Answer

Asymptomatic inflammatory prostatitis is characterized by the incidental discovery of prostatic inflammation without genitourinary complaints.

This disease entity can produce elevated white blood cells in the ejaculate (leukocytospermia) and can cause male infertility but is usually otherwise left untreated.
