Urine Hyaline Casts are cylindrical structures that can form in the kidneys and be detected in the urine. The presence of hyaline casts in the urine is a nonspecific finding that may occur in healthy individuals or in certain kidney disorders.

iollo markers that associate with Hyaline Casts


Creatinine is a breakdown product of creatine phosphate in muscle. Elevated blood creatinine levels are an indicator of kidney dysfunction. Hyaline casts can form in the kidney tubules when plasma proteins leak through the glomerular filtration barrier due to kidney damage or disease.


Cystinuria is an inherited disorder that causes high levels of cystine in the urine, which can lead to cystine stones in the kidneys, ureters, and bladder. These stones and crystals can damage kidney tubules and lead to hyaline cast formation.


Elevated homocysteine is a risk factor for cardiovascular and kidney disease. High homocysteine can damage blood vessels and lead to kidney dysfunction, potentially resulting in hyaline cast formation due to glomerular damage allowing proteins into the tubules.
