The main objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of a micronutrient supplementation (MS) combined with avanafil on sperm function. Oligoasthenospermic men (n = 217) were treated daily for 90 days with either an MS (45 men, Group A), l‐carnitine (44 men, Group B), MS plus avanafil (43 men, Group C) or avanafil (43 men, Group D); another...
The aim of the study was to investigate the hypothesis that Y chromosome microdeletions are directly implicated in testicular maldescent. Genomic DNA was extracted from the peripheral blood of 292 subjects. This population consisted of (i) 180 children with all phenotypes of isolated (non-syndromic) testicular maldescent from 174 index families, (i...
Diabetes mellitus with the subsequent generation of reactive oxygen species represents a major risk factor for testicular dysfunction (TD). We investigate whether administration of antioxidants edaravone and taurine could prevent type 1 diabetes-induced TD in the rat. Six-week-old male Wistar rats were divided into four groups. Group A was treated...

We present a case of a 33-year-old man, with a diffuse pattern of granulomatous orchitis, confirmed by means of testicular biopsy. MRimaging of the scrotum revealed the presence of two small-sized...
