Glossary for Male reproductive conditions

  • 46,XX testicular DSD: A sex chromosome disorder in males which affects gonadal development and causes infertility. Males have XX chromosomes instead of the normal XY.
  • 46,XX testicular disorder of sex development: A sex chromosome disorder in males which affects gonadal development and causes infertility. Males have XX chromosomes instead of the normal XY.
  • Anophthalmia -- esophageal atresia -- cryptorchidism: An extremely rare congenital malformation characterized by absent eyes, undescended testes and an esophageal malformation.
  • Anorchia: A congenital abnormality where one or both testes are missing at birth.
  • Anorchidia: A rare birth defect where the testes are absent. The testes may regress at any stage of fetal development. The stage of fetal growth at which the testes regress will affect the presentation of the disorder at birth. The presentation at birth may range from varying degrees of genital ambiguity with streak gonads.
  • Autoimmune orchitis: A inflammation of the testicles caused by an autoimmune reaction
  • Azoospermia: Total lack of sperm in ejaculate
  • Bronchiectasis -- oligospermia: A rare syndrome characterized by the association of bronchiectasis (enlarged bronchial airways) and a defect in the sperm ducts which affects the number of sperm produced. Patients suffer frequent bacterial infections.
  • Chromosome Y deletion: An inherited chromosomal disorder where the deletion of the chromosome results in male infertility.

The cilia are tiny, hair-like structures found in the respiratory and ear passages and help to clear debris and mucus. This results in increases risk of respiratory infections, sinusitis, ear infections and male infertility. The infertility results as the tails of sperm is basically cilia.
