Dear Ms

In case of non communicating type of kidney infection, the urine can be normal both grossly and microscopic.
When there is infection of kidney and it fails to communicate with collecting tubule or renal pelvis , the urine may be normal.

Do get back to me if you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.


Take care
