I had a blood test and urine test. Everything was normal , but my urine test showed leukocyte esterase said small (1+) (negative )a . I took another one he said 99% it will be fine. I'm freaking out.

Not to worry: The urine dip test is only a screening test. In women, it is not unusual to find a small quantity of leukocyte esterase in the urine which can be from vaginal contamination. A urine culture is the definitive test for urinary tract infection. In the worst case scenario if you culture is positive, a short course of antibiotic is usually all that is needed to cure it. ...Read more

Normal blood count with blood smear leukocyte; particles of toxic granulation, atypical cells lenfomo nuclear, one cell view of downey. Male, 58 ?

Typical cell: This is a typical cell type (both the lymphocytes with toxic granulation and the Downey cell, which similar is a lymphocyte with features consistent with activation). These occur in the context of infection or stress when the lymphocytes are receiving "danger" signals. Can't comment conclusively without knowing more about the clinical situation, but not likely something that needs follow up. ...Read more

How do i get a high white blood count in my urine but test negative for nitrites and leukocyte esterase?

How do i get a high white blood count in my urine but test negative for nitrites and leukocyte esterase?

UA results: Nitrites indicate bacterial abundance. If negative, then very low grade infection or no infection exists. Leuk esterase indicates leukocyte enzyme release, reflecting battling leukocytes. If neg, then no leuk attack present, or very low grade. So --- leukocytes without infection do appear in urine from interstitial nephritis , usually allergic, or from interstitial cystitis, usually of unknown ...Read more

Daughter 5 yrs tested for a uti all came back negative had moderate leukocyte always find white blood cells do cultures come back neg any ideas why?

Daughter 5 yrs tested for a uti all came back negative had moderate leukocyte always find white blood cells do cultures come back neg any ideas why?

YES...: Analysis of the urine can suggest infection but not confirm a UTI. Culture is best. Culture will not be positive if infection due to viruses or if inflammation is of a non infectious origin. Presence of WBCs do not always signal an infection. If your daughter has persistence of WBC especially if symptomatic I will be very glad to help you troubleshoot that. Take care! ...Read more
