Synopsis: 
Although platelets are known to participate actively in both allergic and non-allergic types of inflammation, the mean platelet volume cannot be used as an indicator of inflammation in children with allergic rhinitis.

 ABSTRACT

Objective: The mean platelet volume (MPV) is a potential marker of platelet reactivity. Increased MPV levels are shown to be the predictors of inflammations. The aim of this study was to investigate whether MPV is an inflammatory indicator in children with allergic rhinitis.
