Pediatrician 's  Response
Dear user,

The presence of both RBCs and WBCs in urine may indicate the passing of blood, or an illness of the urinary tract such as an inflammation, an infection, stones, or other problems that are rare. There is some leakage from the kidneys of your son, as he is also passing protein. The most likely illness he had was a glomerulonephritis. Even if the urine looks better, you should take him to a pediatrician to look for other problems such as a high blood pressure, body swelling, etc. that occur with this illness.
