    Annotation 155 samples of healthy donors and infertile men ejaculate were examined at the light and ultrastructural levels in order to determine morphological parameters of spermogram which is important to assess the potential of male fertility. It was determined that the most significant, statistically significant indicator is the pathology of the sperm head, the percentage of which is 2.5 times higher in the group of male patients with infertility. Among the pathological varieties of heads the difference between the rates and forms with a small head and amorphous forms of vacuolised acrosome dominated - more than 3 times between groups. All other indicators of detailed pathologic sperm infertility were in about 2 times higher than in healthy donors. It was also found that in electron microscopic study the percentage of sperm pathological forms was higher due to better visualization of male gametes ultrastructure.
