Hi,

The most important test when he gets urine infection next time is urine culture- only this can confirm urine infection. Pus cells usually suggests urine infection, but can occur in other conditions as well.

Repeated UTI anyhow needs investigations to look for any urinary tract abnormalities and status of kidneys. Ultrasound is the first step- so kindly get it done as your doctor suggested.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr. Muhammed Aslam TK
