Objective: Neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio still has a limited clinical use due to many non-cancer factors affecting neutrophils or lymphocytes in the present time. We aimed to evaluate the association between preoperative neutrophillymphocyte ratio and poor prognostic factors after curative elective colorectal surgery.
