Testicular biopsies and hormone profiles were obtained from 23 paraplegic patients who had sustained a complete spinal cord section. The hormone profiles were normal, but patients with a spinal lesion including the T10-L2 metameres showed a particular pattern of germinal cell abnormalities. The atrophy is multifactorial, but may well include destruction of the sympathetic innervation of the testis by the lesion.
