Practice for preterm patent ductus arteriosus; focusing on the hemodynamic significance and the impact on the neonatal outcomes
Jin A Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2019;62(7):245-251.   Published online April 8, 2019
Hemodynamically significant preterm patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) affects mortality; comorbidities such as necrotizing enterocolitis, intraventricular hemorrhage, and bronchopulmonary dysplasia; and adverse long-term neurodevelopmental outcomes in preterm infants, particularly in very low birth weight infants. However, recent studies have indicated that there is no consensus on the causal relationship between PDA and neonatal outcomes, the benefit of PDA treatment, the factors...

Mucolipidosis II (ML II) or inclusion cell disease (I-cell disease) is a rarely occurring autosomal recessive lysosomal enzyme-targeting disease. This disease is usually found to occur in individuals aged between 6 and 12 months, with a clinical phenotype resembling that of Hurler syndrome and radiological findings resembling those of dysostosis multiplex. However, we encountered a rare case of an infant...

Urinary 6-sulfatoxymelatonin level in girls and its relationship with obesity
Jieun Lee, Juyoung Yoon, Jin A Lee, Seong Yong Lee, Choong Ho Shin, Sei Won Yang
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2012;55(9):344-349.   Published online September 14, 2012
Purpose

Short sleep duration is associated with obesity. Urinary 6-sulfatoxymelatonin (6-OHMS), the principal metabolite of melatonin, is closely related with sleep. We evaluated the difference in urinary 6-OHMS levels between obese girls and normal weight girls, and the relationship of urinary 6-OHMS with other hormones regulating body weight and metabolism.

Methods

A total of 79 girls (6.3 to 12.4 years) were included in...

Hyun Ju Lee, Gyu Hong Sim, Kyung Eun Jung, Jin A Lee, Chang Won Choi, Ee Kyung Kim, Han Suk Kim, Beyong Il Kim, Jung-Hwan Choi
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2008;51(10):1065-1070.   Published online October 15, 2008
Purpose : This study aims to determine whether early closure (within 7 d) of significant patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) with indomethacin or ligation reduces neonatal morbidity when compared with delayed closure (after 7 d). Methods : Fifty-eight extremely-low-birth-weight infants admitted to the NICU of Seoul National University Hospital from April 2005 to May 2007 with PDA were studied retrospectively. Results :...
A study of serotyping of Streptococcus pneumoniae by multibead assay
Ky Young Cho, Jung Ah Lee, Sung Eun Cho, Nam Hee Kim, Jin A Lee, Ki Sook Hong, Hoan Jong Lee, Kyung Hyo Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2007;50(2):151-156.   Published online February 15, 2007
Purpose : Streptococcus pneumoniae is a major etiologic agent for pneumonia, meningitis, otitis media, and sepsis among young children. Multi-drug resistant strains have raised great concern worldwide, thus the importance of prevention with vaccines has been emphasized. However, vaccines may force the appearance of pneumococcal infections by nonvaccine serotypes. Thus, distribution of pneumococcal serotypes should be monitored to estimate vaccine...
Recent outcome of extremely low birth weight infants - The use of CRIB(clinical risk index for babies) Ⅱ score foranalyzing the survival rate -

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2006;49(9):952-958.   Published online September 15, 2006
Purpose : The survival rate of infants weighing less than 1,000 g at birth(extremely low birth weight infants, ELBWI) has increased due to recent advances in perinatal and neonatal intensive care. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the survival rates of ELBWI born at Seoul National University Hospital during the last six years. Methods : A total of...

ilus influenzae has been declined to 4% each from 23% and 14%, respectively, compared to previous study. S. agalactiae was the most common isolate in the infants ≤3 months. Among the infants and children aged 3 months to 2 years and children of 2-5 years, S. pneumoniae(57%, 52%, respectively, in each group) was the most common isolates followed by S....

Hyun Oh Jang, Jin A Lee, Nam Hee Kim, Eun Hee Chung, Hoan Jong Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2004;47(12):1300-1305.   Published online December 15, 2004
Purpose : Adenoviruses(Ads) are responsible for approximately 10 percent of lower respiratory tract infections(LRTIs) in children. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the prevalence of antibodies (Abs) against common serotypes of Ads in Korean children and adults. Methods : The sera were tested for neutralizing Abs against Ad serotypes 1 through 7 and 21 with a colorimetric microneutralization assay...
Risk Factors of Nephrocalcinosis in Very Low Birth Weight(VLBW) Infants
Gyu Hong Shim, Jin A Lee, Yun Jung Shin, Ee Kyung Kim, June Dong Park, Beyong Il Kim, Jung Hwan Choi
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2004;47(3):275-281.   Published online March 15, 2004
Purpose : Nephrocalcinosis in very low birth weight(VLBW) infants were known to be caused by a longer duration of furosemide use. However, etiologies, pathogenesis and risk factors remain unclear. Therefore, we examined the incidence and risk factors of nephrocalcinosis in VLBW infants retrospectively. Methods : Inborn babies of birth weights less than 1,500 gm were examined retrospectively. Data were reviewed on...

A Case of Congenital Methemoglobinemia Due to NADH-Methemoglobin Reductase Deficiency
Do Hyeon Kim, Jin A Lee, Sung Jae Lee, Heui Seung Jo, Yun Kyoung Lee, June Dong Park, Beyong Il Kim, Jung-Hwan Choi, Dong Soon Lee, Han Ik Cho, Kyung Ran Park
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2001;44(6):699-704.   Published online June 15, 2001
Congenital methemoglobinemia is caused by NADH-methemoglobin reductase deficiency in more than half of the total reported cases. NADH-methemoglobin reductase deficiency is an uncommon hereditary disorder producing methemoglobinemia and cyanosis in the homozygous subject. A majority of the patients born with these abnormalities have only a cosmetic defect-asymptomatic cyanosis. Congenital methemoglobinemia due to NADH-methemoglobin reductase deficiency is an autosomal recessive disorder...
