Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia

Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) is a rare and under-diagnosed genetic condition, likely occurring in 1 in 20,000 individuals in the United States. Primary ciliary dyskinesia in children results in a number of symptoms related to the abnormal motion of cilia (the tiny hair-like structures that line the respiratory tract and are found in other organ systems). Cilia play many roles in the body, including: organ arrangement during fetal development, filtration of the outside environment, and movement of secretions.
