Summary:

The aim of the study is to improve the treatment of patients with male reproductive organs pathology, formed by chronic brucellosis infection. Material and methods: We have analyzed the dynamics of the clinical manifestations of diseases of the scrotal organs, data of physical and ultrasound studies, semen parameters, the quality of life in 22 patients with chronic brucellosis and the presence of orchitis / orchiepididymitis against conventional therapy (10 patients), and combined treatment with the inclusion of cycloferon (i/m, 2 injection rate from 5 (0.25g) with a break 10 days) — 12. Results: We have proved ability of cycloferon to reduce the severity of the inflammatory process in the testis and epididymis, with improving of spermatogenesis and the quality of life for patients. We have marked the reduction in the number of exacerbations of chronic orchitis / orchiepididymitis 2.4 times after the course of cycloferon, its good tolerability of patients, no side effects. Conclusion: Using these results, the presence of anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory potencies, cycloferon can be recommended in treatment of inflammatory lesions of the scrotal organs in patients with chronic brucellosis.
