Male infertility is a condition that has always been less studied and known than female infertility. Male infertility is increasingly present and increasingly diagnosed. Although several causes are known, to date about 40% of the causes are considered idiopathic. The worldwide denasality can only be slowed if awareness campaigns are implemented on all the diseases that can alter fertile potential, especially in young adolescents. Male infertility is, in addition, associated with several medical conditions. In particular, the association between infertility and testicular cancer, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune diseases, and genetic diseases is well known. For this reason, fertility preservation should not be proposed or be only oncological in nature, as there are several diagnosable pediatric pathologies that are associated with altered fertile potential to whose patients we could offer a gamete preservation pathway. In this paper we propose our experience on fertility preservation in pediatric andrological diseases.

Abstract

Male infertility is a condition that has always been less studied and known than female infertility. Male infertility is increasingly present and increasingly diagnosed. Although several causes are known, to date about 40% of the causes are considered idiopathic. The worldwide denasality can only be slowed if awareness campaigns are implemented on all the diseases that can alter fertile potential, especially in young adolescents. Male infertility is, in addition, associated with several medical conditions. In particular, the association between infertility and testicular cancer, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune diseases, and genetic diseases is well known. For this reason, fertility preservation should not be proposed or be only oncological in nature, as there are several diagnosable pediatric pathologies that are associated with altered fertile potential to whose patients we could offer a gamete preservation pathway. In this paper we propose our experience on fertility preservation in pediatric andrological diseases.
