URINE NORMAL RESULTS Urinalysis requires a fresh sample in a clean container done within 2 hours of collection. If is going to be delayed, needs refrigeration, avoiding the decomposition of the sample Normal urine is a clear straw-colored liquid, with a slight odor. It is affected by diet, concentration, Ds, drugs, and Physical activity. It contains some crystals, a small number of cells from the tissues that line the bladder, and transparent (hyaline) casts. Normal urine does not contain sugars, yeast cells, protein, ketones, bacteria, or parasitic organisms. pH The pH of normal urine is 4.5–8.0. average is 6.0 Acidic urine is associated with xanthine, cystine, uric acid, calcium oxalate stones Alkaline urine is associated with calcium carbonate, calcium phosphate, magnesium phosphate stones. Increased Ph ↑ than 7 (alkaline) Decrease Ph ↓ 7 (more acid) Resp/Met alkalosis Resp/Metabolic acidosis Vegan diet Diabetes Mellitus Vomiting Starvation Diuretics Diarrhea UTI Diet high in meat
Abnormal results: CLOUDINESS: Urine may be cloudy because it contains red or white blood cells, bacteria, fat, mucus, or pus from a bladder or kidney infection. ODOR The aromatic odor of normal urine is caused by presence of volatile acid. Foul-smelling urine is a common symptom of urinary-tract infection. Fruity odor/sweet smell of acetone: DM, starvation, dehydration, ketones. Some foods (asparagus), and certain antibiotics can affect the urine odor BLOOD AND TISSUE CELLS Red blood cells in the urine can be due: vigorous exercise or exposure to toxic chemicals. Bloody urine can also be a sign of bleeding in the G/U tract as a result of systemic bleeding disorders, kidney diseases, bacterial infections, obstructions in the urinary tract, traumatic injuries, and tumors. A high number of white blood cells in the urine is a symptom of UTI A large number of cells from tissue lining (epithelial cells) indicate damage to the small tubes that carry material into and out of the kidneys.
SPECIFIC GRAVITY (N-1005/1035) Reflects the concentrating capability of kidneys, and hydration status of patient Low specific gravity (below 1.005), more dilute the urine: associated with diabetes insipidus, ATN, pyelonephritis, AGN, overhydration, renal failure (decrease water reabsorption) High specific gravity (above 1.035), more concentrated the urine: patients who are in shock, suffer from nephrotic syndrome, acute GN, CHF, water restriction/dehydration (kidneys reabsorbing water, urine is concentrated), excessive sweating, diarrhea, fever. PROTEIN Proteinuria can be a symptom of kidney stones, inflammation of the kidneys, degenerative kidney disease, or multiple tumors. Findings of more than 1+ protein with SG under 1015 abnormal protein excretion CRYSTALS Some appear in normal urine, such as calcium oxalate or uric acid crystal A large number of calcium oxalate crystals, is a sign of abnormally high levels of calcium in the blood. Other crystals, including tyrosine, leucine, and cholesterol, are abnormal. NITRITES: They are found when nitrate reducing bacteria are present in large numbers. A negative test, does not rule a UTI.
BLOOD AND TISSUE CELLS Red blood cells in the urine can be due: vigorous exercise or exposure to toxic chemicals. Presence of more than 5 RBC/HPF in a bloody urine can also be a sign of bleeding in the G/U tract as a result of systemic bleeding disorders, kidney diseases, bacterial infections, obstructions in the urinary tract, traumatic injuries, and tumors. A high number of white blood cells in urine is a symptom of kidney/UTI disease A large number of cells from tissue lining (epithelial cells) indicate damage to the small tubes that carry material into and out of the kidneys. CASTS Formed when protein and other materials settle in the kidney tubules and collecting ducts. Casts are dislodged by normal urine flow. A large number of white blood or red blood cast cells in a urine specimen is a sign of kidney disease. LEUKOCYTES ESTERASE: Produced by the granulocytic blood cells during an infection Presence of 5 or more leukocytes (WBC) per high power field may indicate UTI, interstitial cystitis, calculous disease, and glomerulonephritis.
SUGARS A high level of glucose and other sugars in the urine (glycosuria) is often a symptom of diabetes mellitus. Glycosuria can also be caused by advanced kidney disease, impaired tubular reabsorption, shock, cancer of the pancreas, Cushing. KETONES The presence of abnormally high numbers of ketones in the urine (ketonuria) usually results from uncontrolled diabetes mellitus. Ketonuria can also be caused by prolonged starvation, or decreased CH intake, Etho, fever UROBILINOGEN Finding urobilinogen in the urine may be a symptom of liver disease caused by the formation of fibrous tissue, medications that damage the liver, or obstructive jaundice. BUN: Blood Urea Nitrogen, is a general indicator of renal function. Is influenced by diet, catabolic state of patient CREATININE: Is a more sensitive indicator of renal function than BUN. Is influenced by muscle mass of patient
Urine Color Range from pale yellow (diluted) to amber yellow (concentrated), due to the pigment urochrome. The color indicates the concentration of urine and varies with the specific gravity. Abnormal Urine Colors Red Color: Hematuria/Myoglobinuria: Brownish red color. muscle damage, vigorous exercice Dark Red Urine: bleeding from kidneys Bright Red Urine: bleeding in lower urinary tract Pink diaper syndrome: pinkish color on diaper 2ary to urate crystals in neonates Foods: Berries, beets, food coloring Drugs: Dilantin, phenothiazines, Orange: Pyridium, Rifampin, Urate Crystals Green: Food coloring, Pseudomonas infection Brown/Black: Hemoglobin, Bilirubin, Flagyl, Nitrofurantoin Dark Yellow: Bile pigments (urobilinogen or bilirubin), ↑ Carotene in diet Blue: Methilene blue, Defect in the tryotophan absorption Milky/Cloudy Color: Pus/Bacteria in urine. Also large amount of fat foods
MALE GENITALIA: Testes descends into well-formed, pigmented and rugated scrotum, or are in the inguinal canal Urethral normal opening: At center of shaft. Hypospadia / Epyspadia Phymosis Hydrocele Paraphymosis Neonatal cryptorchidism. Balanitis Testicular Torsion (swollen, bluish) In the first week, the urine can assume a red brick color represented by urates, staining the diapers as blood. They disappear in water, being a differential diagnosis with hematuria
Phimosis/Paraphimosis Phimosis: Inability to retract the prepuce (foreskin). Normal in children under 3 years. In older males, phimosis may be due to the inflammation at the tip of the foreskin Paraphimosis: Inability to reduce the foreskin due to venous congestion of the foreskin. Can progress to arterial compromise and gangrene S/S: Phimosis can cause urinary retention due to pain or obstruction of the urethra TX: Phimosis: Steroid cream applied to foreskin to loosen the phimotic ring. In chronic phimosis- Circumcision Paraphimosis: Lubrication and compression of the foreskin and glans. In refractory cases, a vertical incision of the ligating band is done.
BALANOPOSTHITIS-BALANITIS (balanitis, of the glans; posthitis, of the prepuce) Balanitis is an inflammation of the foreskin and head of the penis. Balanitis is usually caused by poor hygiene in uncircumcised men. The inflammation can be due to a bacterial, fungal, or viral infection, caustic soaps, or failure to properly rinse soap off while bathing. Symptoms: redness of foreskin or penis, rashes on the head of the penis, foul-smelling discharge, painful penis and foreskin Treatment: Tx depends on the cause of the balanitis. Infectious balanitis may be treated with ATB or ointments, good hygiene. Circumcision-severe case Complications: Chronic inflammation or infection can: Scar and narrow the opening of the penis (urethral stricture) Painful retraction of the foreskin to expose the tip of the penis( phimosis) Difficulty to reposition the foreskin to cover the head of the penis (PP); swelling can affect the blood supply to the tip of the penis Prevention: Good hygiene
HYDROCELE Accumulation of peritoneal fluid in the tunica vaginalis of scrotum, due to obliteration of processus vaginalis At about 28 weeks of gestation, the testicles descend from the developing baby's abdominal cavity into the scrotum. A sac (processus vaginalis) accompanies each testicle, allowing fluid to surround them. In most cases, the sac closes and the fluid is absorbed. If the fluid remains after the sac closes, the condition is known as a noncommunicating hydrocele . Because the sac is closed, fluid can't flow back into the abdomen. Usually the fluid gets absorbed within a year. In some cases, however, the sac remains open. With this condition, known as communicating hydrocele , the sac can change size or, if the scrotal sac is compressed, fluid can flow back into the abdomen. S/S: Non tender swelling of scrotum, round and smooth Distal testicular shadow can be seen by transillumination R/O: Hernia. Hydroceles transilluminates and does not reduce. Hernia are reducible TX: Spontaneous regression in 90% of cases. Surgery- Hydrocelectomy, only after the first year of life, particularly if is communicating hydrocele or inguinal hernia is present at the same time
HYPOSPADIAS Is when the urethral meatus is located below and proximal to its normal position The ventral foreskin is lacking while the dorsal portion has a hood aspect The ventral urethral meatus- in most cases opens on or adjacent to the glans penis, but the opening can be on the shaft or in the perineum. Chordee - is a ventral curvature of the penis shaft, most apparent on erection. Patients with hypospadia should not be circumcised, because the foreskin is necessary for later repair. The ideal age is between 18 and 24 months.
URINARY TRACT INFECTION Is an infection from the bladder until the kidneys, occurring when bacteria enter the opening of the urethra and multiply in the urinary tract, where can lead to a significant damage Types: Urethritis: Infection of the urethra Cystitis: Bladder infection is by far the most common UTI. Pyelonephritis: Inf. of renal parenchyma and renal pelvis, due to ascending infection from bladder, is due to G- Etiology : Most common: E. coli 75-90%% Less common: Klebsiella sp, Proteus mirabilis, Enterococcus or other G- Uncommonly: staph saprophyticus
