Many studies have found correlations between abnormal MPV and clinical reactivity in a variety of diseases. In the present paper, we sought MPV-related neurological diseases that are less frequently reported in the literature. The electronic medical records of 852 neurological patients with mean platelet volume (MPV) measurements (F=45%, age=55.7±18.7, 8-104) were searched after the patients had received a diagnosis of a neurological disease (new and old episodes) according to the nine classes of the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, 10th revision (ICD-10). A set of consecutive statistical methods (i.e., cluster analysis, segmented regression, linear correlation, propensity score matching, and mixed effects Poisson regression) were used to establish a link between MPV and neurological disease. A statistically significant (p<0.05) relationship with MPV was found only in pain syndrome patients, with seven out of eight clinically diagnosed migraine episodes. With all other ICD-10 classes of neurological diseases, the effect of MPV was found to be nonsignificant (p>0.05). MPV may implicate a clinical relationship with pain syndrome and migraine episodes. More complex statistics could help analyse data and find new correlations.
