Symptomless hematuria may be a sign of serious conditions. The urine specimens of 103 patients with asymptomatic hematuria were examined for red-cell casts.

Only 85 specimens were suitable for the red-cell cast examination, 42 patients (49.14%) were red-cell casts positive, revealing a glomerular origion of the hematuria.

Therefore, a selective application of possibly burdening and expensive urologic diagnostic procedures is possible by a simple, cheap and harmless urine examination demonstrating the presence or absence of red-cell casts in the urine.
