Leukocytospermia or pyospermia is defined as having white blood cells in the semen, with a concentration that is above 1 million per milliliter. The cause of this sperm disorder is an infection in the seminal tract, which should be treated with antibiotics, as it can affect spermatogenesis (sperm production process), and lead to oligospermia or teratozoospermia.
