Kartagener syndrome

Common Name(s)

Kartagener syndrome, Dextrocardia-Bronchiectasis-Sinusitis

Kartagener syndrome is a type of primary ciliary dyskinesia associated with situs inversus (mirror-image reversal of internal organs). Kartagener syndrome is inherited in an autosomal recessive fashion and is characterized by the triad of situs inversus, bronchiectasis and sinusitis.  About 50% of individuals with primary ciliary dyskinesia have Kartagener syndrome.
