Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia (PCD) is an orphan disease characterized by recurrent respiratory infections and an increased prevalence of situs inversus and male infertility. Low nasal Nitric Oxide (nNO) is used as a new test to diagnose PCD. The test sensitivity is good, but specificity has not been studied widely. Therefore, we evaluated the diagnostic accuracy of low nNO to diagnose PCD in a large cohort, including healthy patients and different disease controls.
