Bronchiectasis Oligospermia

Common Name(s)

Bronchiectasis Oligospermia

Bronchiectasis - Oligospermia is a condition characterized by defective, widened airways within the lungs (bronchiectasis) and problems with sperm production (Oligospermia). Problems with sperm production are caused by abnormalities of cells in the testicles which are responsible for generating sperms. Defective, widened airways can lead to breathing problems, cough, and increase risk of infections such as pneumonia. Individuals with this condition can have severe breathing problems. Individuals are more prone to fatigue and specific bacterial infections. Doctors are usually able to diagnose this condition in childhood based on a history of breathing problems and getting sick from infections often can be signs of this condition. Treatment is developed on a case-by-case basis and depends on the specific needs on the patient. Doctors can provide anti-bacterial medication to help prevent individuals from getting bacterial infections. Doctors may also suggest that individuals not participate in activities involving heavy physical activity.
