This monograph on practical spermatology deals with the diagnosis and therapy of male sterility. It contains chapters on anatomy, biology, and functions of the male sex organs; detailed description of semen; procedures of fertility examinations of the male; male hypogonadism; critical appraisal of male fertility; and therapy of fertility disturbances.

The author states that therapeutic results of male fertility disturbances are not very encouraging and that the significance of artificial insemination in the treatment of sterility is highly overrated.

An up-to-date bibliography on the subject is added. This monograph gives a thorough presentation of all significant examination procedures in spermatology and should be valuable to physicians of various specialties.
