The neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has received much attention and was recently investigated as a potential novel biomarker for sepsis and is cheaper and faster than SOFA scores. The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between neutrophillymphocyte ratio (NLR) and SOFA scores as a parameter of organ dysfunction in septic patients admitted to the ICU of Haji Adam Malik (HAM) General Hospital Medan. Methods:This study is an analytic study with a casecontrol survey design that compares the NLR values in 25 septic patients (cases) and 25 patients without sepsis (controls) at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of HAM General Hospital Medan. Spearman correlation test was performed to find the relationship between NLR and SOFA scores and independent T test or Mann-Whitney test to examine differences between groups.

Keywords : Neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio, sepsis, SOFA score.
