Subject: leukouria?

This is a patient who was found to have blood in the urine and his "leukoesterase" was 1+.  In searching I have found that "leukoesterase" is used for "leukocyte esterase," but it doesn't seem to be official in any dictionaries I've checked.  The doctor later summarizes that the patient has hematuria and leukouria.   Leukouria only gets four hits on google.  I can't seem to find an alternate word for what he means.  Anyone know what the real word for this is?  Thanks!

This is a male, and it is definitely referring to urine.  Thanks, though.  It does sound close.
