Welcome to ehealthforum,
Presence of pus cells in urine indicates infection. Infections (bacterial, viral, fungal) have been noted in all body systems in adult as well as pediatric patients who are on Enbrel or on other immunosuppressive agents. Report to your treating doctor/rheumatologist and get started on appropriate treatment options for control of the current infection and prevent further infective episodes. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/rheumatologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
