A 29-year-old male asked:
Can 2-3/hpf pus cells and 0-1 /hpf rbc in urine cause fever? have burning sensation after urination.

Not likely, but:: The amount of pus cells (wbc) and rbc are normal for a voided urine. Almost all patients with a urinary tract infection will show a large number of WBC in a spun sample. So your result suggests something other than a urinary tract infection is causing fever.
Nevertheless, I suggest that your Dr. repeat the U/A and do a urine culture in order to be certain that you don't have a kidney infection
