Indeed, it is possible to have Situs Inversus without having PCD.

It can occur alone (isolated), without any other conditions or abnormalities. There are several famous people who have Situs Inversus without PCD, including Donny Osmond and Enrique Iglesias.

Around a quarter of people born with Situs Inversus will also have Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia.

How about Situs Inversus with bronchiecstasis but no PCD ?

Thank you so much for the response !!!
