X-rays cause deleterious effects in male gonial tissue, as indicated by quantitative and histologic studies. Evidence indicates that arrest takes place in secondary spermatocytes or inability of spermatids to mature. Arrest of spermatocytes could be the result of an additive effect of irradiation or the spermatocytes could be more radiosensitive.
