Haematuria can be a symptom of serious underlying pathology (e.g. urological malignancy), but also has many benign causes (e.g. vigorous exercise). The main objective of this review was to determine the diagnostic accuracy of tests to detect haematuria and to investigate its underlying causes, focusing on the investigation of haematuria to detect urological malignancies.
