Dear colleagues,
 
We are delighted to share the exciting news. A Special Issue of Asian Journal of Andrology fully dedicated to the thematic area of Varicocele has been published. Varicocele and Male Infertility: Current Concepts and Future Perspectives contains the seminal work of renowned scientists and clinicians from 15 countries on five continents. In 29 chapters, comprehensive reviews on the pathophysiology, epidemiology, diagnosis, and management of varicocele are presented; they dissect our current knowledge about varicocele from a multitude of angles.
 
Sandro Esteves, MD, PhD
Medical and Scientific Director
I had the honor to serve as a Guest Editor of this Special Issue in collaboration with Prof. Ashok Agarwal (Cleveland Clinic, USA) and contribute a few articles. We recommend  its contents to students and researchers in the biological and medical sciences and clinicians involved in the management of infertile couples, including urologists, andrologists, gynecologists, embryologists, and reproductive specialists interested in following the exponential growth in the knowledge of varicocele.
