The Sertoli cell in varicocele is reported to be more sensitive than germ cells to changes in the testicular microenvironment [28] and the structure of the TJ between Sertoli cells is damaged in experimental varicocele in the rat testis [29,30], implying that the Sertoli cell may be the primary altered intratubular site, leading to secondary spermatogenesis obstruction.
The lining epithelium consists of germinal and Sertoli cells, which appeared pyramidal in shape and resting on the basement membrane.

Possible hypotheses for this relationship include hypogonadotropic hyperestrogenic hypogonadism due to aromatization of steroids in estrogens in peripheral tissue; direct alterations of spermatogenesis and Sertoli cell function; hip, abdominal, and scrotal fat-tissue accumulation, leading to increased scrotal temperature; and accumulation of toxins and liposoluble endocrine disruptors in fatty tissue.
