Is blood in urine a sign of a kidney infection?

    Blood in the urine is often present with kidney infections, but painless bloody urine is rarely due to an infection. High fever, back/flank pain and urinary tract discomfort are typically the signs of a kidney infection with or without visible blood in the urine.
