Abstract

In the absence of surgery on the urinary tract, the emission of red urine after anesthesia should be considered as a diagnostic emergency because it can be a sign of hematuria, hemoglobinuria, blood transfusion reaction, significant myoglobinuria, or porphyria.

This case describes the management of a 12-year-old boy who presented red urine at the day care unit after strabismus surgery.
