Should transmission electron microscopy and ultrastructural cilia evaluation remain part of the diagnostic work-up for primary ciliary dyskinesia?

Abstract

The diagnostic work-up for primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) traditionally includes ciliary ultrastructural assessment using transmission electron microscopy (TEM). However, the identification of genetic variants of PCD that are missed by TEM, along with the development of novel diagnostic modalities for PCD that allow structural evaluation of cilia, such as… (More)
