Mesenchymal stem cells transplantation for neuroprotection in preterm infants with severe intraventricular hemorrhage
So Yoon Ahn, Yun Sil Chang, Won Soon Park
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2014;57(6):251-256.   Published online June 30, 2014

Severe intraventricular hemorrhaging (IVH) in premature infants and subsequent posthemorrhagic hydrocephalus (PHH) causes significant mortality and life-long neurological complications, including seizures, cerebral palsy, and developmental retardation. However, there are currently no effective therapies for neonatal IVH. The pathogenesis of PHH has been mainly explained by inflammation within the subarachnoid spaces due to the hemolysis of extravasated blood after IVH. Obliterative...

Case Report
A novel PRF1 gene mutation in a fatal neonate case with type 2 familial hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis
Jae Yeon Kim, Jeong Hee Shin, Se In Sung, Jin Kyu Kim, Ji Mi Jung, So Yoon Ahn, Eun Sun Kim, Ja-Young Seo, Eun-Sook Kang, Sun-Hee Kim, Hee-Jin Kim, Yun Sil Chang, Won Soon Park
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2014;57(1):50-53.   Published online January 31, 2014

Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) occurs in the primary form (genetic or familial) or secondary form (acquired). The familial form of HLH (FHL) is a potentially fatal autosomal recessive disorder that occurs because of constitutional defects in cell-mediated cytotoxicity. Here, we report a fatal neonatal case of type 2 FHL (FHL2) that involved a novel frameshift mutation. Clinically, the newborn presented with...

Sequential magnetic resonance spectroscopic changes in a patient with nonketotic hyperglycinemia
Ji Hun Shin, So Yoon Ahn, Jeong Hee Shin, Se In Sung, Ji Mi Jung, Jin Kyu Kim, Eun Sun Kim, Hyung Doo Park, Ji Hye Kim, Yun Sil Chang, Won Soon Park
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2012;55(8):301-305.   Published online August 23, 2012

Nonketotic hyperglycinemia (NKH) is a rare inborn error of amino acid metabolism. A defect in the glycine cleavage enzyme system results in highly elevated concentrations of glycine in the plasma, urine, cerebrospinal fluid, and brain, resulting in glycine-induced encephalopathy and neuropathy. The prevalence of NKH in Korea is very low, and no reports of surviving patients are available, given the...

Idiopathic severe hypermagnesemia in an extremely low birth weight infant on the first day of life
Hye Sun Hyun, Hyun Sin Choi, Jin Kyu Kim, So Yoon Ahn, Hey Soo Yoo, Eun Sun Kim, Yun Sil Chang, Won Soon Park
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2011;54(7):310-312.   Published online July 31, 2011

A preterm female infant born at 27 weeks of gestation with a birth weight of 990 g developed acute hypotonia, apnea, hypotension and bradycardia mimicking septic shock syndrome at 14h after birth. Laboratory tests indicated a severe hypermagnesemia of 45 mg/dL. The renal function, complete blood count and maternal blood concentrations of magnesium were normal, and the blood cultures were...

Outcomes of small for gestational age micropremies depending on how young or how small they are
Hee Joon Yu, Eun Sun Kim, Jin Kyu Kim, Hye Soo Yoo, So Yoon Ahn, Yun Sil Chang, Won Soon Park
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2011;54(6):246-252.   Published online June 30, 2011
Purpose

The outcomes of small for gestational age (SGA) infants especially in extremely low birth weight infants (ELBWIs) are controversial. This study evaluated the mortality and morbidity of ELBWIs, focusing on whether or not they were also SGA.

Methods

The medical records of 415 ELBWIs (birth weight <1,000 g), who were inborn and admitted to the Samsung Medical Center neonatal intensive care unit...

Effect of SynagisⓇ (palivizumab) prophylaxis on readmission due to respiratory syncytial virus in very low birth weight infants
Soo Kyoung Park, Yu Jin Jung, Hye Soo Yoo, So Yoon Ahn, Hyun Joo Seo, Seo Heui Choi, Myo Jing Kim, Ga Won Jeon, Soo Hyun Koo, Kyung-Hoon Lee, Yun Sil Chang, Won Soon Park
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2010;53(3):358-363.   Published online March 15, 2010
Purpose : The aim of this study was to determine the efficacy of SynagisⓇ (palivizumab) in reducing the respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) readmission rate in very low birth weight infants (VLBWI ) and the subgroup that showed the most effective vaccination. Methods : We enrolled 350 VLBWI who had been discharged alive from the neonatal intensive care unit of Samsung Medical...
Analysis of prognostic factors of laparotomy for necrotizing enterocolitis in extremely low birth weight infants
Jin Kyu Kim, Yi Sun Kim, Hye Soo Yoo, So Yoon Ahn, Hyun ju Seo, Seo Heui Choi, Soo Kyung Park, Yu Jin Jung, Myo Jing Kim, Ga Won Jeon, Soo Hyun Koo, Kyung-Hoon Lee, Yun Sil Chang, Won Soon Park
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2010;53(2):167-172.   Published online February 15, 2010
Purpose : With improved survival of extremely low birth weight infants (ELBWI), there is an increase in the incidence of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) requiring laparotomy, and the risk of morbidity and mortality in these ELBWI is increased. Thus, we determined the prognostic factors in ELBWI who underwent laparotomy for NEC. Methods : We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 35 ELBWI...

Pseudohypoaldosteronism in a premature neonate with severe polyhydramnios in utero
So Yoon Ahn, Son Moon Shin, Kyung Ah Kim, Yeon Kyung Lee, Sun Young Ko
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2009;52(3):376-379.   Published online March 15, 2009
We report a case of a premature newborn baby who presented with hyponatremia, hyperkalemia, and metabolic acidosis accompanied by severe polyhydramnios in utero. The baby was diagnosed with pseudohypoaldosteronism on the basis of normal 17-hydroxyprogesterone levels, elevated aldosterone, and clinical symptoms. His serum electrolyte levels were corrected with sodium chloride supplementation. Sodium supplementation was reduced gradually and discontinued at 5...

The effect of rooming-in care on the emotional stability of newborn infants
So Yoon Ahn, Sun Young Ko, Kyung Ah Kim, Yeon Kyung Lee, Son Moon Shin
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2008;51(12):1315-1319.   Published online December 15, 2008
Purpose : We aimed to examine the effect of rooming-in care on newborn infants emotional stability by comparing them with those cared for in a nursery. Methods : Forty-eight full-term newborn infants born at Cheil General Hospital between July 1 and October 31, 2007, were enrolled. Twenty-four newborn infants were roomed-in in their mothers rooms (rooming-in group), and 24 newborns...
