Background:Sepsis is a life-threatening organ dysfunction and the leading cause of death in critically ill patients. The use of biomarkers and scoring systems is an attempt to assist in the diagnosis and assessing the severity of multi-organ dysfunction. C-reactive protein (CRP), procalcitonin (PCT), and the currently reported marker are endocan. Endocan is a biomarker for multiorgan dysfunction in sepsis. Endocan synthesis and release are triggered by proinflammatory cytokineswhich can increase endocan levels in sepsis while the Sequential (Sepsis-related) Organ Failure Assessment (SOFA) is a scoring method for identifying organ dysfunction in sepsis. A SOFA score ≥2 indicates organ dysfunction. Endocan and SOFA scores are both aimed at assessing multiorgan dysfunction and can determine the prognosis in sepsis. This study aims to determine the suitability of endocan levels with SOFA values in septic patients at Dr.WahidinSudirohusodoHospital Makassar.
Purpose: To determine the suitability of SOFA values with endocan levels in septic patients at the Dr.WahidinSudirohusodoHospital and its network hospital.
Methods: This cross-sectional observational study was conducted from December 2019-August 2020. The population of this study was all sepsis patients in the hospital. 
WahidinSudirohusodo. Data were analyzed descriptively. The compatibility of endocan levels with SOFA values in septic patients used the Spearman correlation test.
Results: From a total of 150 subjects, it was found that patients <60 years were 45 subjects (80.04%), men were 34 subjects (60.7%), patients with 2 comorbid were 21 subjects (37.5%), the mean Endocan levels were 361.9 ± 472.4 with tertileendocan 1 (<110.0) as many as 19 subjects (33.9%) and tertile 3 (> 232.0) as many as 19 subjects (33.9%) while SOFA scores Mean 5.6 ± 3.7 with SOFA scores 0-6 as many as 36 subjects (64.3%). The endocan level in sepsis was significantly lower than the control, namely 361.9 (p <0.01). Based on the Spearman correlation test, it was found that there was a significant negative correlation between endocan levels and the SOFA score (p <0.05). In women, there was a significant negative correlation between endocan levels and SOFA scores (p <0.05), at age <60 years, there was a significant negative correlation between endocan levels and SOFA scores (p <0.05). with the number of comorbid 1, there was a significant negative correlation between endocan levels and the SOFA score (p <0.05).
Conclusion: There is a significant negative correlation between endocan levels and SOFA score in septic patients at Dr.WahidinSudirohusodo Makassar.
