Resumo

Apresentouse para atendimento uma mulher de 48 anos, branca, natural e procedente de Uberaba-MG, com quadro de dispneia em repouso, febre, tosse produtiva, escarro esverdeado e dor torácica ventilatório-dependente há 3 dias. Durante a investigação foi visualizada, em radiograma e tomografia de tórax, presença de dextrocardia e consolidação em lobo inferior direito por processo broncopneumónico. Optou-se por internamento e antibioticoterapia. Prosseguiu-se investigação com realização de tomografia de mastóides e cavidades paranasais que indicaram otomastoidite crónica bilateral e imagens de sinusopatia crónica permitindo diagnosticar um caso de síndroma de Kartagener. O nosso objectivo é aduzir novos dados àqueles que pesquisam o assunto para que estejam atentos ao eventual aparecimento desta malformação.

Abstract

A White, 48-year-old woman, natural from Uberaba-MG, presented herself to hospital. She had a picture of rest dispnea, fever, productive cough, greenish catarrh and ventilatory-depend-ent thoracic pain, for 3 days. During investigation, through radiogram and thoracic tomography, it was visualized the presence of dextrocardia and consolidation in low right lobe by bron-chopneumonic process. It was opted for hospitalization and antibiotic therapy. Investigation was carried on with tomography of mastoids and paranasal cavities which showed bilateral chronic otomastoiditis and images of chronic sinusopathty allowing the diagnosis of a case of Kartagener Syndrome. Our purpose in this case report is to include new informations for who search about this syndrome.
