To the Editor: In their Clinical Practice article on microscopic hematuria (June 5 issue), Cohen and Brown recommend a course of action that adheres to neither the recommendations of the American Academy of Family Physicians nor those of the American Urological Association. The diagnosis of microscopic hematuria, when it is not associated with a urinary tract infection or proteinuria, requires a referral to a urologist. Prospective, controlled trials of the standard urologic evaluation may alter current practice, but these trials have not yet been performed. Until data are available on which to base a firm recommendation, a change Full Text of this Article

This is the website for Georgia Urology, the largest private urology practice inthe United States.
Hematuria (bloody urine) is a common sign and symptom that may be encountered by any person regardless of age (Table 1). It is a danger signal that cannot be ignored. The passage of blood-stained urine may be the first sign of serious disease in the urinary tract, and a single episode of hematuria warrants urologic investigation. (Table 1) Table 1, The Most Common Causes of Hematuria by Age and Sex 0-20 Years Acute glomerulonephritis
Acute urinary tract infection

Gross hematuria is evident to the naked eye and microscopic is demonstrable under the microscope. The degree of hematuria (micoscopic vs gross hematuria) does not correlate with seriousiness of the disease (i.e. tumor).

Male Urinary Tract In women, blood may appear to be in the urine when it is actually coming from the vagina . Similarly, in men, the urethra carries both urine and semen out of the body and what may be mistaken for urinary bleeding is sometimes a bloody ejaculation, usually due to a prostate problem. Furthermore, discoloration from certain drugs or foods (such as beets) can mimic blood in the urine.

Collect a "clean-catch" (midstream) urine sample. To obtain a clean-catch sample, men or boys should wipe clean the head of the penis . Women or girls need to wash the area between the lips of the vagina with soapy water and rinse well. As you start to urinate, allow a small amount to fall into the toilet bowl (this clears the urethra of contaminants). Then, in a clean container, catch about 1 to 2 ounces of urine and remove the container from the urine stream. Give the container to the health care provider or assistant.

Peer Review Status: Internally Peer Reviewed (1) Hematuria Strenuous exercise, urinary tract instrumentation, and menstruation may induce hematuria, and therefore, evaluations for microscopic hematuria should be performed greater than 48 hours after exercise or instrumentation, or 2 weeks after menses to obtain the most accurate results. Urinalyses positive for blood on dipstick must be followed by a quantitative microscopic examination for red blood cells, as false positive results can occur in normal states as well as patients with myoglobinuria. (2) Differential Diagnosis The differential diagnosis for hematuria is large, and includes conditions such as UTIs (most common), urolithiasis, renal or urothelial tumors, trauma, hemangiomas or arterio-venous malformations, glomerulonephritis (commonly in association with significant proteinuria), strictures, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), or urethritis. (3) Hematuria evaluation Annual urinalysis and cytologies should follow negative evaluations for 3 years. If no progression of hematuria or positive cytologies occur, the evaluation is finished. For recurrent or worsening hematuria, a complete repeat work up in indicated.

New Treatments for Hematuria
Hematuria is a frequent abnormal finding in the genitourinary system, second only to urinary tract infection. The prevalence of microscopic hematuria among school-aged children is 0.4-2.1%; however, the presence of hematuria alone is rarely indicative of serious illness bloody urine. Pathophysiology of Hematuria Blood in the urine is usually first detected with a dipstick test, which reacts with hemoglobin. A reaction greater than 1+ is considered positive hemateria The dipstick is not a test for red blood cells (RBCs); therefore, the dipstick screen must be followed by microscopic examination of the urine to confirm the presence of RBCs (hematuria). Microscopic hematuria is defined as six or more RBCs per high-power field in a fresh, urine sediment specimen. Two significant causes of a positive dipstick and a negative microscopic examination are free hemoglobin from hemolysis and myoglobinuria from rhabdomyolysis. Certain drugs and toxins also can cause red urine

    Microscopic hematuria: more than 5 red blood cells per high power field in the sediment from 10 mL of centrifuged freshly voided urine. Gross hematuria (visible to the naked eye): may originate from the kidney (may contain red blood cell casts, and is usually brown) or from the bladder and urethra (pink urine, may contain clots). Recurrent gross hematuria Recurrent episodes which usually develop 1-2 days after the onset of a viral upper respiratory tract infection. It resolves over 1-2 weeks, but microscopic hematuria may persist. Biopsy is recommended after the second episode. Underlying diseases: IgA nephropathy (Berger nephropathy)
    Idiopathic hematuria
    Familial nephritis (Alport syndrome)
    Idiopathic hypercalciuria
    Berger nephropathy: IgA is the predominant immunoglobulin in mesangial deposits. It affects most commonly males than females (2:1); patients present with gross or microscopic hematuria. Progressive disease develops in 30% of patients. The development of hypertension, diminished renal function or proteinuria > 1 g/ 24 h indicate a poor prognosis. Idiopathic hematuria: the diagnosis is established by normal findings on biopsy. Long term follow up is necessary to exclude Alport syndrome. The development of diminished renal function, proteinuria or hypertension demands a second biopsy.

    (blood in the urine)
    from the US National Institute of Health
    Hematuria is the presence of red blood cells (RBCs) in the urine. [Some people misspell it as hemoturia .] In microscopic hematuria, the urine appears normal to the naked eye, but examination under a microscope shows a high number of RBCs. Gross hematuria can be seen with the naked eyethe urine is red or the color of cola.
    Several conditions can cause hematuria. Most of the causes are not serious. For example, exercise may cause hematuria that goes away in 24 hours. Many people have hematuria without having any other related problems. But because hematuria may be the result of a tumor or other serious problem, a doctor should be consulted.
    In order to find the cause of hematuria, or to rule out certain causes, the doctor may order a series of tests, including urinalysis, blood tests, intravenous pyelogram, and cystoscopic examination.
    Urinalysis is the examination of urine for various cells and chemicals. In addition to finding RBCs, the doctor may find white blood cells that signal a urinary tract infection or casts (groups of cells molded together in the shape of the kidneys' tiny filtering tubes) that signal kidney disease. Excessive protein in the urine also signals poor kidney function.
    Blood tests may reveal kidney disease if the blood contains high levels of wastes that the kidneys are supposed to remove.

    Medical Conditions: Hematuria
    In short, hematuria is the presence of blood in the urine, visible to the naked eye or only under a microscope. Hematuria is an indication of a problem in the urinary tract that is causing bleeding, and affects about 10% of men and women. There are two types of hematuria; microscopic hematuria, where the presence of blood can only be identified under a microscope, and gross hematuria, where the urine is colored pink or red from large amounts of blood.
    There are several diseases that cause hematuria, such as:
    - Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (enlarged prostate) - Kidney / bladder stones - Urinary Tract Infections - Physical trauma of the urinary tract - Medications
    Once the cause of the bleeding is identified, appropriate treatment can be chosen, such as the use of antibiotics for urinary tract infections. Some hematuria have no known cause, and so no treatment may be prescribed, though evaluation is necessary as hematuria may be caused by a life threatening disease.
