Background and aim: Carbon monoxide poisoning is a toxicological emergency that causes neurological complications. High serum neurogranin can be detected in acute or chronic conditions where brain tissue is damaged. This study aimed to investigate the diagnostic value of serum neurogranin level and its role in demonstrating neurological damage in patients admitted to the emergency department with carbon monoxide poisoning.
