Study group discussion: Kartageners syndrome

What is Kartagener syndrome?

Immotile cilia syndrome

May result in Situs inversus
Bronchiectasis
Sinusitis

Glue ear too!

Infertiliy? Sperm motility is also affected i guess

Sperm motility is affected.
The protein involved is 'dynein'.

I've seen a case of Kartageners in my hospital. The auscultation and looking at radiographs was fascinating!
