Systemic disease has major effects on male reproductive health, although these are not always recognised. Management of any medical disorder should include careful consideration of the effects of illness and its treatment on androgen secretion, fertility, and sexuality. A functional reproductive system is a profoundly valued aspect of a healthy life and it is an important, albeit often unstated, expectation of medical care that reproductive function is preserved and protected. Hence, recognition of this important but easily overlooked aspect of medical care should form a part of optimal management of chronic medical illness (1).
