Heat stroke occurs when body thermal regulation is upset and unable to dissipate adequate amounts of heat with rise in body temperature. Thus heat stroke may result in rhabdomyolysis and multiorgan failure. We observed two childhood cases of heat stroke with rhabdomyolysis and multiorgan failure. One case was caused by accidentally being left in a car trunk for 3 hours on a sunny afternoon...

Major known causes of neonatal adrenal insufficiency are prolonged maternalsteroid use, adrenal hemorrhage from the perinatal stress and adrenogenital syndrome. Theoretically adrenal aplasia might be a cause of neonatal adrenal insufficiency but it has not been reported yet. We had experienced a case of adrenal aplasia in a 5 day-old male neonate whose chief complaint was hyperpigmentation. His laboratory findings were compatible...

Infected urachal cyst is a rare disorder. While a urachal cyst is usually asymptomatic, the infected cyst may mimic a variety of acute intraabdominal infection. We have experienced a case of infected urachal cyst in a 3 year old boy complaining of high fever and diarrhea. During hospitalization, symptoms and sings of acute peritonitis dominated the clinical feature. Abdominal sonogram, abdominal computerized tomography and cavitogram...

Song-Ja Kim, Hyang-Ok Woo, Seung-Hwan Kim, Mi-Ryeong Kim, Sun-Kyeong Sin, Hee-Shang Youn
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1994;37(2):180-184.   Published online February 15, 1994
Traditionally umbilical vein has been used for exchange transfusion in neonates. This method is relatively safe and effective but with a few complications. So via percutaneous femoral vein catheters we tried exchange transfusion in 30 patients with neonatal hyperbilirubinemia admitted to GNUH from September 1990 to August 1992. Femoral vein catheterization succeeded in 2~3 trials. In all cases high bilirubin level...
