Abstract

The testicular function of eight adult black men with sickle cell disease was studied. Plasma testosterone concentrations were within the normal range; plasma FSH concentrations were normal, but two of the eight patients demonstrated elevated LH levels. Oligospermia was present in three of four patients studied. Local ischemia secondary to sickling was postulated as one factor responsible for the findings.
