OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the risk of male infertility among patients with hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection.
DESIGN: A nationwide, population-based cohort study.
SETTING: Not applicable.
PATIENT(S): Men infected with HBV (n = 5,138) and men without HBV infection (n = 25,690).
MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Male infertility, as defined by the International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification.
RESULT(S): The incidence of infertility was 1.59 times higher in patients with HBV infection than in those without HBV infection (2.21 vs. 1.39 per 1,000 person-years). The risk of developing infertility remained significant among patients with HBV infection (hazard ratio 1.52, 95% confidence interval 1.20-1.92) after adjusting for covariates in a multivariate Cox proportional hazards model.
CONCLUSION(S): The data show an increased incidence and risk of infertility among men with HBV infection compared with men without HBV.
