The Kartagener syndrome, an entity that belongs to the ciliary dyskinesias, is of congenital origin, and is also hereditary. It highlights respiratory infections as the main symptom. We present the case of a 43-year-old male patient with a history of bronchiectasis, recurrent respiratory infections, a history of infertility and evidence of dextrocardia, bronchiectasis and sinusitis, thus establishing the diagnosis of this syndrome of low prevalence in the population total. It is presented with regard to the appearance of respiratory complications related to the time of evolution of the patient.

Key words: Kartagener syndrome, ciliary motility disorders, bronchiectasis.
