Abstract

BACKGROUND:

This report presents a case where electroejaculation (EEJ) was used for semen cryopreservation (SCP), prior to gonadotoxic anti-cancer treatment in a 14-year old boy diagnosed with Hodgkins disease.

METHOD:

Two sessions of EEJ were performed with an interval of 48 hours.

RESULTS:

No complications were seen and the procedures resulted in nine frozen straws of motile spermatozoa.

CONCLUSION:

EEJ is a safe and feasible procedure for SCP in an adolescent cancer patient who is unable to masturbate or use penile vibratory stimulation (PVS).

KEYWORDS:
