Reifenstein syndrome is a familial form of male pseudohermaphroditism characterized by ambiguous genitalia or hypospadias, postpubertal, abnormally large breasts, and infertility associated with sclerosis of the seminal tubules. In the present study, a Sudanese man was visited andrology clinic in Reproductive Health Care Center (RHCC) in Khartoum, Sudan. The patient complains of primary infertility for 5 years. He has the history of bilateral undescended testes for which he underwent a surgery of orchiopexy. The scrotum is not well formed, the penis is small in size, and external urethral meatus is not present at the tip of penis but inpenoscrotal (hypospadias). His semen showed oligonecropermia. The patient was diagnosed with infertility due to oligonecrosprmia. Artificial testosterone supplementation, have a good response on semen volume, concentration and motility, increasing the chance of success in assisted reproduction techniques for a man with Reifenstein syndrome.
Keywords: oligonecrospermia, infertility, Reifenstein syndrome.
