Kartagener syndrome

(redirected from Kartagener triad)

Kar·ta·ge·ner syn·drome

(kahr-tag'ĕ-nĕr), [MIM*244400]
complete situs inversus associated with bronchiectasis and chronic sinusitis associated with ciliary dysmotility and impaired ciliary mucous transport in the respiratory epithelium. The mechanism of the reversal of laterality remains an enigma, but it appears to be strictly an abolition (indifference) of laterality rather than a true reversal. Autosomal recessive inheritance with variable penetrance.
