Pediatricians frequently encounter hematuria in children. One of the tardy complication of pulmonary tuberculosis, which is most characteristic and common in teenagers and middle aged, is represented by genitourinary tuberculosis. Renal tuberculosis is rare during childhood. The authors present a series of cases where the presenting symptom was gross or microscopic persistent hematuria. The diagnosis of urogenital tuberculosis was established from early-morning urine culture in all cases. In a patient with symptoms of recurrent urinary tract infection or hematuria associated with sterile pyuria the suspicion of GUTB must be considered. A delayed diagnosis of renal tuberculosis led to kidney damage and sequels of GUTB, including renal failure. Our cases report emphasizes that in case of persistent hematuria GUTB may be considered as a differential diagnosis

, HbD, HbE, and HbO. Figure 1 Classification of inherited hemoglobin disorders. The distribution of hemoglobinopathies varies from place to place, and much of the global burden of hemoglobinopathies is mainly correlated with malaria endemicity [ 3 ]. Further, hemoglobin SS disease (SCA) is the most common cause of sickle cell disease (SCD) and is most prevalent in Africa, Asia, and Mediterranean regions [ 4 ]. Beta-thalassemia is prevalent in populations of African descent and in regions of the Mediterranean, the Middle East, Transcaucasus, Central
