  COMMON AMBULATORY TOPICS: HEMATURIA William A. Curry, MD UAB General Internal Medicine  April 1, 2008  HEMATURIA: Bennett and Plum Cecil Textook of Medicine  HEMATURIA: Brenner and Rector The Kidney  HEMATURIA: Rakel and Bope Conn’s Current Therapy, 2008    “Microscopic hematuria in a patient with an apparent UTI should be carefully observed and should disappear after therapy of the UTI. If the microscopic hematuria disappears, then the physician can safely assume it was related to the UTI. Particularly in elderly patients, if the microscopic hematuria persists after eradication of the UTI, then the patient should be investigated for a bladder or renal source of the microscopic hematuria.” (p. 668)
