We here report a successful healthy childbirth and an ongoing evolutive pregnancy in a case of partial globozoospermia after selection of mature spermatozoa bound to hyaluronic acid (HA). The couple underwent two in vitro fertilisation (IVF) cycles. In the first attempt, 14 MII oocytes were retrieved. Randomly, seven oocytes were injected by conventional PVP-ICSI and seven by HA-ICSI. Fertilised oocytes were 2/7 and 4/7 after PVP-ICSI and HA-ICSI respectively. Transfer of two grade A embryos from HA-ICSI lead to birth of a healthy baby. The surplus embryo of the HA-ICSI group was vitrified at blastocyst stage. The two embryos from PVP-ICSI arrested their development. Two years after the childbirth, the vitrified blastocyst was transferred into the uterus, but implant failed. In the second cycle, 14 MII oocytes were retrieved and they were injected by HA-ICSI. Fertilised oocytes were 10 out of 14 injected oocytes. On day 5, two blastocysts were transferred into uterus and a single evolutive pregnancy is ongoing. On day 6, one blastocyst was vitrified. The remaining surplus embryos arrested their development. A healthy childbirth and an ongoing evolutive pregnancy in two consecutive ICSI attempts of the same couple suggest that HA sperm selection might assist in cases with partial globozoospermia.
