Hematuria



Overview

Hematuria is the presence of red blood cells (RBCs) in the urine. In microscopic hematuria, the urineappears normal to the naked eye, but examination with a microscope shows a high number of RBCs. Gross hematuria can be seen with the naked eye—the urine is red or the color of cola.

Treatment for hematuria depends on the cause. If no serious condition is causing the hematuria, no treatment is necessary.
