Answer

Answer

Routine urinalysis may occasionally reveal findings of nonnephrotic proteinuria in patients being evaluated for other medical conditions. The urinalysis reveals microhematuria, leukocytes, hyaline casts, and oval fat bodies, but no cellular casts. Serum complement levels are normal.
