Small for gestational age (SGA) is confusingly defined as birth weight (BW) either below 3rd percentile or 10th percentile for infants. This study aimed to compare postnatal catch-up growth between SGA groups according to different definitions.

Methods

Data of 129 infants born with BW below the 10th percentile and admitted to Korea University Anam Hospital and Ansan Hospital were retrospectively reviewed. Height...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2011;54(5):201-206.   Published online May 31, 2011
Purpose

Westernized eating habits have been associated with early-age menstruation, which increases the incidence of dysmenorrhea and premenstrual syndrome among adolescent girls. We therefore surveyed changes in menarche timing and the general menstrual characteristics of adolescent girls in Seoul, Korea.

Methods

We surveyed 538 teenage girls who visited our hospital between July and November 2007. Items explored included age at menarche, general menstrual...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2009;52(4):422-428.   Published online April 15, 2009
Purpose : Adolescence is a period of growth and development in body structure and physiologic, psychologic, and social functioning. Smoking and drinking in this period are very harmful and may lead to other forms of substance abuse. We surveyed the actual aspects of smoking and drinking among Korean adolescents and analyzed associated factors. Methods : A survey was performed among adolescents...
Comparison of predicted adult heights measured by Bayley-Pinneau and Tanner-Whitehouse 3 methods in normal children, those with precocious puberty and with constitutional growth delay
Yeon Joung Oh, Byung Keun Yu, Jung Yeon Shin, Kee-Hyoung Lee, Kwang Chul Lee, Chang Sung Son
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2009;52(3):351-355.   Published online March 15, 2009
Purpose : This study compared bone ages measured by the Greulich-Pyle (GP) and Tanner-Whitehouse 3 (TW3) methods and investigated the differences in predicted adult heights measured by Bayley-Pinneau (BP) and TW3 methods. Methods : Bone ages were assessed from left-wrist radiographs by two investigators, one for each GP and TW3 methods in 85 normal children, 30 precocious puberty girls, and...

Yoon Lee, Hye-Kyoung Shin, Byung-Min Choi, Baik-Lin Eun, Sang-Hee Park, Kee-Hyoung Lee, Chol Shin
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2008;51(2):134-144.   Published online February 15, 2008
Purpose : This study aimed to investigate body shape perception, weight control behaviors and eating habits of adolescent girls in urban, suburban and rural areas of Korea to obtain basis for establishing adequate weight control program for adolescent. Methods : From May 2002 to November 2002, a cross-sectional questionnaire survey and physical examination were conducted to examine body shape perception, weight...
Carotid artery intima media thickness in obese children : relation with cardiovascular risk factors
Jin Lee, Hyo Jin Kwon, Moon Ho Park, Ki Young Jang, Kee-Hyoung Lee, Kwang Chul Lee, Chang Sung Son, Joo Won Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2007;50(11):1091-1096.   Published online November 15, 2007
Purpose : The of common carotid artery intima media thickness (IMT) is an acknowledged noninvasive marker for early atherosclerotic changes. We investigate whether common carotid IMT is different between obese and normal-weight children and also evaluate the relationships IMT with cardiovascular risk factors. Methods : We collected the clinical data (age, sex, pubertal stage, body mass index) and measured blood...
Alteration of insulin resistance and serum adiponectin levels after one year follow-up of obese children and adolescents
Min Jee Jeoung, Jung Yeon Shin, Soo Young Kim, Jung Hwa Lee, Kee-Hyoung Lee, Joo Won Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2007;50(8):767-773.   Published online August 15, 2007
Purpose : Obesity has become a pandemic and especially the prevalence of childhood obesity has increased remarkably over the past years. Childhood obesity is often accompanied by the expected morbidities such as hyperlipidemia, fatty liver and glucose intolerance. We evaluated the pattern of alteration in the body mass index (BMI), serum adiponectin concentration, insulin resistance (HOMA-IR), and complication rates after...
Serum Adiponectin Levels and Insulin Resistance in Obese Children
Hee-Sun Lee, Jin Lee, Min-Joo Kang, Byung-Min Choi, Kee-Hyoung Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2005;48(5):481-487.   Published online May 15, 2005
Purpose : Adiponectin, adipose tissue-specific protein, has anti-inflammatory and anti-atherogenic properties. It has been found to have a negative correlation with obesity and to play a role in modulating glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity. Serum adiponectin concentrations are decreased in adults with obesity and type 2 diabetes. We investigated the difference in adiponectin levels between obese and non-obese children, and...
