Abstract

The clinical suspicion for urinary tract infection usually begins with simple laboratory aid: the urinalysis, performed many times in a small laboratory by the physician himself. A well-performed urinalysis can still provide valuable information for many diseases, including urinary tract infection. However, physicians need to remain proficient in this procedure. This article reviews the basic steps, as well as potential pitfalls, for the proper performance of this old, but still relevant, medical skill.
