  • Ciliary dyskinesia, primary, 26 (CILD26) [MIM:615500]: A disorder characterized by abnormalities of motile cilia. Respiratory infections leading to chronic inflammation and bronchiectasis are recurrent, due to defects in the respiratory cilia. Patients may exhibit randomization of left-right body asymmetry and situs inversus, due to dysfunction of monocilia at the embryonic node. Primary ciliary dyskinesia associated with situs inversus is referred to as Kartagener syndrome. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:24094744}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. Cilia in nasal epithelia show the absence of both outer and inner dynein-arm components and complete paralysis.
