Translated title:
Autoimmune diseases and male infertility
Summary:
During the last years new targeted regimen for several autoimmune diseases has been developed leading to an ameliorated quality of life for these patients. Nevertheless, their fertility potential seems to be impaired either by the activity of the autoimmune diseases or by the medical treatment used to suppress these conditions. A search of English-language articles from electronic databases was conducted for this paper. The results that were used referred to impaired fertility in male patients with systemic lupus erythematosus, Behcet’s disease, gout, dermatomyositis, celiac disease, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, inflammatory bowel disease, psoriasis and sarcoidosis. This systematic review intends to reveal how autoimmune diseases and their regimen affect male fertility.
