The patient with LN is likely to present with nephritic syndrome (oliguria, minimal proteinuria, haematuria
, hypertension and azotaemia) or with features of nephrotic syndrome (anasarca, heavy proteinuria and hypoalbuminaemia).
People with haematuria
often present to their general practitioner before being referred on to a urologist.

A 51-year-old man presented to the surgical department with bleeding from an ulcerated umbilical mass, associated with lower abdominal discomfort and painless haematuria

Typical characteristics of APSGN are oedema, oliguria, abrupt onset of painless macroscopic haematuria
(black-tea- or coke-coloured urine) (Fig.

Another significant find from Deltas and his research team, was that the majority of people on the island suffering from microscopic haematuria
-- a type of kidney disease - which is the presence of red blood cells in the urine, go on to suffer from renal failure.
Cutaneous lesions were associated with proteinuria and macroscopic haematuria
Bleeding events include haematoma, excessive menstruation, gum bleedings, haematuria
, excessive bleedings from wounds, epistaxis and spontaneous bleedings
For all cases of suspected UTI, urine culture was done by semi-quantitative technique on cysteine lactose electrolyte deficient medium (CLED agar--(Hi-Media, Mumbai)6 and quantitative unspun wet mount microscopy done to detect pyuria (> lpus cell/7 high power fields of well mixed uncentrifuged urine samples) (6), bacteriuria, haematuria
is where there is a tiny amount of red blood cells in the urine.
