Figure 3

Temporal course of serum creatinine in patients with hantavirus infection, stratified according to (A) platelet count and (B) leukocyte count at initial evaluation. Platelet count, but not leukocyte count, is a significant predictor of subsequent renal failure (p = 0.004, Mann-Whitney). Box plots with median, interquartile range, minimum and maximum values are shown. n.s., not significant; WBC, leukocyte count.
