Neutrophil-Lymphocyte Ratio as an Initial Screening Biomarker for Differential Diagnosis of Cushing’s Syndrome from Nonfunctional Adenoma in Patients with an Adrenal Mass
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.
