What is Kartagener syndrome?

Kartagener Syndrome is a combination of three conditions, situs inversus (mirror-image reversal of internal organs), chronic sinus infections, and bronchiectasis. It is a condition of the cilia cells. The cilia are defective and can not properly move bacteria and mucous out of the body.
