Abstract

To date only 3 pregnancies have been reported following treatment of emission failure. We report the fourth one obtained from a male with an history of retroperitoneal lymphadenectomy. Pharmacological treatment induced antegrade ejaculation of a small semen drop wich was unsuccessfully inseminated during 15 cycles. In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) obtained a good fertilization rate and full-term twin pregnancy at the third attempt. IVF clearly widens the possibility of treating infertility in case of failure of ejaculation

Resume

Il n’a été rapporté jusqu’ici que 3 grossesses après traitement de stérilités par éjaculation sèche. Nous rapportons la 4ème, obtenue à partir d’un homme avec antécédents de curage ganglionnaire rétropéritonéal. Le traitement pharmacologique induisit l’éjaculation antégrade d’une petite goutte de sperme dont l’insémination pendant 15 cycles n’obtint pas de grossesse. La Fécondation In Vitro (FIV) obtint un bon taux de fécondation, et une grossesse gémellaire menée à terme au 3ème essai. La FIV élargit manifestement les possibilités de traitement des infertilités par anéjaculation.
