Ah-Reum Choi, Sun-Hee Choi, Seong-Wan Kim, Dong-Wook Sung, Yeong-Ho Rha
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2008;51(6):660-664.   Published online June 15, 2008
The term tracheal bronchus refers to an abnormal bronchus that comes directly off of the lateral wall of the trachea (above the carina) and supplies ventilation to the upper lobe. Tracheal bronchi occur almost exclusively on the right trachea and are associated with other congenital anomalies. In addition, tracheai bronchus may be related to other inflammatory conditions with persistent wheezing,...
Bronchial foreign body aspiration diagnosed with MDCT
Hye Kyung Cho, Ky Young Cho, Sung Yoon Cho, Sejung Sohn
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2007;50(8):781-784.   Published online August 15, 2007
Foreign body aspiration (FBA) is a common accident in young children. Undiagnosed and retained foreign bodies may result in severe early and late complications such as asphyxia, pneumonia, atelectasis and bronchiectasis. Moreover, because it can mimic bronchiolitis, croup or asthma, an accurate history and a high index of suspicion are of paramount importance for early diagnosis. With our experience on...
The VACTERL Association : Tracheal Stenosis, Tracheal Bronchus and Partial Pulmonary Agenesis, Instead of Tracheoesophageal Fistula
Ji Sook Park, Hae Young Lee, Jong Sil Lee, Ji Hyeon Seo, Jae Young Lim, Myong Bum Choi, Chan Hoo Park, Hyang Ok Woo, Hee Sang Youn
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2004;47(10):1119-1123.   Published online October 15, 2004
VACTERL association is a disease with multiple congenital anomalies of the vertebrae, anus, cardia, tracheoesophageal(TE) fistula, renal and limb. This disease is derived from VATER anomaly, accompanied by cardiac and limb anomalies. We experienced a case of a 1-day-old boy with anal atresia, who represented multiple anomalies during hospital course. The multiple anomalies were hemivertebra, anal atresia, complex heart disease(coarctation...
A Case of Bronchial Mucoepidermoid Carcinoma in Child
In Jeong Kim, Jin Soo Hwang, In Seok Kim, Byung Ju Kim, Jae Sook Ma
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1999;42(4):580-583.   Published online April 15, 1999
Bronchial mucoepidermoid carcinoma is very rarely encountered in children. We report a case of bronchial mucoepidermoid carcinoma in a 10-year-old boy who presented with persistent cough and atelectasis. Bronchoscopic examination showed a tumor mass occluding the right bronchus intermedius, and the mass was removed by bronchoscopy. The results of the pathological examination revealed low-grade mucoepidermoid carcinoma. He underwent right middle...
Four Cases of Pulmonary Artery Sling with Bridging Bronchus
Seung A Lee, Jung Yeon Shim, Young Hwue Kim, Jae Kon Ko, In Sook Park, Soo-Jong Hong, Chang Yee Hong
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1997;40(5):709-715.   Published online May 15, 1997
Pulmonary artery sling with bridging bronchus is not only rare but also difficult to diagnose unless specially sought. When young infant suffers from prolonged or recurrent wheezing, possibility of underlying anomalies of the tracheobronchial trees or great vessels should be considered, even though bronchiolitis and gastroesophageal reflux are the most common causes. We experienced four cases of pulmonary artery sling with...

Congenital Esophageal Atresia Associated with Tracheal Bronchus and Imperforate Anus.
Si Houn Hahn, Keun Haeng Cho, Young Sook Hong, Soon Kyum Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1989;32(4):550-555.   Published online April 30, 1989
Esophageal atresia occurs once in 3000-4500 live births. These anomalies are thought to arise from defective differentiation of the primitive foregut into trachea and esophagus. defective growth of entodermal cells leading to atresia and an incomplete fusion of the lateral walls of the foregut to form a tracheoesophageal fistula. A full-term male baby was admitted to Guro Hospital with chief complaints of respiratory difficulty, chocking,...

Childhood Bronchial Mycoepidermoid Tumor a Case Report and Review of the Literature.
B Ahn, H D Cha, Y D Kwon, C M Kang
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1985;28(11):1158-1162.   Published online November 30, 1985
Mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the bronchus in a 13-years-old boy was presented. The case was diagnosed by bronchoscopic examination and with the findings of light microscopy. There was no evidence of metastasis and tumor was completely removed by mid and lower lobectomy. Mucoepidermoid carcinoma is a very rare tumor especially in children arising from the bronchial gland.
