dc.description.abstractThe 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 universitiesEN
