What does positive white blood cells and negative nitrites on the urine test mean?

More information. There is more information on a urinalysis that is needed to know what might be going on. Where there red blood cells, leukocyte esterase, etc? Also, why was the test performed in the first place. Please repost the question with more details. It may be that the specimen was not a 'clean catch' meaning it has some contamination and should be repeated.

Protein and white blood cells found in 10 yr old daughters urine test. What does this indicate?

Varies. This can vary from being normal to a reflection of a kidney issue depending on the amount & method of collection. Unfortunately many young girls just squat & pee in the cup & we get a wash out of the internal genitalia, rather than clean urine. This often has minor amounts of WBC and protein. A proper specimen has less, but again the importance varies with the amount, not the fact a little shows up.
