Scatter plots showing the correlation between the NLR and cortisol levels in the CS group. (a) NLR vs. 8 am serum cortisol concentration. (b). NLR vs. 24-hour urinary cortisol. (c) NLR vs. 8 am serum cortisol after 1 mg DST. and values were determined by Spearman’s correlation analysis. . Abbreviations: NLR: neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio; CS: Cushing’s syndrome; DST: dexamethasone suppression test.
