Synopsis

A genetically heterogeneous group of disorders with autosomal recessive inheritance characterized by defective ciliary motion (in respiratory tract, nasal and paranasal sinuses, spermatozoa, and embryonic nodal cilia) and impaired mucociliary clearance, with various manifestations including chronic respiratory tract infections, heterotaxy, and male infertility. Due to involvement of embryonic nodal cilia, body symmetry is random and up to 50% of patients will have situs inversus totalis.

For more information, see OMIM.
