J Urol. 1984 Dec;132(6):1165-6. doi: 10.1016/s0022-5347(17)50080-4.


The immotile cilia syndrome is an inherited disorder characterized by the inability of ciliated structures to beat effectively. The urological manifestation of this syndrome is sterility. We report a case of the immotile cilia syndrome associated with polycystic kidney, which also is a hereditary disease.
