Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD), previously known as immotile cilia syndrome, can cause respiratory and reproductive problems. Because of the impaired motion of microtubules the patients suffer upper respiratory tract problems. Infertility is an other issue of these patients. Several attempt have been proposed to bring back sperm motion and to improve intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) results. With our case we have described the management of a male infertility that causes from immotile cilia. The role of ICSI with incubated and activated ejaculatory sperm by pentoxifylline in the patient of PCD or as commonly named immotile . . .cilia syndrome. © 2008 Springer-Verlag

Objective: To compare the factors affecting sexual function in premenopausal women with type 2 diabetes using the female sexual function index (FSFI). Design: Cross-sectional study. Setting: Premenopausal women with type 2 diabetes and healthy volunteers in an academic research environment. Patient(s): Sixty-two type 2 diabetic women were compared with 50 controls. The FSFI scores of the patients were compared according to age, duration of diabetes, marriage, socioeconomic status, parity, menstruation regularity, body mass index (BMI), and smoking. Intervention(s): None. Main Outcome Measure(s): Female sexual function index scores. . . .Result(s): The mean FSFI score in diabetics was lower than in controls. Menstrual irregularity and duration of diabetes affected female sexual function unlike age, BMI, socioeconomic status, duration of marriage, or parity. Regularly menstruating women had higher FSFI scores (27.1 ± 6.7) than irregularly menstruating women (20.7 ± 7.4). Type 2 diabetics were divided into three groups according to duration of diabetes. The women having diabetes longer than 10 years had the worse sexual function. Also, smoking affected inversely female sexual well being. Conclusion(s): Menstrual disturbance, smoking, and longer duration of diabetes (more than 10 years) impair FSFI scores in premenopausal women with type 2 diabetes.
