In the pathogenesis of sub-fertility/infertility and testicular cancer related to undescended testes, oxidative stress, inflammation and autoimmunity are important factors. Therefore, the present study was designed to determine serum oxidative stress markers and carbonic anhydrase (CA) II autoantibodies in boys with undescended testes (UDT), and to investigate the relationship between these parameters.
