The possible deleterious effects of folic acid antagonist methotrexate on the fertility potential have been investigated in 26 male psoriatic patients. Examination for semen, testicular histology, and spermatogenic function using radioactive phosphorus revealed that methotrexate had no unfavorable effect on male fertility. A long follow up of the patients(More)
A clinical investigative study of 148 male leprous patients demonstrated the presence of testicular lesions in 35 cases. Semen analysis revealed marked oligo-athenozoospermia in 10 cases and azoospermia in 25 cases. Testicular biopsies from leprous testes showed different histologic patterns ranging from spermatogenic arrest to complete hyalinization of(More)
Semen analysis was performed on 8 men, every 2 months, for a period of 8 months, after the application of the radiozinc spermatogensis test. Semen was examined for volume, cell count, motility, and abnormal forms. Results showed no evidence of any changes in semen parameters. Student's test was used to compare the data before the test with the data after(More)
One hundred impotent men and 15 sexually active male volunteers served as the source for this study. Serum prolactin was estimated in all cases using radioimmunoassay technique. Cases with hyperprolactinemia were treated with bromocriptine for 3 months. Hyperprolactinemia was detected in three patients only (3%), with no findings of pituitary tumors.(More)
Sex chromatin investigations, including X-chromatin and Y-chromatin, was carried out on one hundred idiopathic infertile males with marked oligospermia or azoospermia. Seven cases (7%) were X-chromatin positive, 18% of the cases had aberrant Y-body (10% big Y, 7% small Y and 1% double Y). Such Y-chromosome abnormalities were frequent among azoospermic than(More)
The antispermatogenic effect of niridazole was studied in 20 bilharzialmale patients. Niridazole was found to induce defective spermatogenesis in the form of focal spermatocyte arrest and or germinal cell hypoplasia. The effect was transient, with active recovery occurring 3 months after therapy. Niridazole therapy must be postponed or changed for those(More)
