Cilia don't work ...: Primary ciliary dyskinesia is a disorder of cilia (moving hair-like structures on the surface of cells) causing chronic respiratory tract infections, sometimes abnormally positioned internal organs, and sometimes difficulty having children (infertility). Men with sperm that don't swim can be treated with icsi; women may have abnormal function of their fallopian tubes. http://1.usa.gov/u4tuug.
