Özet

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Red blood cell distribution width (RDW) elevation occurs in various inflammatory/infectious conditions. RDW levels during monitoring have not been investigated prospectively in community-acquired pneumonia (CAP). In CAP, the relationship between antibiotherapy response and RDW levels is unclear.
