In brief: Gentetic Disorder

Pcd is a genetic disorder. The cilia are tiny hair-like structures that line the airways and help to clear mucus and other debris.
Cilia are also present in the nose, sinuses, and parts of the upper airway. With this disorder, the cilia do not function properly and patients are predisposed to chronic ear, lung, & sinus infections.
