Abstract

Presence of bacteria in the sperm is often associated to a reduction of fertility in relationship with a decrease in number and motility of spermatozoa and with an augmentation of the abnormal spermatic cells. In the most severe cases, chronic and complicated phlogosis may lead to obstruction of seminal pathways with consequent azoospermia. Clinical features of seminal phlogosis are extremely variable both in acute and chronic evolutions. In every case the first diagnostical step is sperm count and seminal complete analysis which can give evidence of phlogistic alteration in quantity and quality of spermatic cells with a typical presence of an excess in white blood cells (leukospermia) as consequence of infection. The great variety in clinical and bacteriological aspects and the particular biological features of the organs involved, as the prostate, makes treatment a difficult problem to solve with particular regard to the choice of an effective antibiotic which pharmacokinetic has to result suitable for the microorganism as well as for the tissue of the infection site. All those efforts are indispensable to reduce the too frequent therapeutical failures in the management of seminal phlogistic pathology with complications of organic but also physiological relevancy for the patient and the partner too, such as azoospermia.
