Blood in urine: First make sure that the blood is not from the vagina. If it's not, blood in urine is abnormal and calls for evaluation of both the kidneys and the urinary bladder.

White cell casts in the urine establish the diagnosis, and if there's white cells in the urine and flank pain and fever, the presumptive diagnosis is kidney infection, imaging or no. ...Read more
