Urinalysis (Uroscopy) is a diagnostic tool used by physicians from the ancient time to till date. Evidence of this diagnostic tool can be found in the works of Hippocrates, Aristotle, Galen, Avicenna and few others. Urine is the waste of Hadm Kabidi wa Uruqi (all digestive processes occurring inside liver and vessels). Careful inspection of the urine will yield much information about many physiological functions and metabolic processes of the body, but directly indicates the state of the liver and condition of the urinary tracts and related organs, their passages and vessels. Urine also provides some information about other systems and organs. It helps in diagnosis of various pathological conditions of the body.

Key words: Urinalysis; Uroscopy; Unani System of Medicine; Diagnosis.
