Abstract

Kartagener syndrome (KS) is a rare disease with an incidence of 1 in 20,000 to 30,000 births. There is no cure for KS, and conservative medical treatments are used to relieve symptoms and prevent disease progression. Lung transplantation (LT) is the only treatment option for end-stage KS. Since patients with KS have anatomical abnormalities such as situs inversus totalis, which often require surgery to correct, most reports are related to surgical techniques. Reports about morphological adaptations and changes in transplanted lung structure after LT in patients with KS are rare. We performed LT in a patient with KS and observed morphological adaptation of the lungs for 6 months on chest computed tomography using a quantitative evaluation tool (Chest Image Platform; Harvard University Disability Resources, Cambridge, MA, USA).
