Loin Pain Hematuria Syndrome Clinic

The experts of UW Health's Loin Pain Hematuria Syndrome Clinic provide diagnosis and treatment for patients with Loin Pain Hematuria Syndrome. 


What is loin pain hematuria syndrome?


Loin pain hematuria syndrome (LPHS) is a rare disorder that may be caused by Primary Loin Pain Hematuria Syndrome and/or Nutcracker Syndrome, kidney stones and various other kidney diseases. Patients with LPHS have persistent and reoccurring loin pain on one or both sides of their body, and blood in their urine. The pain can range from hours to constant and can include dysuria, vomiting and low-grade fever.

Due to patient demand, we are quickly working to expand our LPHS program services and team members. We are currently evaluating and treating patients who are already referred to our program. New patients may complete our LPHS consult form to be placed on a consult waiting list. After we receive your form, you will be contacted by our program coordinator to schedule an in-person or phone consult, based on your location. After you submit your information, you will see a confirmation message on your screen to confirm that we received your inquiry, and our clinical team will be in contact with you as soon as possible.
