Infant having fever result of immunization. Tubular epithelial cells in urine. Consulted pediatrician and Neohrologist. Consult specialist?

I took my 9 week old son to the emergency room last night because of a fever. The fever was a result of him getting his 2 month immunizations earlier that day. While running test, they found Renal Tubular Epithelial Cells in his urine. The ER doctors consulted a pediatrician and he recommended we get in to see a Nephrologist this week. He is urinating fine and eating regularly. His blood work also came back normal. What is the cause of these Renal Tubular Cells, and should we see a specialist right away? What should I expect at our visit?

dear user
as per your daughter lab report first there is no any association in between vaccination and presence of epithelial cell in urine .
9 week old child means receive DPT , HEP B , HIB , OPV. among these DPT vaccine causes fever , but usually fever get subside with paracetamol only in 2-3 days .

no need to worry at all .
if fever is high grade and lasting long than cause might be other , than u need all blood test . and few epithelial cells in urine and if no pus cell no other abnormality means this is normal one . occasionally few epithelial cell can comes .

if fever persist consult to your doctor
