MedGen UID:
1618089
Concept ID:
C4540179
Disease or Syndrome
Synonyms: SPERMATOGENIC FAILURE 22; SPGF22

Definition

Spermatogenic failure-22 (SPGF22) is characterized by male infertility due to spermatocyte maturation arrest resulting in cryptozoospermia or azoospermia (Gershoni et al., 2017). For a general phenotypic description and discussion of genetic heterogeneity of spermatogenic failure, see SPGF1 (258150). [from OMIM]

Clinical features

From HPO
Male infertility
MedGen UID:
5796
Concept ID:
C0021364
Disease or Syndrome
The inability of the male to effect fertilization of an ovum after a specified period of unprotected intercourse. Male sterility is permanent infertility.
Cryptozoospermia
MedGen UID:
481180
Concept ID:
C3279550
Disease or Syndrome
A type of oligozoospermia in which spermatozoa can be detected in an ejaculate only after centrifugation and inspection of the pellet.
Non-obstructive azoospermia
MedGen UID:
866757
