Background
High white blood cell concentrations in semen, referred to as leuco-cytospermia, have been associated with genital tract infection and poor semen quality. The predominant white blood cell type is the polymorphonuclear granulocyte, normally comprising 50 - 80% of total seminal white blood cells. This subpopulation can be detected using a peroxidase test which visualizes the enzyme peroxidase in cells.

The WHO Manual classifies the detection of white blood cells in semen as a standard, rather than an optional, method for the examination of human semen.
