Berdon 9 Estimated H-index: Situs and the fact that the organs are usually located to the right or left do not have yet a satisfactory explanation regarding their correlation with KS, and new theories have been proposed in this regard. Further paraclinical tests included a chest x-ray that showed dextrocardia, with no signs of consolidation or pleural effusion. The immotile cilia syndrome: You can also scroll through stacks with your mouse wheel or the keyboard arrow keys.


Case 2 Case 2.

The infectious respiratory compromise presented by patients with KS can be explained by cilia alteration, which leads to the malposition of some organs, as well as to structural and functional alteration of others. The incidence of primary ciliary dyskinesia PKD is estimated dde 1 case per 10 to 20 births based on surveys of situs inversus and bronchiectasis ; however, its frequency is difficult to determine due to the diagnostic difficulty related to nonspecific clinical pictures.

It is usually diagnosed during childhood, with a small number of cases discovered in adults and even fewer among patients over 60 years enfefmedad age. Differential diagnoses of KS should be framed in its possible causal relationship with primary ciliary dyskinesia and other diagnoses associated with kartagner ciliary dysfunction, such as cystic fibrosis, immunodeficiency and anatomical-functional enfermedar with rhinosinusitis and pulmonary infections involvement.
