Clinical manifestation of Campylobacter enteritis in children
Joon Yeol Bae, Dong Hyuk Lee, Kyung Ok Ko, Jae Woo Lim, Eun Jeong Cheon, Young Hwa Song, Jung Min Yoon
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2018;61(3):84-89.   Published online February 28, 2018
Purpose

Timely antibiotic therapy in selected cases of diarrhea associated with bacterial infections can reduce the duration and severity of illness and prevent complications. The availability of a predictive index before identification of causative bacteria would aid in the choice of a therapeutic agent.

Methods

The study included patients admitted to the pediatrics unit at Konyang University Hospital for acute inflammatory diarrhea from...

The improvement of right ventricular function after adenotonsillectomy in children with obstructive sleep apnea
Dong Yeop Kim, Kyung Ok Ko, Jae Woo Lim, Jung Min Yoon, Young Hwa Song, Eun Jeong Cheon
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2018;61(12):392-396.   Published online October 26, 2018

Purpose: Adenotonsillar hypertrophy (ATH) that causes upper airway obstruction might lead to chronic hypoxemic pulmonary vasoconstriction and right ventricular (RV) dysfunction. We aimed to evaluate whether adenotonsillectomy (T&A) in children suffering from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) due to severe ATH could improve RV function. Methods: Thirty-seven children (boy:girl=21:16; mean age, 9.52±2.20 years), who underwent T&A forsleep apnea due to ATH, were...

Granular cell tumor of the esophagus in an adolescent
Ji Sun Lee, Kyung Ok Ko, Jae Woo Lim, Eun Jeong Cheon, Young Jin Kim, Jang Sin Son, Jung Min Yoon
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2016;59(Suppl 1):S88-S91.   Published online November 30, 2016

Esophageal granular cell tumor (GCT) is a rare neoplasm originating from the Schwann cells of the submucosal neuronal plexus. Histology is the gold standard for its diagnosis. Endoscopic resection or surgical excision should be considered, depending on the potential for malignancy. Here, we report a case of an esophageal GCT in an adolescent. A 12-year-old boy presented with a 1-year...

Age-adjusted plasma N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide level in Kawasaki disease
Heul Jun, Kyung Ok Ko, Jae Woo Lim, Jung Min Yoon, Gyung Min Lee, Eun Jung Cheon
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2016;59(7):298-302.   Published online July 31, 2016
Purpose

Recent reports showed that plasma N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) could be a useful biomarker of intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) unresponsiveness and coronary artery lesion (CAL) development in Kawasaki disease (KD). The levels of these peptides are critically influenced by age; hence, the normal range and upper limits for infants and children are different. We performed an age-adjusted analysis of plasma...

Fecal calprotectin concentration in neonatal necrotizing enterocolitis
Jung Min Yoon, Ju Yi Park, Kyung Ok Ko, Jae Woo Lim, Eun Jeong Cheon, Hyo Jeong Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2014;57(8):351-356.   Published online August 25, 2014
Purpose

Among the many factors associated with acute intestinal mucosal infection, numerous studies have proposed the usefulness of fecal calprotectin. The aim of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of fecal calprotectin in the diagnosis of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC).

Methods

We collected 154 stool samples from 16 very low birth weight and premature newborns at the Konyang University Hospital neonatal intensive care...

Effect of early postnatal neutropenia in very low birth weight infants born to mothers with pregnancy-induced hypertension
Yang Hee Park, Gyung Min Lee, Jung Min Yoon, Enn Jung Cheon, Kyung Ok Ko, Yung Hyuk Lee, Jae Woo Lim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2012;55(12):462-469.   Published online December 20, 2012
Purpose

In this study, we aimed to investigate the perinatal clinical conditions of very low birth weight (VLBW) infants born to mothers with pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH) focusing on the effects of early postnatal neutropenia.

Methods

We reviewed the medical records of 191 VLBW infants who were born at Konyang University Hospital, between March 2003 and May 2011. We retrospectively analyzed the clinical characteristics...

Case Report
A case of Kawasaki disease preceding a retropharyngeal abscess
Hee Ok Park, Jae Woo Lim, Eun Jung Cheon, Kyung Ok Ko
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2008;51(5):542-545.   Published online May 15, 2008
Epidural hematoma (EDH) is relatively rare in newborn infants and frequently associated with instrumental deliveries or other complications during labor and delivery. Although surgical evacuation has been the most common therapy, many other procedures have been suggested. Although many epidural hematomas require surgical evacuation rather than non-surgical management, the conservatiob or aspiration of hematoma have been attempted. In the case...
