Globozoospermia is observed in <0.1% of male infertile patients. The aim of this study is to report the successful clinical outcome in man with globozoospermia. DESIGN: A case report. Method: A 36-year-old man and 32-year-old partner visited our fertility center with 6 years infertility duration. The semen analysis revealed globozoospermia combined with oligozoospermia which was stained with Diff-Quick method. ICSI (Intracytoplasmic sperm injection) was performed on 12 matured oocytes. RESULT: 5 injected oocytes were fertilized normally. 5 embryos were transferred on day 3 after oocyte retrieval. The patient became pregnant and delivered a healthy boy at 39 weeks of gestation. CONCLUSION: In case of globozoospermia, it has a low fertilization rate even though ICSI method is used. The favorable technique is still needed to increase the fertilization rate.
Key Words: Globozoospermia; ICSI (Intracytoplasmic sperm injection)
