Abstract: According to data suggesting that in males with leukocytospermia, infertility is more prevalent, a study according to exiting data, extracted from registers of infertile patients referred to "Kowsar center for infertility" was done, for determining of leukocytospermia prevalence and comparing it in patients with spinal cord injury (SCI) and those without SCI. In 410 cases of infertile males, 171 and 239 sperm grams from patients with SCI and those without SCI were studied, respectively. Existence of SCI and number of WBC HPF in semen registered in a data chart. In patients with SCI is almost all of patients there was a higher number of WBC HPF than normal (> 0-1) - (eg. Leukocytospermia) 87.1% which the highest was> 50 WBC HPF (32.7%) and then 1 -5 WBC HPF (15.2%). In patients without SCI, 57.8% were in normal range of WBC in semen (0-1 WBC \r HPF) (eg no leukocytospermia) and 26.8% had 1-5 WBC HPF. There was a significant difference between prevalence of leukocytospermia in these two groups.
