Year: 2015, volume 11 Issue: №4 Pages: 511-514
Heading: Macro- and Micromorphology Article type: Review

The actual problem recently determined is concerned with the reproductive disorders in men. Male infertility results from a variety of pathological processes in the body. It is known that most anomalies of organs of reproductive system develop in the period of prenatal ontogenesis. The review provides the data on embryogenesis of fetal testes and factors that can lead to disturbances in the formation of the testes and male infertility.
