Wink Kartagener syndrome

Kartagener syndrome is caused by defective CILIA.
  • C hronic respiratory infections
  • I mmotile spermatozoa
  • L ame cilia
  • I nfertility
  • A bsence of dynein

Kartagener syndrome is characterized by immotile spermatozoa and infertility. It is due to an absence of dynein that is required for flagellar motility. It is usually associated with chronic respiratory infections because of similar defects in cilia of respiratory epithelium.
