Abstract:

Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia (PCD) is a rare genetic disease in which patients suer from recurrent airway infections and other pulmonary conditions as well as other cilia-related problems such as sterility and situs inversus. ere are many genes that are associated with PCD and these genes are responsible for either the structure or the function of the cilia. In this study, a family quartet consisting of unaected parents and their ospring with PCD was examined. One of the children shows more severe symptoms of PCD, while the other child has a milder phenotype. Two variants in the CFAP74 gene were identied as a compound heterozygous state in the child with severe PCD and one of these mutations is found in the child with milder PCD. Our results demonstrate the importance of carrying another causal variant on the severity of the phenotype
