Uveitis as an important ocular sign to help early diagnosis in Kawasaki disease
Han Seul Choi, Seul Bee Lee, Jung Hyun Kwon, Hae Soon Kim, Sejung Sohn, Young Mi Hong
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2015;58(10):374-379.   Published online October 21, 2015
Purpose

Incomplete Kawasaki disease (KD) is frequently associated with delayed diagnosis and treatment. Delayed diagnosis leads to increasing risk of coronary artery aneurysm. Anterior uveitis is an important ocular sign of KD. The purpose of this study was to assess differences in laboratory findings, including echocardiographic measurements, clinical characteristics such as fever duration and treatment responses between KD patients with and...

Clinical characteristics and serum N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide as a diagnostic marker of Kawasaki disease in infants younger than 3 months of age
Hyun Kyung Bae, Do Kyung Lee, Jung Hyun Kwon, Hae Soon Kim, Sejung Sohn, Young Mi Hong
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2014;57(8):357-362.   Published online August 25, 2014
Purpose

The incidence of Kawasaki disease (KD) is rare in young infants (less than 3 months of age), who present with only a few symptoms that fulfill the clinical diagnostic criteria. The diagnosis for KD can therefore be delayed, leading to a high risk of cardiac complications. We examined the clinical characteristics and measured the serum levels of N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic...

An inhibitory effect of tumor necrosis factor-alpha antagonist to gene expression in monocrotaline-induced pulmonary hypertensive rats model
Jung Hyun Kwon, Kwan Chang Kim, Min-Sun Cho, Hae Soon Kim, Sejung Sohn, Young Mi Hong
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2013;56(3):116-124.   Published online March 18, 2013
Purpose

Tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α is thought to contribute to pulmonary hypertension. We aimed to investigate the effect of infliximab (TNF-α antagonist) treatment on pathologic findings and gene expression in a monocrotaline-induced pulmonary hypertension rat model.

Methods

Six-week-old male Sprague-Dawley rats were allocated to 3 groups: control (C), single subcutaneous injection of normal saline (0.1 mL/kg); monocrotaline (M), single subcutaneous injection of monocrotaline...

Left ventricular dysfunction measured by tissue Doppler imaging and strain rate imaging in hypertensive adolescents
Hye Mi Ahn, Sun Ok Jung, Jung Hyun Kwon, Young Mi Hong
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2010;53(1):72-79.   Published online January 15, 2010
Purpose : Left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy and impaired diastolic function may occur early in systemic hypertension. Diastolic dysfunction is associated with increased cardiovascular risk. Tissue Doppler imaging (TDI)-derived tissue velocity and strain rate are new parameters for assessing diastolic dysfunction. The aim of this study is to determine whether TDI and strain rate imaging (SRI) would improve the ability to...
Chest X-ray Findings and Serum Tumor Necrosis Factor-α Levels in Patients with Kawasaki Disease
Ji Young Kim, Jung Hyun Kwon, Kyung Hyo Kim, Jung Hyun Yu, Young Mi Hong
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2005;48(5):534-538.   Published online May 15, 2005
Purpose : Kawasaki disease(KD) is a multisystemic inflammatory vasculitis of unknown etiology. Many complications other than cardiovascular involvement have been recognized in KD. However, there have been few reports published concerning involvement of the lungs in this disease. The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between serum TNF-α, the degree of coronary artery dilatation and chest X-ray(CXR)...
Benign Transient Hyperphosphatasemia of Infancy and Childhood
Jung Hyun Kwon, Ji Hye Park, Hae Soon Kim, Seung Joo Lee, Mi Ae Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2005;48(3):306-309.   Published online March 15, 2005
Purpose : The aim of study is to investigate the clinical manifestations and the etiology of markedly-elevated serum alkaline phosphatase(ALP) levels in children without accompanying liver or bone disease. Methods : The serum ALP and other biochemical laboratory data of 4,989 patients attending the pediatric department of Ewha Womans University Mokdong Hospital between January 2002 to December 2002 were studied. The...
Serum Insulin, Insulin-like Growth Factor-I and Insulin-like Growth Factor Binding Protein-3 Levels in Obese Adolescents
Jung Hyun Kwon, Hyun Jin Kim, Young Mi Hong
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2005;48(11):1172-1178.   Published online November 15, 2005
Purpose : Childhood Obesity is increasing throughout the world, and it is known to incur many diseases especially in later life such as diabetes and cardiovascular disorders. The purpose of this study was to investigate the association between obesity and insulin, insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I), insulin-like growth factor binding protein-3(IGFBP-3) and know if these factors are useful in predicting cardiovascular...
