The aim of the present study was to investigate the differences in lower airway inflammatory immune responses, including cellular responses and responses in terms of inflammatory mediators in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) and the airway, to rhinovirus (RV) infection on asthma exacerbation by comparing a control and a murine asthma model, with or without RV infection.

A case of hemolytic uremic syndrome preceded by intussusception
Eun Young Ko, Joo Young Kim, Hye Jin Lee, Hyun Seung Lee, Ji Whan Han, Young Hoon Kim, Jin Tack Kim, Hae Il Cheong, Pil Sang Jang
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2011;54(4):176-178.   Published online April 30, 2011

Hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS) is the most common cause of acute renal failure in young children. It is classically characterized by the triad of microangiopathic hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia, and uremia. Further, not only is intussusception one of the differential diagnoses of HUS but it may also become a complication during disease progression. We report a case of HUS preceded by intussusception...

Therapeutic comparison between low-dose sustained-release theophylline dry syrup and capsule in children with mild persistent asthma
Hyun Seung Lee, Hae Kyung Lee, Hi Jeong Kwon, Jeong Hee Kim, Yeong Ho Rha, Jin Tack Kim, Young Ho Kim, Hae Rhan Lee, Bok Yang Pyun
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2007;50(3):284-291.   Published online March 15, 2007
Purpose : Theophylline has recently been reported to have concurrent anti-inflammatory effects at low therapeutic plasma concentrations which are below the doses at which significants, clinically useful bronchodilatation is evident. Sustained-release formulation in capsule and dry syrup forms were developed to reduce its adverse effects and improve its clinical effects. We compared the therapeutic effects of theophylline dry syrup and...
The effects of high-dose intravenous immunoglobulin on plasma protein and lipid levels in the patients with Kawasaki disease
Keun Young Lee, Dong-Un Kim, Hyun Seung Lee, Pil Sang Jang, Young-Hoon Kim, Jin Tack Kim, Hyun Hee Kim, Kyung-Yil Lee, Joon-Sung Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2006;49(12):1348-1353.   Published online December 15, 2006
Purpose : The reticuloendothelial system is composed of sinusoidal capillaries, through which even large protein molecules are freely movable between plasma and interstitial space, including the lymphatic system. Therefore, high-dose intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) would cause a redistribution of proteins between two compartments. To investigate this hypothesis, we measured plasma protein and lipid levels in patients with Kawasaki disease before and...

A Case of Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis in a Child with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus
Ja Young Hwang, Suk Man No, Jin Lee, Pil Sang Jang, Young Hoon Kim, Jin Tack Kim, Joon Sung Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2003;46(10):1029-1031.   Published online October 15, 2003
Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis is a reactive disorder characterized by a generalized non-malignant histiocytic proliferation with prominent hemophagocytosis by stimulated histiocytes in the bone marrow and reticuloendothelial systems resulting in pancytopenia and liver dysfunction. Several diseases including infection, malignancy and autoimmune disease are known to be causative disorders. This case demonstrated histiocytic hemophagocytosis in the bone marrow, resulting in pancytopenia during treatment...

A Case of Idiopathic Chylothorax Treated with Pleuroperitoneal Shunt
Sung Ho Jung, Dong Un Kim, Yoon Kyung Lee, Byung Joon Choi, Jin Tack Kim, Ik Jun Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1999;42(5):733-737.   Published online May 15, 1999
Chylothorax is an accumulation of lymphatic fluid or chyle in the pleurual cavity resulting from a leak of the thoracic duct or one of its major divisions. If the loss of chyle persist, life threatening nutritional and immunologic deficiencies ensue. Initial conservative managements consist of tube thoracostomy drainage and dietary modification(low fat diet and total parenteral nutrition). In some refarctory...
A Case of Type IV-4 Renal Tubular Acidosis
Young A Jo, Dong Un Kim, Yoon Kyung Lee, Byung Jun Choi, Jin Tack Kim, Ik Jun Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1997;40(11):1603-1607.   Published online November 15, 1997
Type IV renal tubular acidosis(RTA) is due to renal tubular bicarbonate wasting associated with mineralocorticoid deficiency. In its five subtypes, IV-4 is due to pseudohypoaldosteronism(PHA) evidenced by increased plasma renin and aldosterone. PHA is believed to result from distal tubular unresponsiveness to circulating aldosterone and has normal renal and adrenal fuction. Hypoaldosteronism can easily be suspected when the patient shows typical electrolyte imbalance (hyponatremia coupled with...
A Case of Idiopathic Hypereosinophilic Syndrome
Bin Cho, Jin Tack Kim, Joon Sung Lee, Kyoo Hong Cho
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1994;37(7):1020-1027.   Published online July 15, 1994
The idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome(HES) represents a heterogenous group of disorder characterized by prolonged eosinophilia of undetectable cause and multiorgan system dysfunction. Bone marrow is the most frequentry involved organ, but the most severe clinicopathologic involvement is heart. The major cause of death in patients with the HES is cardiac dysfunction especially congestive heart failure resulted from endocardial fibrosis and restrictive cardiomyopathy. We...
A Case of Disseminated Tuberculosis woth Tuberculosis Otitis Media
Soo Bong Lee, Jin Tack Kim, Joon Sung Lee, Kyung Su Lee, Whang Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1994;37(1):135-140.   Published online January 15, 1994
Tuberculous otitis media is the second most frequent ENT disease of tuberculous origin. Most cases occur secondarily, when organisms are coughed into the nasopharynx from pulmonary lesions, or as the result of hematogenous spread. The clinical findings are profuse otorrhea, absence of pain, profound hearing loss, perforation of tympanic menbrane and paralysis of facial nerve. We have experienced one case...

Eosinophil Cationic Protein in Relation to Bronchial Hyperresponsiveness in Asthmatic Children
Jin Tack Kim, Joon Sung Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1993;36(12):1707-1715.   Published online December 15, 1993
The eosinophil is the major cell responsible for the inflammatory reaction in bronchial asthma. Secretion of granular components is probably of considerable importance for the inflammatory effects of the eosinophils, Eosinophil cationic protein (ECP) is the one of the secretory components of the eosinophil granule and is considered as an activation marker of eosinophil, Blood eosinophil count, serum concentration of...
