IDIOPATHIC HEMATURIA DURING PREGNANCY – CLINICAL CASE
Keywords:pregnancy, idiopathic hematuria, clinical case
During pregnancy, microscopic hematuria is encountered in many cases, but it does not affect the transition of pregnancy. Macroscopic hematuria is rare in pregnancy. Hematuria that can’t be found for any reason is considered idiopathic hematuria. Many patients suffer from idiopathic hematuria. Idiopathic hematuria mainly ends in the second trimester and begins in the third trimester from birth then it straightens. A case is presented of idiopathic hematuria in a 22-year-old mother of whose hematuria resolved at 31-32 weeks in pregnancy. The need for non-invasive investigations and conservative management is stressed as well as the rarity of such cases resolving before delivery.
