The purpose of our study was to analyze the relationship of leukocytospermia to sperm DNA damage as assessed by the DNA integrity assay. Results indicate that leukocytospermia has a significant negative effect on the standard semen parameters of concentration, motility, and morphology but at most a very weak effect on DNA integrity as measured by the DNA fragmentation assay.
