Different frequency of cilia with transposition in human nasal and bronchial mucosa. A case of acquired ciliary dyskinesia


Nasal and bronchial cilia and spermatozoa of a patient with a high clinical suspicion of a ciliary dyskinesia syndrome were ultrastructurally studied and quantified. Defective cilia showed two types of axonemal patterns: 9d+0s and 8d+1d. Of these, 9d+0s cilia prevailed in the proximal region, whereas 8d+1d prevailed in the distal region. Translocation of a… (More)
