Abstract

Background: Intracytoplasmic sperm injection is a widespread and powerful method enabling men with low sperm quantity and quality to become a father. But there are increased risks of many problems for the offspring  such as congenital malformations, chromosomal abnormalities, infertility, epigenetic diseases, delayed neuropsychological development when compared with naturally conceived children.


Case report
: We present a case of 6-year-old male patient born following ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection) with clinical and radiological features of Goldenhar syndrome as well as a history of the operation due to unilateral cryptorchidism. His karyotyping showed the chromosomal constitution of 47,XXY


Conclusion
: Clinicians should be aware of the risks for  the increasing number of patients born following ICSI to maximise children's health and welfare.
