The article discusses a study conducted in Germany on the restoration of testicular testosterone production and fertility in a patient having classical congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) by combined treatment of oral corticosteroids, human chorionic gonadotropin and follicle-stimulating hormone. The study involves a 30-year-old Caucasian male being assessed with endocrine and reproductive evaluation after undergoing left-sided orchiectomy. His hormone and testosterone levels were assessed.

    BACKGROUND Despite the improved success rate of sperm retrieval by microdissection testicular sperm extraction (micro-TESE), methods to stimulate spermatogenesis in men with non-obstructive azoospermia (NOA) remain unexplored. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of hCG-based...

    Hepatoblastoma, an embryonal tumor, is one of the most common primary liver tumors in childhood. It secretes human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), which can cause precocious puberty (PP). Herein, we present a case with PP who had enlarged penile size noticed during a diagnosis of hepatoblastoma....

    The classification of azoospermia into obstructive or non-obstructive is largely based on medical history, physical examination and biochemical markers in serum and semen. However, the most accurate parameter for diagnosis is the testicular histology. The predictive value of the percutaneous...
