1 doctor weighed in:

1 to 5 WBC in urine culture, but no bacteria found is it possible the cause can be something else though ruled out uti?

Dr. George Klauber
Pediatrics - Urology

In brief: Within normal limits

5 wcs or less in the spun urinary sediment/microscopic high power field is normal.
Wbcs are seen on microscopic urinalysis and not in a urine culture. Urine cultures are performed to identify and quantify urinary bacteria..
