Dear Liz

ICSI is an acronym which stands for Intra-Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection. It involves the injection of a single sperm into a single egg under high magnification microscopy. ICSI is of great value in instances of severe sperm abnormalities or extremely low sperm count, or in cases where sperm is extracted form testicular tissue.
