Cystic fibrosis is the most common autosomal recessive paediatric illness. The defect in the normal transport of chloride ions leads to viscid secretions in the gut, lungs, liver and reproductive system. It also leads to increased salt content in sweat gland secretions. Early diagnosis and multisystemic care is important. The condition has to be differentiated from chronic pancreatitis and bronchiectasis. Early mortality can occur if the condition is not diagnosed soon.
