Clinical implications in laboratory parameter values in acute Kawasaki disease for early diagnosis and proper treatment
Yu-Mi Seo, Hyun-Mi Kang, Sung-Churl Lee, Jae-Won Yu, Hong-Ryang Kil, Jung-Woo Rhim, Ji-Whan Han, Kyung-Yil Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2018;61(5):160-166.   Published online May 28, 2018

This study aimed to analyse laboratory values according to fever duration, and evaluate the relationship across these values during the acute phase of Kawasaki disease (KD) to aid in the early diagnosis for early-presenting KD and incomplete KD patients.


Clinical and laboratory data of patients with KD (n=615) were evaluated according to duration of fever at presentation, and were compared between...

P wave dispersion on 12-lead electrocardiography in adolescents with neurocardiogenic syncope
Dong-Hyuk Lee, Kyung-Min Lee, Jung-Min Yoon, Jae-Woo Lim, Kyung-Ok Kho, Hong-Ryang Kil, Eun-Jung Cheon
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2016;59(11):451-455.   Published online November 18, 2016

Neurocardiogenic syncope (NCS) is the most frequent cause of fainting during adolescence. Inappropriate cardiovascular autonomic control may be responsible for this clinical event. The head-up tilt test has been considered a diagnostic standard, but it is cumbersome and has a high false-positive rate. We performed a study to evaluate whether P-wave dispersion (PWD) could be a useful electrocardiographic parameter of...

Familial Sick Sinus Syndrome
In-Hye Nam, Sung-Hee Cheon, Hong-Ryang Kil
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2003;46(2):195-197.   Published online February 15, 2003
Sick sinus syndrome(SSS) constitutes a spectrum of cardiac arrhythmia, including sinus bradycardia, sinus pause-arrest, sinoatrial block, slow escape rhythm, bradyarrhythmia and tachyarrhythmia. SSS is relatively uncommon in children but its exact incidence is unknown because diagnostic criteria are not uniform and most children with SSS, in general are asymptomatic. SSS may be primary(organic sinus node disease) or secondary(cardiac surgery comprises...

Corticosteroids Add-on Therapy in the Acute Phase of Kawasaki Disease
Seon-Mi Kang, Eun-Kyung Moon, Su-Mi In, Hong-Ryang Kil
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2002;45(12):1571-1576.   Published online December 15, 2002
Purpose : Recently, clinical trials of steroid add-on therapy were reported with variable results in Kawasaki disease. We analyzed the clinical outcomes of patients at high risk of with Kawasaki disease(≥4 points of Harada score) treated by three commonly used different treatment regimens, with or without corticosteroids. Methods : Medical records of 96 children with Kawasaki disease treated with one of...
Clinical Features of Isolated Noncompaction of the Ventricular Myocardium
Eun-Kyoung Moon, Hoon-Young Lee, Mea-Young Chang, Hong-Ryang Kil, Yong-Hun Chung
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2002;45(12):1528-1533.   Published online December 15, 2002
Purpose : Isolated noncompaction of the ventricular myocardium(INVM) is one of the unclassified cardiomyopathies that is characterized by numerous, excessively prominent trabeculations, and deep intertrabecular recesses. We performed this study to evaluate the clinical features of INVM in children. Methods : The medical records of 10 patients with INVM were reviewed. We analyzed the clinical manifestations, hemodynamics, pattern of inheritance,...
A Change of Adrenal Androgen and Cortisol in Kawasaki Disease
Sun-Hee Lee, Jae-Hong Yu, Hong-Ryang Kil
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2002;45(5):654-658.   Published online May 15, 2002
Purpose : Endocrine and immune systems are connected and interdependent. Adrenal glands play an important role in this network and control the balance between serum levels of dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate(DHEAS) and cortisol. These steroids have an antagonistic effect on the T cell progression into Th1 and Th2 cells and on the induction of correlated interleukins. Therefore we evaluated the role of...

Pulmonary Valve Absence and Tetralogy of Fallot in CATCH 22
Hye-Young Ryu, Byoung-Lo Jin, Jin-Man Kim, Hong-Ryang Kil
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2002;45(1):137-140.   Published online January 15, 2002
Congenital absence of the pulmonary valve associated with Tetralogy of Fallot(TOF) is a relatively rare cardiac malformation. In the majority of cases, this lesion is associated with ventricular septal defect, obstructive pulmonary valve annulus, and massive dilatation of the pulmonary arteries. This combination of lesions is often called tetralolgy of Fallot and absent pulmonary valve. Although survival beyond infancy is frequent, a number of...
