Eosinophil Detection in Urine

Eosinophil detection in urine is a laboratory test that aims to identify the presence of eosinophils in a urine sample. Eosinophils are a type of white blood cell that is involved in the body's immune responses, especially allergic reactions and combating parasitic infections. Generally, eosinophils should not be present in the urine. Their presence may indicate an underlying inflammation or infection within the urinary tract.

The detection of eosinophils in the urine is particularly valuable in diagnosing conditions such as acute interstitial nephritis, which is a kidney disorder that involves the inflammation of spaces between the kidney tubules. The test also has applications in evaluating patients with suspected allergies or parasitic infections affecting the urinary tract.
