Ciliary Respiratory Epithelium and Kartagener’s Syndrome

Cylia are pre-blooming cell structures used to move or displace substances, such as mucus or gametes. Therefore, these structures are found in the epithelial and gonadal tissues.

When the cilia suffer structural alterations it leads to their abnormal functioning. This is what happens in Kartagener's Syndrome, a genetic disease that belongs to the group of primary ciliary dyskinesias.
