PRIMARY CILIARY DYSKINESIA


Alternate names

PRIMARY CILIARY DYSKINESIA Is also known as ics, polynesian bronchiectasis, ciliary dyskinesia, primary, 1, with or without situs inversus, pcd, immotile cilia syndrome

Description

Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) is a rare, genetically heterogeneous, primarily respiratory disorder characterized by chronic upper and lower respiratory tract disease. Approximately half of PCD patients have an organ laterality defect (situs inversus totalis or situs ambiguus/heterotaxy; see these terms).

Most common symptoms of PRIMARY CILIARY DYSKINESIA

  • Hearing impairment
  • Ventriculomegaly
  • Respiratory distress
  • Hydrocephalus
  • Headache

CILIARY DYSKINESIA, PRIMARY, 28; CILD28


Alternate names

CILIARY DYSKINESIA, PRIMARY, 28; CILD28 Is also known as ciliary dyskinesia, primary, 28, with or without situs inversus

Description

Primary ciliary dyskinesia-28 is an autosomal recessive disorder caused by defective ciliary movement. Affected individuals have recurrent upper and lower airway disease, bronchiectasis, and decreased fertility. About half of patients show laterality defects, including situs inversus. Respiratory cilia from patients show defects in both the inner and outer dynein arms (summary by Knowles et al., 2013).For a general phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of primary ciliary dyskinesia, see CILD1 (OMIM ).

Most common symptoms of CILIARY DYSKINESIA, PRIMARY, 28; CILD28

  • Respiratory distress
  • Dyskinesia
  • Recurrent otitis media
  • Bronchiectasis
  • Situs inversus totalis
