Sperm Production

Do males with CdLS have any difficulties with sperm production?

I don’t think that we are aware of any problems in sperm production (or function) if the testicles are normal.  For males with undescended or removed testicles there would not be normal sperm production. However, it does seem that most of the familial cases (individuals with CdLS having children) are through women rather than men.
