In Korea, currently, elementary, middle, and high school students undergo a regular urine test. This has resulted in significantly reduced progression of chronic kidney disease to ESRD. Follow up testing for patients who have abnormal results is not being actively enforced. In Korea, They are not yet identified to reports on patients who do not follow up. Also, urine tests are commonly performed in the emergency room in pediatric patients. However, even if abnormal results are found, if it is not associated with the main symptom, medical doctors sometimes do not recommend active follow-up. We report here on a case of progress of chronic kidney disease to ESRD in a patient who did not undergo follow-up, even if she had abnormal results on systemic urinalysis.
Key words: Urine screening test, Chronic kidney disease, Hematuria, Proteinuria
