Soon Jeong Moon, Young Min An, Soon Ki Kim, Young Se Kwon, Ji Eun Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2017;60(12):403-407.   Published online December 22, 2017
Purpose

Quadriplegic children with cerebral palsy are more susceptible to osteoporosis because of various risk factors that interfere with bone metabolism. Pamidronate is effective for pediatric osteoporosis, but there are no guidelines for optimal dosage or duration of treatment in quadriplegic children with osteoporosis. We aimed to evaluate the efficacy of low-dose pamidronate treatment in these patients.

Methods

Ten quadriplegic patients on antiepileptic...

Case Report
Development of multifocal nodular lesions of a liver mimicking hepatic metastasis, following resection of an insulinoma in a child
Sook Young Jung, Ben Kang, Yoon Mee Choi, Jun Mee Kim, Soon Ki Kim, Young Se Kwon, Ji Eun Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2015;58(2):69-72.   Published online February 28, 2015

Insulinoma, which arises from insulin-producing pancreatic beta cells, is a rare tumor in children. Only 5%-10% of insulinomas are malignant and undergo metastasis. We report a case of an 11-year-old girl who experienced hypoglycemia-related seizures induced by an insulinoma; after resection of the primary tumor, she developed hepatic focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH). Laboratory test results indicated marked hypoglycemia with hyperinsulinemia....

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2010;53(5):653-656.   Published online May 31, 2010

Listeria monocytogenes is a facultative anaerobic, gram-positive bacillus that is isolated from the soil, vegetables, and wild or domestic animals. Listeria occurs predominantly in the elderly, immunocompromised patients, pregnant women and newborns. Infections by this microorganism are rare in healthy infants and children. L. monocytogenes may cause meningitis, meningoencephalitis, brain abscess, pyogenic arthritis, osteomyelitis, and liver abscesses in children. The...

A case of acquired acrodermatitis enteropathica with a normal serum zinc level but a low level in the hair
Kyung Il Oh, Jung Hee Kim, Ji Eun Lee, Dae Hyun Lim, Byong Kwan Son
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2007;50(2):209-212.   Published online February 15, 2007
Acrodermatitis enteropathica (AE) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder of early infancy, and is characterized by periorificial dermatitis, alopecia, and intractable diarrhea. Serum zinc levels are usually low in untreated patients and the oral administration of zinc sulfate can clear skin lesions and other symptoms. Although premature and cow`s milk-fed infants are at particular risk of developing AE, there have...

Severe hypernatremic dehydration in a breast-fed neonate
Yun Jung Oh, Ji Eun Lee, So Hyun An, Yang Kyong Kim, Sung Kil Kang, Ja Kyoung Kim, Byong Kwan Son, Yong Hoon Jun
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2007;50(1):85-88.   Published online January 15, 2007
Although it is a rare condition, breast-feeding may result in hypernatremic dehydration. However, incidences might be increasing with more mothers breast-feeding. Although the early detection and management of hypernatremic dehydration from breast-feeding is important, its prevention is even more important on account of its serious complications. In order to prevent hypernatremic dehydration secondary to breast-feeding, it is essential to educate...

A Case of Dieulafoy's Lesion Presenting Upper Gastrointestinal Bleeding in a Child in the Acute Phase of Kawasaki Disease
Seung Min Lee, Seok Woo Park, Yun Hee Kim, Ji Eun Lee, Young Jin Hong, Byong Kwan Son
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2004;47(10):1124-1127.   Published online October 15, 2004
Dieulafoy's lesion is an unusual cause of massive gastrointestinal bleeding resulting from the erosion of an abnormally large submucosal artery. Recently, improvement of endoscopic techniques has made effective hemostasis possible in most cases of Dieulafoy's lesion. Aspirin, which is an anti-inflammatory agent, increases the incidence of major upper gastrointestinal complications. Gastroduodenal mucosal injury associated with aspirin therapy in patients in...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2002;45(9):1126-1133.   Published online September 15, 2002
Purpose : Prader-Willi syndrome(PWS) is a complex disorder affecting multisystems with characteristic clinical features. Its genetic basis is an expression defect in the paternally derived chromosome 15q11-q13. We analyzed the clinical features and genetic basis of PWS patients for early detection and treatment. Methods : We retrospectively studied 24 patients with PWS in Department of Pediatrics, Samsung Medical Center, from...

Ji Eun Lee, Jeong Hee Kim, Dae Hyun Lim, Sei Woo Chung, Byong Kwan Son
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1998;41(7):966-973.   Published online July 15, 1998
Purpose : There are many methods to interpret the skin prick test which has been commonly used to find out the causative allergen in allergic disease. Among them two are most frequently used. One is to measure the absolute size of wheal which is caused by the allergen and the other is to compare the size of wheal for allergen...

Expression of Tumor Suppression Gene in Childhood Cancer
Ji Eun Lee, Myung Ik Lee, Chang Soo Park
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1998;41(3):383-389.   Published online March 15, 1998
Purpose : Childhood cancer is closely related to the mutation of tumor suppressor gene. The mutant gene may evoke congenital anomaly and development of cancer. The common solid tumors in childhood are Wilms' tumor, retinoblastoma and neuroblastoma. The cytogenetic study has been performed. The cytogentic study revealed structural abnormality of chromosome in Wilms' tumor and retinoblastoma. The oncogene and mutation...

Airway Resistance after Exercise Loading Test in Asthmatic Children
Ji Eun Lee, Young Mi Hong, Kyung Hee Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1994;37(10):1333-1339.   Published online October 15, 1994
Exercise induced asthma(EIA) is defined as acute, reversible, usually self-immiting airway obstruction which develop after strenous exercise in patients with asthma. EIA is a bigger problem in children than adults due to more active and smaller airways which obstruct more easily when bronchospasm develops. The exercise elicited amny change in pulmonary function of asthmatic children. These change could be measured...

Pseudohypoaldosteronism type 1 is a genetic renal tubular disease of salt wasting, presenting in young infants. Tubular unresponsiveness to elevated endogenous an exogenou aldosterone is the suggested pathogenetic mechanism. Oral sodium chloride supplementation relieve the clinical symptoms and electrolyte distrubances. We experienced 2 cases of PHA type 1 in 38-day and 450day old male infants who were presented with failure to...
