Hello Claudia,
Pus cells in the urine of a 6 year BOY indicates urinary tract infection.
The infection requires urgent attention as its also showing RBC ( red blood cells)
He will require antibiotics.
If he is having repeated attacks get him evaluated for any structural problems in urinary tract or for any cause of lowered immunity
