Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) is a genetically heterogeneous autosomal recessive disorder characterized by recurrent infections of the respiratory tract associated with the abnormal function of motile cilia. Approximately half of individuals with PCD also have alterations in the left-right organization of their internal organ positioning, including situs(More)
Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) is a genetically heterogeneous disorder characterized by chronic destructive airway disease and randomization of left/right body asymmetry. Males often have reduced fertility due to impaired sperm tail function. The complex PCD phenotype results from dysfunction of cilia of the airways and the embryonic node and the(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with allergic rhinitis (AR) frequently develop asthma. This initiating inflammation in the lower airways may result in increased levels of inflammatory mediators such as adenosine in the exhaled breath. OBJECTIVE We compared adenosine levels in exhaled breath condensate (EBC) and both exhaled and nasal nitric oxide (NO) levels of AR(More)
Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) is a genetically heterogeneous disorder characterized by recurrent infections of the airways and randomization of left/right body asymmetry. The phenotype results from dysfunction of motile cilia of the respiratory epithelium and the embryonic node. Dysmotile sperm tails often cause infertility in male PCD patients.(More)
The results of 867 diagnostic bronchoscopies, between August 1992 and August 1993, were studied by the retrospective analysis of the patients' files. The average age of the children was 46 months (6 days-25 years). The proportion of girls and boys were 38.6% and 61.4%. Data of the history were: therapy resistant recurrent wheezy bronchitis in 31.9%,(More)
