Objective:

ICD-10:

Description:

Testicular biopsy may be done to assess an infertile male with azoospermia (total lack of sperm). Four main histologic patterns are seen (germ cell aplasia, spermatocytic arrest, generalized fibrosis, and normal spermatogenesis). The presence of normal spermatogenesis suggests obstructive azoospermia with an obstruction distal to testis (bilateral obstruction or absence of some portion of the duct system).
