Thanks for writing to HCM

Pus cells in urine may be due to many reasons like UTI(urinary tract infection), kidney calculus,infection etc.
She need few more investigations like routine hemogram,Renal function test,Urine culture and sensitivity and Ultrasound of abdomen. Further investigations can be done if needed.
Ultrasound is very important for screening.
At present she need proper antibiotics after culture and sensitivity report.
She also need clinical correlation.

Hope i have answered your query.
Get well soon.
