evaluated the relationship between, neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and AH which is the most frequent cause leading OSA in children.
