The Authors report their experience on patients with monolateral inguinal cryptorchidism, comparing the clinical picture with the morphological pattern of both the testicular parenchima and the semen. Light and electron microscopic analysis of testicular biopsy and spermatozoa from the ejaculate have been taken into account. 4 patients out of 18 (22.2%) showed a normal spermiogram, while 14 showed a pathological spermiogram. The morphological study of the testicular parenchima showed a spectrum of lesions, most of which advanced, confirming that they are irreversible lesions of the germinal epithelium.

Abstract

The Authors report their experience on patients with monolateral inguinal cryptorchidism, comparing the clinical picture with the morphological pattern of both the testicular parenchima and the semen. Light and electron microscopic analysis of testicular biopsy and spermatozoa from the ejaculate have been taken into account. 4 patients out of 18 (22.2%) showed a normal spermiogram, while 14 showed a pathological spermiogram. The morphological study of the testicular parenchima showed a spectrum of lesions, most of which advanced, confirming that they are irreversible lesions of the germinal epithelium.
