A Case of Hereditary C7 Deficiency Associated with Meningococcal Meningitis
Hyun Woo We, Won Duck Kim, Sun Ju Lee, Dong Seok Lee, Doo Kwun Kim, Sung Min Choi, Gyoung Yim Ha
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2004;47(7):799-802.   Published online July 15, 2004
The complement system is composed of more than 25 different proteins and is usually divided into classical and alternative pathways. Complement component 7(C7) is one of the five terminal complement proteins that, upon activation of either the classical or the alternative pathway, interacts sequentially to form a large protein-protein complex, called membrane attack complex(MAC). Assembly of the MAC on target...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2004;47(4):392-398.   Published online April 15, 2004
Purpose : The cause of aseptic meningitis remains mostly unknown because viral culture and identification is difficult. Thus, we report a study on 123 children with aseptic meningitis in Gyeongju in 2002 to identify the causing virus and the relationship with the clinical manifestation. Methods : We prospectively investigated the patients, admitted to Dongguk University Hospital, into two groups between April...

Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome is a rare mesodermal phakomatosis characterized by cutaneous haemangiomata(usually unilateral and involving an extremity), venous varicosities and osseous and soft tissue hypertrophy, of the affected limb. Sturge-Weber syndrome, also a mesodermal pharkomatosis, is characterized by a port-wine nevus, which is present from birth and covers the face and cranium in the territory of the first division of the...
A Case of Partial Inverted Duplication of Chromosome 7q

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2003;46(5):510-513.   Published online May 15, 2003
Duplication of chromosome 7q has been reported as either partial or complete. Partial 7q duplication was first described by Carpentier in 1972. Pure partial duplication of the long arm of chromosome 7 is extremely rare and only 16 cases with a pure partial duplication of different 7q segment have been described in the literature. Pure partial duplication of the long...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2003;46(5):454-458.   Published online May 15, 2003
Purpose : Rotavirus is the main cause of infantile diarrheal disease worldwide. The purpose of this study is to assess the difference between clinical manifestations and feeding or delivery methods in healthy full-term neonates and those with nosocomially-acquired rotaviral infection. Methods : The study was conducted on 348 babies who were delivered in Dongguk University Kyongju Hospital from Jan 1...
Effect of Resuscitation with High Concentration Oxygen on a Rat Model of Neonatal Hypoxic-Ischemic Brain Injury
Dong Seok Lee, Su-Hee Kwak, Heng-Mi Kim, Yoon Kyung Sohn
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2001;44(11):1278-1288.   Published online November 15, 2001
Purpose : This study was undertaken to determine whether any features of apoptosis would occur in the established model of cerebral hypoxia-ischemia in neonatal rats. It was also undertaken to evaluate the effect of post-insult hyperoxia on hypoxic ischemic cerebral injury. Methods : Seven-day-old neonatal rats underwent unilateral carotid artery dissection followed by 2 hours of hypoxia. To this end...
The Effect of Tumor Necrosis Factor-α in Cultured Neonatal Rat Cardiomyocytes
Su Jin Kim, Dong Seok Lee, Ok Ko, Il Soo Mun, Bok Hyun Ko, Yong Wook Jung
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2001;44(11):1262-1268.   Published online November 15, 2001
Purpose : Tumor necrosis factor-α(TNF-α) is a pro-inflammatory cytokine that has been implicated in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular disease. Serum levels of TNF-α are elevated in many human cardiac related pathogenic conditions, including heart failure. It is well known that TNF-α inhibits myocardial contractility and induces apoptosis of adult rat cardiomyocytes via stimulation of TNF receptor 1. But pathophysiologically relevant...

Chondrodysplasia Punctata(Rhizomelic Type) Associated with Pneumothorax
Ji Sun Mok, Hye Won Hwang, Jin Eun Kim, Dong Seok Lee, Doo Kwun Kim, Seong Min Choi
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2001;44(8):965-970.   Published online August 15, 2001
Chondrodysplasia punctata is a rare congenital syndrome caused by a peroxisomal dysfunction. Chondrodysplasia punctata is classified into four main types-Coradi-Hunermann's type, rhizomelic type, X-linked dominant form and X-linked recessive form. A male patient with this condition was born at 39 weeks gestation, the pregnancy being complicated by polyhydroamnios, breech presentation, and anomalies of congenital limbs. At delivery, there was no...
A Case of Aseptic Meningitis Following Administration of Intravenous Immunoglobulin in A Patient with Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2001;44(4):433-442.   Published online April 15, 2001
Purpose : The developing brain has been reported to be extremely susceptible to toxicity of ischemia and/or hypoxia during a restriced developmental period. Hippocampal neuronal cell death is a typical type of perinatal hypoxic brain lesion and often coexists with other forms of cerebral hypoxic injuries. In the present study, we examined whether transcriptional changes of NR2A and NR2B subunits...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2000;43(2):223-228.   Published online February 15, 2000
Purpose : Intravenous gamma globulin(IVGG) treatment has reduced symptoms and complications in Kawasaki disease(KD). However, fever persisted in 20-30% of the patients, and there are no reliable data on the indication and dosage of IVGG re-treatment. Therefore, we tried to reveal the effectiveness of IVGG re-treatment and to find risk factors in predicting the re-treatment. Methods : Among 57 patients with...
