Mia Lee, Soo Youn, Baek Keun Lim, Jong Soo Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2005;48(2):148-153.   Published online February 15, 2005
Purpose : The aim of this study was to determine the reference ranges of serum albumin levels depending on the gestational ages of preterm infants. We also intended to compare the mean serum albumin levels between groups of preterm infants that did not develop clinical disorders later, and groups that did develop clinical disorders such as respiratory distress syndrome, intraventricular...

A Case of Vascular Leak Syndrome During Induction Chemotherapy of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia(T Cell Type)
Kye Wool Kang, Hwang Min Kim, Won Kyu Choi, Baek Keun Lim, Chang Hun Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2001;44(9):1041-1046.   Published online September 15, 2001
Vascular leak syndrome(VLS) is characterized by endothelial damage, which causes extravasation of plasma proteins and fluid from capillaries into the extravascular space. It has been suggested that the increased vascular permeability is the result of an IL-2-induced suppression of endothelin- 1 secretion by endothelial cells, an IL-2-induced activation of the complement cascade or TNF-αrelease from IL-2-activated T-cells. A 13-year-old male patient visited our hospital...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2001;44(6):664-668.   Published online June 15, 2001
Purpose : The purposes of this study were to elucidate the diagnostic significance of mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration(MCHC) for various kinds of hemolytic anemia, the mechanism of elevated MCHC in hereditary spherocytosis(HS).

A Case of Propionic Acidemia
Woo Seop Yeoum, Kwang Wook Lee, Byeong Ho Chae, Baek Keun Lim, Hong Jin Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1999;42(8):1159-1164.   Published online August 15, 1999
Propionic acidemia is an autosomal-recessive inborn error of branched-chain amino acid metabolism. It is caused by deficient activity of propionyl-coenzyme A carboxylase and is characterized by a spectrum of clinical and biochemical findings. It usually manifests in the neonatal period or early infancy. Since Childs et al first described the propionic acidemia of infants in 1961, it has rarely been...
A Case of Idiopathic Hypoparathyroidism Associated with Graves' Disease

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1999;42(5):716-721.   Published online May 15, 1999
Graves' disease is a relatively rare endocrinologic disorder in childhood age and often associated with other endocrinologic disorders such as type I diabetes mellitus and Addison's disease etc. Also, it is associtated with non-endocrinologic autoimmune diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus, myasthenia gravis, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, vitiligo and pernicious anemia. However, idiopathic hypoparathyroidism associated with Graves' disease is very...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1997;40(6):850-856.   Published online June 15, 1997
Purpose : We performed this study to determine the diagnostic significance and useful cut-off value of reticulated platelet, which can be used for discriminating the destructive thrombocytopenia from underproductive thrombocytopenia. Methods : We evaluated 37 patients with thrombocytopenia who were admitted to the Wonju christian hospital from March to July, 1995. All patients were evaluated with bone marrow megakaryocyte count. We divided them into two...

A Case of Multicystic Encephalomalacia in a Liveborn Twin with a Stillborn Co-twin
Mi Ya Park, Kyung Hee Kim, Jae Seung Yang, Baek Keun Lim, Jong Soo Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1997;40(3):429-433.   Published online March 15, 1997
Multicystic encephalomalacia is the condition defined anatomically by the presence of multiple cavities in the great part of both cerebral hemispheres. The most common cause of the condition was regarded as the circulatory disturbance during the perinatal period. Also,neonatal asphyxia was the most important cause of the circulatory disturbance. But we experienced a case of multicystic encephalomalacia in a liveborn twin with a stillborn...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1995;38(9):1283-1287.   Published online September 15, 1995
Acyclovir is generally regarded as a safe and highly effective antiviral agent in normal, as well as in immunocompromised hosts. Major renal complication was unusual. However, reversible renal dysfunction has been reported. The impairment of renal nephropathy resulting from crystal formation in the renal tubules or the collecting ducts. But we experienced a case of immunocompetent patient who developed severe...
Three Cases of Pneumoperitoneum in Ventilated Newborns
Chun Ok Yang, Ho Young Lee, Won Kju Choe, Baek Keun Lim, Jong Soo Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1995;38(7):1006-1011.   Published online July 15, 1995
Pneumoperitoneum in the newborn is usually a surgical emergency resulting from gastroint-estinal perforation. However, pneumoperitoneum can occur secondary to a pulmonary air leak which progresses from the mediastinum to the retroperitoneum by way of perivascular spaces and then to the peritoneum following rupture. We have observed this phenomenon in three ventilated newborn. A brief review of the related literatures was...
A Case of Congenital Dyserythropoietic anemia Type IV

Congenital dyserythropoietic anemia(CDA) is characterized by ineffective erythropoiesis an d increased numbers of multinucleated red cell precursors in the marrow. This syndrome has b een subdassified on the basis of morphologic and serologic differences in the red cell pecursors.

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1994;37(2):282-287.   Published online February 15, 1994
Brachyecphaly is a kind of craniosynostosis. Because of premature closure of the coronal suture, the skull is shorter in the anteroposterior diameter but is widened with a high vault and the occiput and borehead are flattened. Diabetes insipidus had been reported in oxycephaly. We have experienced a case of central diabetes insipidus associated with brachcephaly. A brief review of related literatures...
