Hi XXXXXXX

There is usually fat in the center of kidney known as medullary fat and outer part is slightly blackish. If outer part has increased fat then the then it looks hazy.

Similar condition can be seen in renal diseases like renal parenchymal disease, in which serum creatinine and blood urea will increase.

Your blood and urine reports are normal so you need not to worry.USG report is just a normal variant. In addition, few drops of blood may be a transient event. No further evaluation is needed.

Hope you have got answer for your query. Do let me know if you have more concerns.

Thanking you.
