Results: Among 842 infertile men,172 patients (20.4%) were azoospermic. 28 patients (16.3%) with obstructive azoospermia and 144 patients (83.7%) with non obstructive azoospermia were detected. Common causes of non obstructive azoospermia were as follow: idiopathic 68 patients (39.53%), atrophied testes 40 patients (23.25%) , sertoli cell only 34 (19.76%) patient, undescended testes 28 (16.27%) patients and post chemotherapy in 2 (1.16%) patients. Causes of obstructive azoospermia were obstruction of epididymis or vasa deferens in 24 patients (86%) and congenital bilateral agenesis of vasa deferens in 4 patients (14%).
