A 50-year-old member asked:

Please let me know if there is a possibility for an adult patient with uncorected bilateral cryptorchidism to father children without any treatment?

Unlikely: Bilateral cryptorchidism signifies non-palpable testes ; thus intra-abdominal or high inguinal. Such testes can not produce sperm. However a few sperm might be present in a low undescended testis at scrotal neck. In which case sperm might be surgically extracted directly from testis implanted in vitro by intracytoplasmic sperm injection (icsi).
