Lessons From Unilateral Loss of Cilia: Early Nasal Nitric Oxide Gas Mixing and the Role of Sinus Patency in Determining Nasal Nitric Oxide

Abstract

Nasal nitric oxide (nNO) measurement is a diagnostic test for primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD). Here, we have shown the development of unilateral PCD-like symptoms associated with low nNO. A 60-year-old man had been previously healthy but developed unilateral, severe pansinusitis. He required surgical drainage of all left sinuses, and biopsies showed loss… (More)
