It prevents chloride ions from crossing the cell membranes properly. This can clog organ ducts. In the lungs, the extra mucus crushes the cilia and leads to more lung infections. Medications can help; in late-stage disease, lung transplantation may be life-saving. ...Read more

What is a a stuttering priapism?

Recurrent erections: Priapism describes an erection that remains present even in the absence of sexual stimulation. There are two types: low flow (more common) and high flow (arterially based).

Important to get priapism evaluated/treated emergently! ...Read more

Cystic fibrosis, is it sexlinked?

Cystic fibrosis, is it sexlinked?

Autosomal recessive.: Cystic fibrosis (CF) is not sex-linked, but autosomal recessive. That means both parents can be silent carriers--totally unaware--then each passes down this recessive (inactive) gene to their child. This child develops CF because both copies of the formerly inactive gene (1 from each parent) now have no genetic "brake" (normal dominant gene) to prevent the CF gene from expressing itself. ...Read more
