Intracytoplasmic sperm injection has revolutionised the management of male infertility. We report two cases that demonstrate the successful application of this technology in Nigeria in the management of both oligospermia and azoospermia. The first case relates to the treatment of a 31-year-old woman who required intracytoplasmic sperm injection of her husband's sperm for the treatment of both tubal fertility and male infertility. She had three embryos transferred on 9th June 1999 and was delivered of healthy male and female infants by caesarean section in January 2000 at 33 weeks gestation. The second case describes a 38-year-old woman who required intracytoplasmic sperm injection of the husband's surgically collected sperm for the management of azoospermia. She had two embryos transferred on 16th December 1999 and was delivered of a healthy male infant by caesarean section on 19th July 2001.
