Abstract

Background: Urinary tract infection (UTI) in children is a common illness. The gold standard for UTI

diagnosis is urine culture, but it takes a long time and often gives negative results. Currently developed a

method of flow cytometry for checking urine sediments. This tool is able to detect leukocytes urine and urine

bacteria in quick time. The purpose of this study is to analyze the relationship of urine leukocyte count and

the number of urine bacteria using flow cytometry with urine culture in patients with UTI

Method: Eighty-four patients were enrolled in this study that consisting of 43 patients with suspected UTI

and 43 patients with non-ISK treated at Inpatient Installation, Emergency Installation Department of Health

Sciences at Dr.Soetomo General Hospital, Surabaya for 4 months. The examination of urine leukocytes and

urine bacteria was using current cytometry method (UF-500i, Sysmex, Japan). While, examination of urine

culture using blood agar plate and Mac. Conkey.

Results: There was a significant relationship between the number of leukocytes and the number of colonies.

The relationship between leukocytes and the number of colonies was weak, this was indicated by Spearman

correlation coefficient (rho) value of 0.376. There was a significant relationship between bacteria and the

number of colonies. p <0.05. The relationship between the number of urine bacteria and the number of

colonies was quite strong indicated by rho = 0.729.

Conclusion: There was a relationship between urine leukocyte count and the number of urine bacteria using

flow cytometry with a urine culture.
