Testicular Microlithiasis

Description

Testicular microlithiasis, the deposition of calcium phosphate microliths within the seminiferous tubules, has a population prevalence of 0.6 to 9% (Kim et al., 2003). Middleton et al. (2002) found that it was associated with a majority of primary testicular malignancies. Miller and Sidhu (2002) found that it was present in 1% of male idiopathic infertility cases.
