This study was conducted to investigate the effects of bilateral cryptorchidism induced in adult rams on testicular function and Leydig cell ultrastructure. The results indicated that long-term bilateral cryptorchidism resulted in decreased testicular size, degeneration of seminiferous tubules, elevated serum LH levels, maintenance of normal testosterone concentrations in peripheral and spermatic vein serum, impairment of the magnitude and duration of androgen response to exogenous luteinizing… CONTINUE READING
