OLIGOSPERMIA

Written by

A less-than-normal number of sperm (see SPERMATOZOON) present in each unit volume of seminal fluid (each ml of semen usually contains 20 million sperm). The condition may be permanent or temporary and is a major cause of INFERTILITY in men. It may be caused by ORCHITIS, an undescended testis, or VARICOCELE, and should be investigated.
