Asymptomatic microscopic or gross hematuria.
2 gray top tubes of 4 mL midstream or catheterized urine.
Note: 8 mL midstream urine in yellow top tube required for urinary analysis.
AUA guidelines suggest upon the discovery of hematuria, an assessment of the asymptomatic microhematuria patient should include:
- A careful history, physical examination, and laboratory examination to rule out causes of asymptomatic microhematuria such as infection
- Once the benign causes have been ruled out, the presence of asymptomatic microhematuria should prompt a urologic evaluation1
Guidance Hematuria is designed to assist in ruling out or ruling in an infectious cause for hematuria.
