MalaCards: Varicocele, also known as scrotal varices, is related to infertility and male infertility. An important gene associated with Varicocele is AZF1 (azoospermia factor 1), and among its related pathways are Hormone ligand-binding receptors and Glucocorticoid receptor regulatory network. The compounds deslorelin and pergonal have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include testes, testis and prostate, and related mouse phenotypes are integument and endocrine/exocrine gland.
