Choledochal cyst is a dilation that encloses the intrahepatic or both extra- and intrahepatic portions of the biliary ducts. Postnatally, ultrasonography is the initial diagnostic modality of choice, allowing for precise measurements of intra- or extrahepatic duct dilatation and identification of stones and sludge.

Giant platelet syndrome is a group of unique disorders characterized by the presence of abnormally large platelets, and usually accompanied by thrombocytopenia. Most cases of giant platelets are encountered in idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura(ITP). In contrast, inherited giant platelet disorders, a group of heterogeneous diseases, are rare. Bernard-Soulier syndrome and its variants, and MYH9 related diseases have been defined at the...

Thrombolytic Therapy and Long Term Follow-up Study in a Child with Kawasaki Disease Complicated by Giant Coronary Aneurysm with Thrombosis
Su Jung Moon, Su Ya Lee, Kyong Hee Na, Sun Young Park, Eun Young Kim, Kyoung Sim Kim, Yong Wook Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2003;46(3):302-307.   Published online March 15, 2003
The long-term clinical issues in Kawasaki disease are concerned with the coronary artery lesions that result in aneurysmal formation, thrombotic occlusion, progression to ischemic heart disease, and premature atherosclerosis. We here report a 3 month old infant with Kawasaki disease complicated by giant coronary aneurysm with thrombosis. After urokinase(10,000 IU/kg) and heparin(400 IU/kg) were injected for two days as thrombolytic...
A Case of Tuberous Sclerosis Complex Developing with Subependymal Giant-Cell Astrocytoma and Hydrocephalus
Ki Hyun Chung, Wan Sub Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1996;39(2):280-286.   Published online February 15, 1996
The subependymal giant-cell astrocytoma, a key feature of the tuberous sclerosis complex, has been reported in patients without obvious features of this condition. The tumor is a rare cerebral glioma that characteristically arise in the wall of lateral ventricle and as an intraventricular mass, causing hydrocephalus by obstruction of the foramen of Monro. We experienced a case of tuberous sclerosis...

Epstein's syndrome is a rare disease whish is characterized by the association of thrombocytopenia, macrothrombocytopathia, nephritis and deafness. We experienced a case of Epstein's syndrome in a 12 years old male patient who was presented with a life long history of bleeding, usually as epistaxis, bilateral sensorineural deafness and hematuria with proteinuria starting in the childhood. Hematologic studies showed thrombocytopenia with...
A Case of Two Giant congenital Aneurysms of the Right Coronary Artery

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1994;37(6):850-853.   Published online June 15, 1994
Aneurysms of the coronary arteries are rare. They may be due to atherosclerosis, mucocutaneous lymph node syndrome, mycotic emboli, syphilis or trauma and occasionally they are congenital. The prognosis appears to be poor and death can occur suddenly from rupture of the aneurysm, peripheral coronary embolism or bacterial endocarditis. Recently surgical treatment has been successful In a 5 year old patient with...

A case of tuberous sclerosis developing with subependymal giant-cell astrocytoma.
Young Chul Ahn, Yong Suk Choi, Pyoung Han Hwang, Jung Soo Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1991;34(7):1027-1033.   Published online July 31, 1991
Subependymal giant-cell astrocytoma is a rare cerebral glioma that characteristically arises in the wall of the lateral ventricle and presents as an intraventricular mass, causing hydrocephalus by obstruction of the foramen of Monro. The tumor mainly occurs in patients with tuberous sclerosis and is slow growing and well circumscribed, so that long survival after total surgical resection is often achieved. We experienced a cas^ of...
