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 to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) for the predictability of organic dyspepsia due to peptic ulcer disease (PUD) and gastric cancer (GC).
