I questioned the doc on this diagnosis. He confirmed that the patient has white blood cells in the urine. However, I cannot find "leukouria" in the alphabetical index. Any ideas ??

A couple of different ways you could go:
791.9 nonspecific findings on examination of urine
791.7 cells and casts in urine (not sure I would use this one as there is no mention of casts.
I think I would go with nonspecific 791.9
