Özet

Objective: White coat hypertension (WCH) is characterized by blood pressure, which is high in the outpatient clinic and normal either on ambulatory blood pressure (BP) monitoring or home BP monitoring. In this study, our objective was to investigate the effects of obesity on end organ damage and the correlation between body mass index (BMI) and end organ damage caused by WCH.
