SARS CoV-2, which causes COVID-19 disease, is an enveloped RNA virus from the coronavirus family

that causes severe respiratory failure. The virus can be found in respiratory secretions of patients 1-2

days before the onset of clinical symptoms and two weeks after the onset of disease symptoms. In

addition, the presence of the virus was detected in whole blood, serum, urine and fecal samples. The

aim of this retrospective study is to show the complete urinalysis levels in Covid 19 patients.

The study included 30 individuals with COVID-19 and a control group of 30 people. Both groups were

selected from Gazi University Medical Faculty Hospital. Complete urinalysis parameters of the two

groups; Values such as pH, density, hemoglobin, leukocyte esterase, protein, glucose, ketone,

urobilinogen, bilirubin, nitrite, leukocyte, erythrocyte, squamous epithelium, renal epithelium were

analyzed retrospectively.

According to our research, the mean age of 30 COVID patients is 65,50 and the mean age of the control

group, which consists of 30 people, is 59,56. In our study, urobilinogen and erythrocyte levels were

found to be significantly different between COVID-19 patients and control group (p<0.05).

As a result, the COVID-19 epidemic continues to be an important problem all over the world and in our

country. Clinical and laboratory disorders of the digestive system and liver are not uncommon in

COVID-19 disease, the main site of involvement of which is respiratory tract and lung. There are studies

that report hematuria on urinalysis during SARS CoV-2 infection and find both proteinuria and

hematuria strongly associated with increased hospital mortality. Our study has limitations as it is
