Probably nothing: Epithelial cells are skin cells and cells that line hollow organs, like the urinary bladder and urethra. Epithelial cells seen on a urine analysis can be normal.

This can sabotage a good urine culture, and you might need to repeat it. (unless the culture was negative anyway). ...Read more
