What is primary ciliary dyskinesia? PCD is an abnormality of your cilia. Your cilia are hair-like structures that line the mucus membranes of your lungs, nose, and sinuses. Normal cilia move in a wave-like motion. They help transport mucus out of your airways, through your nose and mouth. This action helps clear your sinuses and lungs of germs that can cause infections. They may move in the wrong direction, move very little, or not move at all.
This impairs their ability to transport mucus and bacteria out of your respiratory tract. This can lead to chronic infections in your lower and upper airways. Chronic respiratory infections can lead to bronchiectasis. In this condition, your airways become widened and scarred. Common symptoms of bronchiectasis include chronic cough, shortness of breath, and fatigue. In some cases, your fingers and toes may become clubbed. This is probably caused by a lack of oxygen to your extremities.
You may also experience chronic sinusitis. This is a persistent infection that occurs in the hollow air spaces inside your skull, known as your sinuses. It involves inflammation and swelling. It can lead to recurrent ear infections, known as otitis media. These ear infections may be severe enough to cause permanent damage to your tissues.
They may even cause hearing loss. The moveable tails, or flagella, of sperm can also be affected by PCD. This can cause abnormal sperm motility and infertility in men. What is situs inversus? In situs inversus, your vital organs develop on the opposite side of your body than usual, forming a mirror image of the normal positioning. For example, your liver may develop on the left side of your body instead of the right.
This is also known as transposition.
Síndrome de disquinesia ciliar
Abstract: Kartagener syndrome us a rare autosomal recessive disease one in every 32, births , characterized by a triad of bronchiectasis, chronic sinusitis and situs inversus. We present the case of a year-old male with this disease and we review the pathophysiology, prognosis as well as the main diagnostic and therapeutic strategies. Keywords: Kartagener syndrome, primary ciliary dyskinesia, situs inversus. Su incidencia se estima aproximadamente en uno de cada Este trastorno en la motilidad ciliar se traduce en infecciones respiratorias altas y bajas recurrentes, producto de un aclaramiento mucociliar deficiente.
Síndrome de Kartagener: o que é, sintomas e como é feito o tratamento
Poco dopo la nascita i pazienti possono presentare rinorrea mucoide, spesso cronica. La sinusite cronica produce ricorrenti mal di testa pressione del seno nelle regioni mascellari e periorbitale. Altri disturbi otologici associati possono includere timpanosclerosi, colesteatoma, e cheratosi otturante. Il battito del cuore si sente meglio sul lato destro del torace. Gli antibiotici a basso dosaggio, per via endovenosa o per via orale, continui o intermittenti, sono usati per curare le infezioni delle vie aeree superiori e inferiori. La malattia polmonare ostruttiva, se presente, deve essere curata con broncodilatatori per via inalatoria e aggressiva pulizia polmonare. I mucolitici possono essere utili.
