Synopsis: 
This study evaluated the neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio for differentiating organic dyspepsia from functional dyspepsia, and found that neutrophil/ lymphocyte ratio was higher in organic dyspepsia patients. Even higher levels were detected in patients with gastric cancer, compared with peptic ulcer disease.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Dyspepsia, one of the most commonly seen symptoms, can be due to organic dyspepsia (OD) or functional dyspepsia (FD). The aim of this study is to evaluate neutrophil-tolymphocyte ratio (NLR) for the predictability of OD due to peptic ulcer disease (PUD) and gastric cancer (GC).
