1 doctor agrees

In brief: Bile, air,medication

Bilirubin causing bilirubinuria can cause foamy urine, also fistula (abnormal connection) between bowel and urinary tract can cause pneumaturia, occasionally a medication like pyridium (phenazopyridine).
Most common cause is proteinuria, which if present, should be worked up and treated.
