A case of a couple with primary infertilityfor two years is presented. Both partners were evaluated thoroughly, with a finding of male infertility. The man was found to be azoospermic after two semenalysis were performed. The Follicle Stimulating hormone (FSH) was raised with low testosterone levels indicating testicular failure. The recommended treatment was testicular biopsy with cryopreservation of the sperm and subsequent Intra cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI).
