Abstract: Male infertility is a growing concern for many couples, and the incidence appears to grow especially in developed and developing countries. Our objective was to investigate the causes of male infertility in our area (Arad county). We analyzed 206 cases with abnormal sperm parameters, clinical evaluation, testicular ultrasound and hormonal testing was performed in all cases. Our results showed a significant percentage of idiopathic infertility, and the most frequent cause or association with infertility was the presence of varicocele. The incidence of varicocele cases was a slight bigger than in literature. More research in this field must be done, and probably should be focused on genetic or microbiology, because to form a clinical point of view more than one third of infertile men appear healthy and can’t be offered no proper treatment.
