Abstract

The diagnosis of primary ciliary dyskinesia requires familiarity with the clinical picture and the specific techniques of identification. Although the basic mechanism of disease is known, the molecular genetics of primary ciliary dyskinesia and the causes for the phenotypic variability remain to be explained. Future research should be directed to the identification of the gene(s) responsible for the manifestations of the disease and to effective methods of activation, in vivo, of dysfunctional cilia.
