The most common cause of haematuria in children is UTI and this should be excluded. Isolated haematuria is not on its own a concern. Please refer to the guideline endorsed by your lead paediatric nephrology centre. Dipstick testing of other family members may identify an inherited abnormality which if present in healthy adults is reassuring. Findings which should prompt discussion with a paediatric nephrologist include:
  • Proteinuria
  • Hypertension
  • Raised creatinine
  • Family history of renal disease
  • Family history of hearing problems
  • Evidence of a vasculitic disease
  • Abnormal immunology
