Urologist 's  Response
Pus cells in urine means infection of the urinary tract. However it is significant only if pus cells are more than 5/high power field. Since it is 2-4 in your case I think your infection has resolved. Presence of epithelial cells is also a normal finding as urinary tract shed some epithelial cells regularly which can be seen on microscopy. Even mucous threads are also normal as they are secreted by urethra in males and urethra and vagina in females. Haziness of urine could be because of mucous threads.
