Hello,
Your daughter's urine test is suggestive of urinary tract infection. Normal urine does not have RBC. Upto 10 pus cells in an uncentrifuged sample and 5 pus cells in a centrifuged sample of urine is normal. However, it is best to not interpret Lab results by yourself without detailed clinical knowledge and clinical examination.
