How can neurological outcomes be predicted in comatose pediatric patients after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest?
Hyo Jeong Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2020;63(5):164-170.   Published online October 10, 2019
The prognosis of patients who are comatose after resuscitation remains uncertain. The accurate prediction of neurological outcome is important for management decisions and counseling. A neurological examination is an important factor for prognostication, but widely used sedatives alter the neurological examination and delay the response recovery. Additional studies including electroencephalography, somatosensory-evoked potentials, brain imaging, and blood biomarkers are useful for...

Interstitial deletion of 5q33.3q35.1 in a boy with severe mental retardation
Jin Hwan Lee, Hyo Jeong Kim, Jung Min Yoon, Eun Jung Cheon, Jae Woo Lim, Kyong Og Ko, Gyung Min Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2016;59(Suppl 1):S19-S24.   Published online November 30, 2016

Constitutional interstitial deletions of the long arm of chromosome 5 (5q) are quite rare, and the corresponding phenotype is not yet clearly delineated. Severe mental retardation has been described in most patients who present 5q deletions. Specifically, the interstitial deletion of chromosome 5q33.3q35.1, an extremely rare chromosomal aberration, is characterized by mental retardation, developmental delay, and facial dysmorphism. Although the...

Ju Yi Park, Kyong Og Ko, Jae Woo Lim, Eun Jung Cheon, Jung Min Yoon, Hyo Jeong Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2014;57(12):542-545.   Published online December 31, 2014

Bickerstaff's brainstem encephalitis is characterized by ophthalmoplegia, ataxia, and disturbance of consciousness. It is similar to Miller Fisher syndrome, a variant of Guillain-Barre syndrome, in that they share features such as ophthalmoplegia and ataxia. The difference is that patients with Bickerstaff's brainstem encephalitis have impaired consciousness, whereas patients with Miller Fisher syndrome have alert consciousness and areflexia. Here, we report...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2014;57(8):351-356.   Published online August 25, 2014
Purpose

Among the many factors associated with acute intestinal mucosal infection, numerous studies have proposed the usefulness of fecal calprotectin. The aim of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of fecal calprotectin in the diagnosis of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC).

Methods

We collected 154 stool samples from 16 very low birth weight and premature newborns at the Konyang University Hospital neonatal intensive care...

Congenital muscular dystrophy type 1A with residual merosin expression
Hyo Jeong Kim, Young-Chul Choi, Hyung Jun Park, Young-Mock Lee, Heung Dong Kim, Joon Soo Lee, Hoon-Chul Kang
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2014;57(3):149-152.   Published online March 31, 2014

Congenital muscular dystrophy type 1A (MDC1A) is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by hypotonia, elevated serum creatine kinase level, delayed motor milestones, white matter changes observed by brain magnetic resonance imaging, and normal intelligence. A mutation in the laminin α2 (LAMA2) gene, located at 6q22-23, is a genetic cause of MDC1A. Patients have merosin (laminin α2)-deficient skeletal muscles. However, the...

Acute treatment of hyperammonemia by continuous renal replacement therapy in a newborn patient with ornithine transcarbamylase deficiency
Hyo Jeong Kim, Se Jin Park, Kook In Park, Jin Sung Lee, Ho Sun Eun, Ji Hong Kim, Jae Il Shin
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2011;54(10):425-428.   Published online October 31, 2011

Ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC) deficiency is well known as the most common inherited disorder of the urea cycle, and 1 of the most common causes of hyperammonemia in newborns. We experienced a case of a 3-day-old boy with OTC deficiency who appeared healthy in the first 2 days of life but developed lethargy and seizure soon afterwards. His serum ammonia level...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1992;35(5):621-629.   Published online May 15, 1992
This study was designed to evaluate the prevalence and significant features of 3,234 pediatric accidental patients who visited emergency room during 6 years period from January 1982 to December 1987. 1) The accidental pediatric patients were 26.7% of total pediatric patients who visited emergency room The frequency of Childhood accidents was increased in later 2 years period(34.7%) compared with the early...
A case of incontinentia pigmenti.
Kwang Ik Song, Hyo Jeong Kim, Jin Bok Hwang, Chang Ho Han, Hye Li Chung, Young Dae Kwon
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1991;34(10):1446-1451.   Published online October 31, 1991
A case of incontinentia pigmenti, Bloch-Sulzberger type, without any developmental defect has been presented with the review of related literatures. The patient was a 4 day-old female infant with irregular, grouped vesicobullous lesions on the whole body, especially on the trunk and extremities since birth. No familial traits was noted. Diagnosis was made by the charateristic clinical, labaratory and histopathologic findings.
