|Title:||Routine urine analysis in university candidates: is it worthwhile?|
|Abstract:||The study aimed to investigate the abnormalities in urine analysis in university candidates. A total of 247 students [150 males, 97 females] [mean age 20.08 years] had a medical check-up including urine analysis. In all, 38 urine samples had abnormalities [one or more abnormality/urinalysis]. Pyuria was found in 20 students [8.1%], haematuria in 15 [6.1%], albuminuria in 12 [4.8%] and casts in 9 [3.6%]. No glycosuria was found. Bacteria were found in 22 students [8.9%] and yeasts in two [0.8%]. Urinalysis is warranted as a routine test in university students because of the percentage of abnormalities found and its importance in disease surveillance. However, it should not be a criterion for refusal by universities|
