dc.description.abstract Three men who volunteered as normal subjects were found to have abnormally high levels of serum follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) despite having normal seminal fluid analyses and fertility. Two of the men had a history of previous orchitis, and one had an atrophic testis. Serum luteinizing hormone and testosterone levels were normal. These cases appear to represent compensated primary testicular disease, with normal sperm counts and fertility maintained at the expense of chronically elevated FSH levels. These results imply that in certain situations, the measurement of serum FSH levels may be a more sensitive index of testicular disease than the performance of seminal fluid analyses. en_US
