According to First Aid, Haemophilus influenzae, Moraxella catarrhalis, and S pneumoniae are the most common causes of pneumonia in people with COPD (2 PPD for 25 years + decreased breath sounds). Between H flu and S pneumo, only H flu is a gram-negative bacilli.

I'm not sure what they were going for on this question. Is it that bilateral varicoceles are the only answer correlated with decreased sperm count? Maybe testicular atrophy? Doesn't mention anything about the testes, so not sure what to think.

zjb80291  My best guesss: Sperm/semen need to be at a lower temperature than body temp (why testicles hang away from body). Varicoceles contain warm blood that would more likely cause infertility. +
