Hello! Anyone can have haematuria but what is worrisome is that what the complete urine report indicates. So mere presence of RBCs in the urine doest not mean gross pathology.Your daughter's urine report shows no significant pus cells , epithelial cells or granular casts which suggest some renal pathology .Please don't panic as there are many factors that increase the chance of person having haematuria strenous exercise, menstruation, medications especially aspirin grop of drugs , antibiotics and so on. .
