Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia (PCD) is a rare disease, which means that any single PCD center has experience with a limited number of patients. PCD Registry is the collection of data about PCD from many centers and countries who treat children with PCD. Collecting data about PCD increase the knowledge on PCD, better describe the course of the disease, and help to better understand the progression of the disease and be used to develop new treatments.
In the PCD registry of Alberta, important information about PCD such as time of diagnosis, symptoms, and tests which led to the diagnosis, state of health at diagnosis, the progression of lung function, the occurrence of severe infections, tests and treatments data will be collected from the patients' medical records.
In order to better characterize the clinical course, and improve the diagnosis and treatment of PCD, the investigators propose to establish a provincial PCD registry in Alberta. This registry will be securely linked to the currently existing International Registry for PCD and will allow more researchers to use the information to do research on PCD.
The investigators will collect demographic data: current age, sex, age, diagnostic findings and symptoms at diagnosis; in addition, clinical data about PCD which are recorded during the past and future clinical visits and encounters (e.g. lung function, weight, height, infections, treatments, and complications) will also be collected.

Cough is a key symptom in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) and primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD).
In patients with primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD), the release of nitric oxide (NO) is extremely low by epithelia of the nasopharynx and sinuses. Measurement of nasal NO (nNO) is recommended as a scre...
Diagnosis of primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) relies on a combination of tests. High-speed video microscopy analysis (HSVA) is widely used to contribute to the diagnosis. It can be analysed on the day...
Abnormal involuntary movements which primarily affect the extremities, trunk, or jaw that occur as a manifestation of an underlying disease process. Conditions which feature recurrent or persistent episodes of dyskinesia as a primary manifestation of disease may be referred to as dyskinesia syndromes (see MOVEMENT DISORDERS). Dyskinesias are also a relatively common manifestation of BASAL GANGLIA DISEASES.
A motility disorder characterized by biliary COLIC, absence of GALLSTONES, and an abnormal GALLBLADDER ejection fraction. It is caused by gallbladder dyskinesia and/or SPHINCTER OF ODDI DYSFUNCTION.
A ring of tissue extending from the scleral spur to the ora serrata of the retina. It consists of the uveal portion and the epithelial portion. The ciliary muscle is in the uveal portion and the ciliary processes are in the epithelial portion.
Conditions caused by abnormal CILIA movement in the body, usually causing KARTAGENER SYNDROME, chronic respiratory disorders, chronic SINUSITIS, and chronic OTITIS. Abnormal ciliary beating is likely due to defects in any of the 200 plus ciliary proteins, such as missing motor enzyme DYNEIN arms.
A ciliary neurotrophic factor receptor subunit. It is anchored to the cell surface via GLYCOSYLPHOSPHATIDYLINOSITOL LINKAGE and has specificity for binding to CILIARY NEUROTROPHIC FACTOR. It lacks signal transducing domains which are found on the other two subunits of the receptor.
