Treatments for Hematuria in Children

How will my child's hematuria be treated?

Your child's pediatric urologist will determine which treatment is appropriate for your child based on what's causing the hematuria.

  • Hematuria caused by urinary stones is generally treated by removal of the stones.
  • Hematuria caused by urinary tract infections is treated with antibiotic therapy to eradicate the infection.

The doctor will also consider the extent of the condition, your child's tolerance for specific medicines and procedures and your preferences. In many cases, the hematuria goes away by itself and does not return; in this case, your child wouldn't require any specific therapy other than observation.
