Time of Haematuria Try to determine if haematuria occurs at the initial part of the micturition stream, terminally or throughout micturition in order to facilitate the localisation of the site of haematuria. Haematuria occurring at the initial portion could be due to some cause at the anterior urethra (urethritis, urethral stricture or meatal stenosis). Terminal haematuria could be due to posterior urethritis or a lesion at the bladder neck or trigone (polyps or tumours). Haematuria present throughout micturition means that the lesion is above the urinary bladder and could be due to a stone, tumour, tuberculosis or nephritis.

The latter had more proteinuria, crescents and a higher incidence of hypertension. When proteinuria exceeded 2 gm, there was a higher incidence of renal failure as well as an increased incidence of crescents on renal biopsy. Heavier proteinuria seemed to be related to more severe histological lesions. Our data showed that patients with crescents had a higher chance of developing end stage renal failure. Shirai found that patients who developed chronic renal failure at followup evaluation showed marked capsular adhesions, fibrocellular crescents and glomerular hyalinisation and sclerosis at the initial biopsy.
