A total of 134 testicular biopsies from infertile men were studied. The potentially treatable causes of infertility viz. Normal spermatogenesis with post-testicular obstruction, maturation arrest and hypospermatogenesis together constituted about 54 percent of all cases. The incurable causes viz., germ cell aplasia, tubular fibrosis and Klinefelter's syndrome together constituted about 42 percent of all cases. Testicular biopsy in male infertility is a very useful procedure since it gives a lot of information on the diagnosis and helps in planning treatment.
