What Do Loaded Pus Cells Indicate In A Newborn?
Please provide further details
Thanks for asking on this platform,
I would like to know the specifics on which the specimen the test is showing loaded pus cells(multiple pus cells)...
Fever is a common association with pus collection anywhere in the body including urine, however, it's like that pus cells can be there without fever too.
An antibiotic treatment should be given depending on the site. Please let me know the type of specimen, why the test was performed and associated symptoms, if any so that I better able to help you out.
Don't worry, watch for symptoms and continue the medication
Thanks for the details
I have gone through the details and would like to continue the antibiotic as prescribed by your doctor.The report is suggestive of urinary infection and unless there is any complication most of the time it improves with oral medication.
I won't get overly worried if there are no associated symptoms like fever,blood in urine, dribbling of urine or retention of urine.
Observe for the above symptoms along with feeding behaviour and general activity and if you notice any abnormality please consult your pediatrician for detailed evaluation and management accordingly.
As per age based recommendation baby should go for ultrasound examination of kidney, ureter and urinary bladder to find any underlying kidney disorder.
Even when baby is asymptomatic, one repeat urinary test should also be done after a week of antibiotic to see the response.
I hope this helps.
Wishing for your baby's good health.
