Yest-like cells (YLC)

Yeast cells are smooth, colourless and usually egg-shaped. They have birefringent walls, come in different sizes and often show budding. The most common type of yeast found in urine is Candida albicans. Yeast cells in urine can come from either skin-related or vaginal contaminations or can indicate mycotic urinary tract infections.
