Abstract  
Background: Kartagener's syndrome (KS), a subgroup of primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD), is a rare genetic disorder that causes infertility and ectopic pregnancy presumably due to defective ciliary function in fallopian tube. Case: The authors report a 31-year-old female, who was diagnosed with KS, with primary infertility for six years. In vitro fertilization and embryo transfer (IVF-ET) was performed and the patient conceived successfully. Conclusions: For women with primary infertility associated with chronic respiratory symptoms, PCD should be highly suspected. Superovulation and intrauterine insemination would not increase the chance of pregnancy in women with PCD. IVF-ET is considered the optimum treatment of choice in infertile women with PCD.
