In recent years, the treatment of male infertility has been revolutionized by advances in assisted reproductive technology. Prepared by an authoritative international panel of experts, this concise and structured account provides a consensus on the most effective and logical approach to the investigation and management of male infertility. The manual focuses attention on three key areas: history taking, clinical assessment of male fertility, and objective criteria for diagnostic categories. This approach complements the areas covered in the companion volume WHO Laboratory Manual for the Examination of Human Semen and Sperm-Cervical Mucus Interaction (CUP, fourth edition, 1999) and significantly expands on the section on male infertility discussed in the previous volume on the infertile couple, WHO Manual for the Standardized Investigation and Diagnosis of the Infertile Couple (CUP, 1993). This new, practical consensus will be an indispensable guide to good clinical management of all forms of male infertility.
