Hi welcome to HealthcareMagic

Positive epithelial cells means presence of epithlial cells in the Urine,
Normal range is 5 to 7 cell/ HPF.. these cells are lining layer of the ureter, urinary bladder, and PCT, DCT,loops of kidney... These cell will be normally present in urine... due to normal shedding of cells due to aging...

Take care...
