  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

    Conclusions Severe hypochlorhydria generated by PPI use leads to bacterial colonisation and increased susceptibility to enteric bacterial infection.[] sinusitis.[] otitis media.[]

  • Hypogammaglobulinemia

    susceptibility to pyogenic infections.[] Recurrent or chronic upper and lower respiratory tract infections leading to bronchiectasis, chronic sinusitis or cor pulmonale are not common.[] Case description: A 41-year-old female with TS, hypothyroidism, and recurrent otitis media as a child presents with severe vitamin deficiencies including: iron, vitamin B12[]

  • Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia

    Asthma is associated with increased susceptibility to infection. Minerva Med (2015) 106:1–7. PubMed Abstract Google Scholar 44.[] This study included patients evaluated at our institution for recurrent or chronic upper respiratory conditions characterized by chronic sinusitis, chronic mucoid otitis,[] Seven cases were complicated with recurrent otitis media and 15 cases were complicated with infertility.[]

  • Primary Immune Deficiency Disorder

    The most common symptom of PIDD is an increased susceptibility to infection.[] Many of these infections, such as bronchitis, chronic sinusitis, otitis and pneumonia, affect the sinopulmonary system (i.e. sinuses, middle ear and/or lungs).[] Scarred tympanic membranes or chronic perforation due to recurrent otitis media is commonly seen in patients with antibody deficiencies.[]

  • Common Variable Immunodeficiency

    susceptibility to infections.[] […] was performed in 2 patients), chronic sinusitis – 75.4% ( Table 2 ).[] Antibody immunodeficiencies are marked by hypo- or dysgammaglobulinemia, recurrent bacterial otitis media, and sinopulmonary infections.[]

  • Kartagener Syndrome

    The result of this rare genetic disorder is absence or reduction in the mobility of the cilia, which in turn causes reduction or absence of mucus clearance and increased susceptibility[] The triad of situs inversus, chronic sinusitis and bronchiectasis is called Kartagener’s syndrome which is a subgroup of primary ciliary dyskinesia.[] ) Recurrent Otitis media (ear infections) Infertility What causes Kartagener syndrome?[]

  • Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia 7

    Asthma is associated with increased susceptibility to infection. Minerva Med (2015) 106:1–7. PubMed Abstract Google Scholar 44.[] BACKGROUND: Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) is a congenital hereditary disease affecting 1/20,000-60,000 people that causes chronic sinusitis, bronchiectasis, sinus hypoplasia[] Complications of PCD include respiratory difficulties and end-stage respiratory failure, permanent hearing loss due to recurrent otitis media, and rarely, hydrocephalus.[]

  • Sinusitis

    Sometimes a deviated septum, broken nose, or growths such as nasal polyps can make you more susceptible to sinus infections.[] Fever isn't a common sign of chronic sinusitis, but you might have one with acute sinusitis.[] […] and is controversial. 59 Although previously successful in children who experience recurrent episodes of acute otitis media, 61 ,62 there is little enthusiasm for this approach[]

  • Agammaglobulinemia

    Neither increased susceptibility to infections nor agammaglobulinemia have been described as a manifestation of terminal 14q32.33 deletion.[] A few individuals may need to take antibiotics every day to protect them from infection or to treat chronic sinusitis or chronic bronchitis.[] ., in addition to giardiasis) are typical for agammaglobulinemia patients, and recurrent otitis media is described in the vast majority of cases.[]
