Immotile cilia syndrome is a disease caused by congenital abnormality of the cilia and symptom complex composed by chronic rhinitis, sinusitis, otitis, male infertility etc. We have experienced 7 cases of immotile cilia syndrome diagnosed by electron microscopic finding of nasal or bronchial mucosal biopsies since 1984. Six cases were girls and type Id was most common (4 cases) on electron microscopic classification. And most of the patients showed gradual improvement with supportive therapy in several years. We reported 7 cases with review of related literature.
