AB  - OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to investigate whether there is a relationship
      between red blood cell distribution width, mean platelet volume and epistaxis in 
      children. METHODS: Between January 2015 and July 2016, 105 children who were
      referred to our clinic with epistaxis and 100 sex- and age-matched controls were 
      retrospectively analyzed. Red blood cell distribution width (RDW) and mean
      platelet volume (MPV) values were determined in both groups. RESULTS: RDW values 
      were found significantly (P < 0.05) lower in the group with epistaxis than in the
      control group (11.95 +/- 1.31 vs. 12.74 +/- 1.21). MPV was 7.49 +/- 1.33 in the
      group with epistaxis and 7.23 +/- 1.06 in the control group, and there was no
      significant difference between the groups (p > 0.05). CONCLUSION: We found no
      difference between MPV values of both groups and significantly lower RDW values
      in children with epistaxis. Decreased RDW values were considered as an
      accompanying marker rather than a result of epistaxis. In addition, it may be
      thought that low RDW values may increase the bleeding tendency by disrupting the 
      thrombotic activities. Further studies are needed to validate the relation of
      these parameters with epistaxis and its mechanisms.
