|Abstract:||A case of a 32-year-old paraplegic male who fathered a girl following artificial insemination after an intrathecal neostigmine injection is described. The patient became a complete paraplegic after injury to the spinal cord caused by a traffic accident in 1971, resulting in ejaculatory disturbance. In June, 1984 the first intrathecal neostigmine injection was tried and 2.7 ml of semen was collected and offered to artificial insemination. However, the first to ninth attempt did not result in fertilization. The tenth attempt was made in March 7, 1986, and 3 ml of semen presenting 240 X 10(6) spermatozoa per ml with 5% of motile sperms was collected. This resulted in pregnancy, and the patient's wife delivered a healthy girl weighing 2552 g by cesarean section on November 19, 1986. This is the fourth case of a paraplegic who fathered a child following artificial insemination after an intrathecal neostigmine injection in the Japanese literature.|
