Kartagener’s syndrome in adults: A case report

Kartagener’s syndrome is a special case of primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD).

It is characterized by a clinical triad of sinusitis, bronchiectasis, and situs inversus, which may be complete or incomplete. It is a rare congenital disorder with autosomal recessive inheritance, occurring in approximately one person in 32,000. We report the case of a 40-year-old female patient, admitted for preoperative work-up of nasosinusal polyposis.
