Thank you for your query.

Pus cells of 8-16/HPF in urine is suggestive of urinary tract infection. If urine culture is sterile then urine should be examined and cultured for AFB which is a known cause for sterile pyuria.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your daughter an early recovery.
