Hello, my friends. My cousin has been recently administrated to the hospital. She had pneumonia. While there, she was also diagnosed with Kartagener syndrome. I have never heard about such a syndrome before, so I would like to know what it is. Does anyone know? I would appreciate if someone could answer me.

Hello, folks. Kartagener syndrome is also known as primary ciliary dyskinesia. This is a genetic disorder. Cilia on the surface of cells are not functioning properly. It affects cells in respiratory tract and fallopian tubes. In this way, mucus cannot be eliminated properly. This can lead to many respiratory diseases. Pneumonia, sinusitis and other diseases are relatively common for these people. I hope your friend will be fine. Bye!
