10yo microscopic blood in urine

Ill try to be brief. 10 year old female with intermittent stomach pain, painful urination, pressure with urination. Tested positive for moderate amounts of blood in urine consistantly for 1+ years. Blood is always present but there is more of it when other symptoms are present. CBCs have come back normal, xrays normal, no signs of stones, IVP showed mormal kidney function. She has never tested positive for a uti in any of the 20+ urine cultures done. No family history of kidney disease, her uncle has Crohns and her Great Aunt died of a heart attack as a complication of Porphyria. Any ideas as to what this could be??? Any information would be helpful as she has already seen several specialists. Thank you!!

Welcome to e health forum.

From the history it seems that the young girl, has microscopic hematuria, with all the investigations turning up normal.

In such cases, where there is no possible explanation or cause, it is called Idiopathic microscopic hematuria, and no specific treatment is needed in such cases.

Such patients just need to be periodically examined and tested (say every 3 -6 months) by a doctor or a urologist, to rule out any new complications or other developments.
