The Fuchs-Rosenthal Chamber was used for the examination of the urine of 120 unselected urological patients to record the exact number of RBC. Sixty six (66) patients exhibited 10-100 erythrocytes / ml (n=30) and more than 100 erythrocytes / ml (n=36) respectively; whereas in 54 patients less than 10 erythrocytes / ml were found. Based on these findings asymptomatic nephrolithiasis and inflammatory diseases were the most common causes for microhematuria.
