from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Microhematuria describes the presence of blood in the urine ( hematuria ) , which can be detected microscopically or in the Sangur test using test strips, but is not visible macroscopically (i.e. with the naked eye) in contrast to macrohematuria . If there are intact erythrocytes in the sample , a narrow brown-red sediment may be visible after centrifugation . Microhematuria is a symptom, but not a disease per se.
