Thanks for being with us.

Pus cells of 1-3 ,RBC 0-2,amorphous urates,few epithelial cells and few mucous threads can be present in urine normally still urinary tract infection should ruled out in such cases by doing urine culture.

Mucus threads and epithelial cells have no clinical significance since they come from the terminal urethra.
This is a common finding in urine since the entire urine system is filled with mucus and epithelium.

If you have any symptoms of urinary tract infection like burning micturition,increased frequency of urination,fever,then you can go for urine culture and may need treatment for UTI with antibiotics like cefixime/amoxacillin according to the culture report.

You can consult with your treating doctor for clinical correlation.

Hope your query could have got cleared.

Wish you good health.

Hello and welcome to HCM.

Thank you for your query.

Although the presence of RBC, pus and epithelial cells in your urine indicate a possible urinary tract infection (UTI), but as these are all in very small quantities, the report will have to be clinically correlated and followed up with a urine culture examination.

Mucus threads also indicate the possibility of an infection or some other renal condition. Amorphous crystals need not be a worry as of now as they are rarely seen in your urine.

Please go about the above investigation under the supervision of a doctor, who you should visit to get treated accordingly.

I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications. I would gladly help you.

Best wishes.
