Recent studies indicate that hematuria of renal parenchymal origin can be differentiated from hematuria of other origin by the presence of dysmorphic urinary erythrocytes (cells exhibiting irregular membranes or small surface blebs). We investigated the utility of this simple screening assay in a routine clinical laboratory. Dysmorphic erythrocytes in urine from 69 patients (18 with renal-parenchymal disease) were quantified on unstained slides by medical technologists using phase-contrast… Expand
