Abstract

Leydig cells are placed inside the interstitium tissue between seminiferous tubules. The research included biopsies of cryptorchid testes of 15 men (aged 18 - 27). As controls, samples of biopsies of two patients (aged 28 and 29) who had a car accident, were used. The aim of this thesis was to investigate possible changes in diameters of Leydig cells nuclei and seminiferous tubules according to controls. A quantitative analysis was done by methods of morfometry and included comparison of the control samples and samples of testicles of infertile men in connection with the diameters of seminiferous tubules and and of Leydig cells nuclei beside seminiferous tubules and blood vessels. The results of this research show lower values for diameter of Leydig cells nuclei by seminiferous tubules and also along with blood vessels at cryptorchid testes according to controls (P < 0.01). Also, diameter of seminiferous tubules was significantly lower at cryptorchid testes related to controls (P < 0.01).
