Cryptozoospermia

Cryptospermia or cryptozoospermia is not a very common condition, which is one of the reasons this diagnosis is often missed. The word crypto means hidden , and as the word suggests , patients with cryptospermia have occasional sperm in the semen , but because their numbers are so few , they are very difficult to find, and easy to miss. This is quite a common problem when the semen analysis is done in a general medical laboratory, where the laboratory technicians are not experienced , and don't know how to do the semen analysis properly.  A lot of technicians will do the microscopic analysis of the semen sample quite casually – and will report it is as having a zero sperm count or azoospermia , if they cannot see sperm in the first quick glance.

    Your best option would be TESE-ICSI. Read more at www.drmalpani.com/tesa.htm
