The KOVA system is the standard semiquantitative urinary sediment method. One hundred and fourteen (114) unselected urinary samples in urological patients were checked using the KOVA system. In 85.08% the results were no RBC / ml, whereas in 14.92% there were 4000-8000 or over 8000 RBC / ml. The impression is that there are no "˜normal' ranges concerning hematuria and each microhematuria can be caused by a malignant disease especially if the patient is older than 50 years.
