Urethritis/Chlamydia: Leukocytes mean that there is inflammatory process.Positive nitrite test is positive when there is urinary infection due to gram negative bacteria.
Urine positive for Leukocytes and neg nitrite in men can be due to Chlamydia infection in urethra
It is important to establish the diagnosis as your sexual partner also needs to be treated with antibiotics.
