The ultrastructural analysis of cilia and diagnosis of primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) in biopsies of airway epithelium is sometimes confounded by poor sampling, inconsistencies in tissue quality and processing, and other technical problems. Although clinical findings may lead to a presumptive diagnosis, ultrastructural analysis of ciliary axonemes is the… CONTINUE READING
