Objective: Platelets play an important role in the pathogenesis of disorders associated with the local or systemic inflammation. Mean platelet volume (MPV) is a marker for platelet activation, and larger platelets are more activated. In this study, we aimed to investigate MPV values in patients with Behcet's disease, patients with recurrent aphthous stomatitis, and controls.
