Recombinant Human Erythropoietin Therapy for a Jehovah's Witness Child With Severe Anemia due to Hemolytic-Uremic Syndrome
Da Eun Woo, Jae Min Lee, Yu Kyung Kim, Yong Hoon Park
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2016;59(2):100-103.   Published online February 29, 2016

Patients with hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS) can rapidly develop profound anemia as the disease progresses, as a consequence of red blood cell (RBC) hemolysis and inadequate erythropoietin synthesis. Therefore, RBC transfusion should be considered in HUS patients with severe anemia to avoid cardiac or pulmonary complications. Most patients who are Jehovah's Witnesses refuse blood transfusion, even in the face of life-threatening...

Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease mimicking malignant lymphoma with 2-[18F]fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose PET/CT in children
Ji Eun Kim, Eun Kyung Lee, Jae Min Lee, Soon Hwan Bae, Kwang Hae Choi, Young Hwan Lee, Jeong Ok Hah, Joon Hyuk Choi, Eun Jung Kong, Ihn Ho Cho
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2014;57(5):226-231.   Published online May 31, 2014
Purpose

Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease (KFD) is a benign disease, which is characterized by a cervical lymphadenopathy with fever, and it often mimics malignant lymphoma (ML). 2-[18F]fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (18F-FDG PET/CT) is a powerful imaging modality for the diagnosis, staging and monitoring of ML, with the limitations including the nonspecific FDG uptake in infectious or inflammatory processes. This study compared clinical...

Natural history and consequences of the novel 2009 influenza A H1N1 (2009 H1N1) infection in immunocompromised pediatric patients are not yet fully understood. In this study, we investigated the clinical features and outcomes of the 2009 H1N1 infection in pediatric patients with hematological and oncological diseases.

Methods

We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 528 patients who had hematological and oncological diseases...

Sae Yoon Kim, Jae Min Lee, Yong Hoom Park
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2010;53(3):437-441.   Published online March 15, 2010
Toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) and Stevens–Johnson syndrome (SJS) are rare, life-threatening mucocutaneous diseases, usually attributable to drugs and infections. Corticosteroids have been used in the management of TEN for the last 30 years. This remains controversial and is still much debated. TEN can occur despite administration of high doses of systemic corticosteroids. The psychiatric side effects of corticosteroids can include...

Plasma B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP): a useful marker for anthracycline-induced cardiotoxicity in Korean children with cancer
Hyun Dong Lee, Jae Min Lee, Yong Jik Lee, Young Hwan Lee, Jeong Ok Hah
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2007;50(8):774-780.   Published online August 15, 2007
Purpose : The anthracyclines (AC) are widely used chemotherapeutic agents for pediatric cancers. However, the therapeutic use of these agents is limited by their cardiotoxicity. The aim of the present study was to investigate the usefulness of plasma B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels as a marker for AC-induced cardiotoxicity compared to echocardiography in Korean children with cancer. Methods : Fifty-five pediatric...
