An Unusual Case of Kartagener’s Syndrome with Fertility

  • General Medicine

Abstract Situs inversus, chronic sinusitis, and bronchiectasis together make up the trinity that characterize the uncommon autosomal recessive genetic ciliary condition known as Kartagener’s syndrome. The fundamental issue is the improper movement of cilia, which causes infertility, frequent chest infections, and ear, nose, and throat complaints. A fertile male with Kartagener’s disease is a unique case of this rare entity, which we are reporting here. The significance of having a high index of suspicion in such patients cannot be stressed to arrive at an early diagnosis and, whenever possible, provide alternatives for fast treatment and avoid needless symptom evaluation.
