Urogenital infections and inflammation are a significant etiologic factor in male infertility. Data for this review were acquired by a systematic search of the medical literature. Relevant cross-references were also taken into account. We address infectious and inflammatory diseases of different compartments of the male genital tract and discuss their(More)
Prostatitis syndrome is a frequent condition in men. It is not known in most patients if the prostate is the only organ involved.

BACKGROUND It is debated whether chronic urogenital inflammations and infections may trigger the formation of antisperm antibodies (ASA) in semen. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the formation of ASA in defined chronic inflammatory and infectious diseases of the male reproductive tract (MRT). DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS Three hundred sixty-five patients(More)
