Male infertility due to globozoospermia
Synonyms: Male infertility due to round-headed spermatozoa | Round-headed sperm syndrome
Male infertility due to globozoospermia is a male infertility due to sperm disorder characterized by the presence in sperm of a large majority of round-headed spermatozoa that lack the acrosome and have an aberrant nuclear membrane and midpiece defects. The acrosomeless spermatozoa is not able to penetrate the zona pellucida and thus fertilization failures even with intracytoplasmic sperm injection are frequent.
