Abstract

A seven-year-old girl with Turner's syndrome, who suffered from recurrent respiratory system infections since birth, was investigated to determine the etiology of bronchiectasis. Electron microscopy of recurrent nasal biopsy specimens revealed ciliary aplasia. Ciliary aplasia in Turner's syndrome, has not previously been reported.
