PURPOSE The use of refined microscopic urinalysis for the presence of dysmorphic red blood cells (RBCs) has been evaluated in children and adults with a known source of hematuria. We examined the clinical usefulness of this study in a pediatric population with an unknown source of hematuria. MATERIALS AND METHODS Children 12 years old or younger referred for evaluation of asymptomatic microscopic hematuria exhibiting 4 or more RBCs per high power field were enrolled in this study.
