Introduction: Platelet indices such as the mean platelet volume (MPV) and platelet distribution width (PDW) have been reported to have a diagnostic value in some cancer types and inflammatory diseases. In this study, the platelet indices and serum lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) levels were investigated in children with reactive lymph node hyperplasia and lymphoma.
