Hwang Min Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2004;47(12):1262-1265.   Published online December 15, 2004
Childhood immune thrombocytopenic purpura(ITP) is a typically benign self-limiting bleeding disorder of not fully known autoimmune etiology. Chronic ITP, which is defined by duration of more than 6 months, occurs in approximately 20% of children. Neither the risk of bleeding nor the type of disease, acute or chronic, can be predicted at initial presentation. The indication of treatment, choice...

Hwa Jun Yun, Ko Woon Jeon, Hwang Min Kim, Seok Won Park, Young Uh
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2002;45(5):664-668.   Published online May 15, 2002
A twenty six months-old boy developed hemophagocytic syndrome during the course of Kawasaki disease. Despite the appropriate treatment modalities for Kawasaki disease, he developed thrombocytopenia, hepatomegaly, high-grade fever, hypertriglyceridemia, peripheral gangrene, and evidence of hemophagocytosis in bone marrow biopsy. Although the course was stormy, he responded well to a combination therapy of corticosteroid and etoposide.

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...
