In order to report clearly the results of cytological urinalysis and to standardise the terminology, the members of the Croatian Society for Clinical Cytology have elaborated a standardised form to report the finding of cytological urinalysis. The diagnostic criteria of the Paris Classification of Urinary Cytology have been accepted and further non-malignant challenges have been added. The report contains information on the patient, type of specimen, macroscopic assessment, method of processing, adequacy of specimen, cytomorphological description and semi-quantitative analysis of epithelial and inflammatory cells, non-cellular elements, existence and morphology of erythrocytes, diagnosis in line with the Paris classification, comment, conclusion and recommendation.
