Özet

Introduction: Parkinson's disease is the second leading neurodegenerative disease worldwide; however, its pathogenesis remains unclear. Recently, the neuroinflammation theory, one of the theories explaining the pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease, has become prominent. We investigated the relationship between Parkinson's disease and inflammatory markers including epicardial adipose tissue thickness, neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio, and thrombocyte-lymphocyte ratio.
