Reninoma: a rare cause of curable hypertension
Ji Hye Kim, Ji Hyun Kim, Myung Hyun Cho, Eujin Park, Hye Sun Hyun, Yo Han Ahn, Hee Gyung Kang, Kyung Chul Moon, Il-Soo Ha, Hae Il Cheong
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2019;62(4):144-147.   Published online October 29, 2018
The most common type of refractory hypertension found in children is secondary hypertension, which is a potentially curable disease. Reninoma, a renin-secreting juxtaglomerular cell tumor, is a rare cause of severe hypertension that is usually diagnosed in adolescents and young adults. Surgical resection of the tumor completely cures the hypertension of patients with reninoma. The typical clinical presentation of reninoma...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2014;57(6):264-270.   Published online June 30, 2014

Acute necrotizing encephalopathy (ANE) is a fulminant disease of the brain characterized by bilateral thalamic lesions, and is prevalent among children in East Asia. The prognosis of ANE is usually poor with a high mortality rate and neurological sequelae. This study aimed to delineate the clinical characteristics and prognostic factors of ANE.


We retrospectively analyzed clinical data of 399 pediatric patients...

Sequential magnetic resonance spectroscopic changes in a patient with nonketotic hyperglycinemia
Ji Hun Shin, So Yoon Ahn, Jeong Hee Shin, Se In Sung, Ji Mi Jung, Jin Kyu Kim, Eun Sun Kim, Hyung Doo Park, Ji Hye Kim, Yun Sil Chang, Won Soon Park
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2012;55(8):301-305.   Published online August 23, 2012

Nonketotic hyperglycinemia (NKH) is a rare inborn error of amino acid metabolism. A defect in the glycine cleavage enzyme system results in highly elevated concentrations of glycine in the plasma, urine, cerebrospinal fluid, and brain, resulting in glycine-induced encephalopathy and neuropathy. The prevalence of NKH in Korea is very low, and no reports of surviving patients are available, given the...

A family with Townes-Brocks syndrome with congenital hypothyroidism and a novel mutation of the SALL1 gene
Won Ik Choi, Ji Hye Kim, Han Wook Yoo, Sung Hee Oh
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2010;53(12):1018-1021.   Published online December 31, 2010

Townes-Brocks syndrome (TBS) is a rare autosomal dominant congenital disorder caused by mutations in the SALL1 gene. Its signs and symptoms overlap with other genetic syndromes, including VACTERL association, Pendred syndrome, Baller-Gerold syndrome, and cat eye syndrome. Structural vertebral abnormalities, hypoplasia of the thumb, and radial bone abnormalities, which are not usually associated with TBS, help in the differential diagnosis...

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is one of the most commonly encountered viral pathogens in newborn infants and is found in 0.3-2.4% of all live births. It has been demonstrated that 40-96% of seropositive mothers shed the virus via their breast milk. Breast milk containing CMV can cause almost one-third of CMV infections occurring in infants. A case of postnatal CMV infection in...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2007;50(6):549-555.   Published online June 15, 2007
Purpose : Pulse wave velocity (PWV) and ankle brachial index (ABI) are simple, non-invasive methods to assess arterial stiffness. These parameters are also known to be closely related to cardiovascular risk factors and diseases. The purposes of this study were to measure blood pressure, PWV, ABI in healthy Korean adolescents, set up their normal values and assess their correlations. Methods...

Neurofibromatosis type 1(NF1) is one of the most common inherited disorders, clinically characterized by caf -au-lait spots, Lisch nodules and neurofibromas. In addition, the affected individuals usually develop benign and malignant tumors of the nervous system. One of the most common tumors is the optic nerve glioma. NF1-associated glioma, however, rarely occurs in the cerebellum. Recently, we experienced a NF1-associated...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1998;41(4):538-542.   Published online April 15, 1998
In hydranencephaly, the cerebral hemispheres are absent or represented by membranous sacs with remnants of frontal, temporal or occipital cortex dispersed over the membrane. The brain stem is relatively intact. The cause of hydranencephaly is unknown, but bilateral occlusion of the internal carotid arteries during early fetal development can explain most of the pathologic abnormalities. We evaluated a case of hydranencephaly by magnetic resonance(MR)...
