UTIs & Multiple Renal Cysts

Patient: I’ve been having recurrent UTI’s for a while. I’ve had 4 within the past 7 months. Only 1 of those showed up as being an infection with urinalysis. The last 3 urinalyses came back with no infection, but showed lots of blood. I had an abdominal MRI performed a few months ago for other issues (Crohn’s) and it came back showing multiple bilateral cortical and medullary renal cysts. Would this be causing the recurrent UTI symptoms and blood in urine?

Symptoms: urgency, frequency, pressure/pain in abdomen, blood in urine.
