• casts
  • The hematuria is frequently accompanied by erythrocyte casts indicating that the renal lesion is a glomerulitis. (annals.org)
  • In the patient with persistent hematuria, dysmorphic red cells and red cell casts suggest the presence of a glomerular disease, as does the presence of albuminuria. (uptodate.com)
  • Signs of glomerular bleeding (best identified by a nephrologist or other experienced examiner) include a dysmorphic appearance of some red cells, red cell casts and, in patients with gross hematuria, a brown, cola-colored urine ( table 1 and picture 1A-C ). (See 'Etiology and evaluation of hematuria in adults', section on 'Glomerular versus nonglomerular bleeding' . (uptodate.com)
  • patients
  • Our data show that microscopic hematuria is the most reliable urinary criterion for diagnosing hereditary nephritis in both male and female patients. (annals.org)
  • However, in some patients the only manifestation of glomerular disease is persistent hematuria, similar to that seen with extraglomerular causes of bleeding such as prostatic disease and stones. (uptodate.com)
