Jeong Eun Shin, Jae Won Shim, Deok Soo Kim, Hae Lim Jung, Moon Soo Park, Jung Yeon Shim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2015;58(5):190-193.   Published online May 22, 2015

Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) is a hypersensitivity lung disease due to bronchial colonization of Aspergillus fumigatus that occurs in susceptible patients with asthma or cystic fibrosis. A 10-year-old girl was referred to the Department of Pediatric Pulmonology for persistent consolidations on chest radiography. Pulmonary consolidations were observed in the right upper and left lower lobes and were not resolved with...

Chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) is an uncommon inherited disorder caused by mutations in any of the genes encoding subunits of the superoxide-generating phagocyte NADPH oxidase system, which is essential for killing catalase producing bacteria and fungi, such as Aspergillus species, Staphylococcus aureus, Serratia marcescens, Nocardia species and Burkholderia cepacia. In case of a history of recurrent or persistent infections, immune...

SY Bae, JH Jung, KH Kim, YM Hong, HS Koo, JY Seoh, KS Hong, ES Kang, YS Won, JH Yoo
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2000;43(3):444-449.   Published online March 15, 2000
Chronic granulomatous disease(CGD) is an uncommon inherited disorder in which phagocytic cells fails to produce antimicrobial superoxide(O2-) due to NADPH oxidase deficiency. This disease can be easily screened by PMA(phobol myristate acetate)-activated nitroblue tetrazolium(NBT) test. Also the disease has features of chronic pyogenic infection, granuloma formation, anemia, hypergammaglobulinemia, and leukocytosis. Treatment uses antibiotics sensitive to specific organism, surgical drainage...
A Case of Allergic Bronchopulmonary Aspergillosis During Childhood
Kyoung Ah Ha, Chang Keun Kim, Churl Young Chung, Jung Sook Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1999;42(2):284-288.   Published online February 15, 1999
Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis(ABPA) is an inflammatory disease which causes a hypersensitivity to Aspergillus spores growing in the bronchi. The clinical syndrome is characterized by asthma, recurrent pulmonary infiltrations or mucoid impaction, eosinophilia, and central bronchiectasis. A 12-year-old boy was admitted to our hospital because of right lower chest pain and cystic mass-like shadows on a chest X-ray film. He had...
