Answer

Consultations are required in patients with urinary tract anomalies and in some patients with systemic diseases (eg, bleeding disorders, collagen vascular diseases, sickle cell nephropathy).

Referral to a urologist is required when clinical evaluation and workup indicates a tumor, a structural urogenital abnormality, or an obstructing calculus.
