Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Haematuria is an emergent condition which is dramatic to patients due to its gross appearance and daunting to physicians because of various underlying causes. Various classifications exist to stratify haematuria based on severity, site of origin, time and duration of bleed. Although an underlying malignancy is always suspected, however, it is often caused by common conditions such as infections, inflammatory conditions, urolithiasis and various other benign conditions. There is a lack of clear consensus in the management of haematuria, particularly in critically ill patients. This chapter reviews the aetiopathogenesis, clinical presentations, and management of haematuria in critically ill cancer patients.
