There are various causes of haematuria, most are benign especially children presenting with isolated asymptomatic microscopic haematuria. Present study was planned to assess the haematuria and proteinuria in school going childrens. The study was done in Upgraded Department of Paediatrics in Patna medical College and Hospital from Nov 2012 to Oct 2013. Urine sample was collected from 100 school going children. Midstream urine samples were collected in clean wide mouth jars, examined for the presence of proteinuria and haematuria by dipsticks and microscopic examination. The present data gives the information about the prevalence of proteinuria and haematuria in school children in north Indian region. From the above findings it can be revealed that it is possible to screen a large population of children at a moderately low cost providing the framework for further action in cases that may lead to the prevention of any systemic or renal disorder.
