Survey of Harada Scoring of Occurrence of Coronary Aneurysm in Kawasaki Disease Compared to Current Criteria
Chang Kyu Nam, Yong Wook Kim, Ki Bok Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1999;42(7):928-935.   Published online July 15, 1999
Purpose : Gamma-globulin is effective in preventing coronary aneurysm, the primary complication of Kawasaki disease(KD). However, in order to predict high-risk cases which absolutely require γ-globulin, because of its high expenses, Harada score(HS) was introduced in Japan in 1990. We attempted to compare HS scoring with the health insurance criteria currently used in Korea. Methods : Retrospective studies were performed on...

A Case of Hinman Syndrome Successfully Treated by Non-Surgical Measures
Won Seoung Lee, Chang Weon Oh, Ki Bok Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1999;42(5):722-727.   Published online May 15, 1999
Hinman syndrome is a condition caused by an incoordination between the detrusor and external urethral sphincter during bladder contraction. Manifestations include day-and-night wetting, residual urine, infected urine, vesicoureteral reflux, christmas-tree shaped bladder-wall change, and upper tract damage without neurologic lesion or anatomical obstruction. Recently, this incoordination was postulated to be due to over-compensation of the external sphincter which compensates the...
A Case of Cavernous Sinus Thrombosis due to a Mistreated Facial Furuncle
Chae Yun Cho, Kyoung Sim Kim, Ki Bok Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1999;42(4):584-588.   Published online April 15, 1999
Infections of the face, especially of the medial third or “the danger triangle”, are the most frequent primary foci associated with thrombosis of cavernous sinus. Microorganisms entering the facial vein and pterygoid plexus from these sites are easily carried to the sinus through the ophthalmic vein. When the septic thrombosis involves various structures in the sinus, multiple clinical manifestations develop...

A Nationwide Clinical Study of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome in Children
Soo Jung Choi, Do Suck Jeong, Jae Won Oh, Ha Baik Lee, Im Ju Kang, Kwang Woo Kim, Kyu Earn Kim, Ki Bok Kim, Young Ho Rah, Kang Seo Park, Byong Kwan Son, Ki Young Lee, Sang Il Lee, Ji Tai Choung, Young Mi Hong
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1999;42(1):23-31.   Published online January 15, 1999
Purpose : Acute respiratory distress syndrome(ARDS) is the final course of acute lung injury. It results from various etiological origins and pathophysiologic mechanisms, and has a mortality rate of approximately 60-70%. Although the confirmative incidence of ARDS in children is yet unknown, the increasing incidence of ARDS has been reported in Korea. In the present study, we report ARDS diagnosed...

Two Cases of Double-Orifice Mitral Valve Detected by Echocardiography
Kwan Cheol Oh, Yong Wook Kim, Ki Bok Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1998;41(6):825-830.   Published online June 15, 1998
Double-orifice mitral valve is a rare congenital anomaly. Most cases of double-orifice mitral valve are hemodynamically normal and remain symptomless, so that it is usually discovered incidentally in autopsy or during surgical correction of a cardiovascular abnormality. Recently, however, it is increasingly recognized as such, since the echocardiography has gained wide acceptance as a non-invasive diagnostic tool by the M-mode, two-dimensional and color Doppler echocardiogram....

Prognosis of Bacterial Meningitis based on Cerebrospinal Fluid Culture
Yun Ju Lee, Won Sung Lee, Kyoung Sim Kim, Ki Bok Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1998;41(5):614-621.   Published online May 15, 1998
Purpose : The present study was undertaken to assess whether the results of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) culture are related to prognosis. Methods : Subjected to this study were 51 cases admitted to our department who had been diagnosed as bacterial meningitis. They were divided into two groups, Group Ⅰ(20) with positive CSF culture and Group Ⅱ(31) with negative outcome, then both...

A Case of Berry Syndrome associated with Syndactyly
Sang Chun Jung, Kyoung Sim Kim, Yong Wook Kim, Ki Bok Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1998;41(4):543-547.   Published online April 15, 1998
Berry syndrome is a rare association of congenital heart anomalies which consists of a distal aortopulmonary window with aortic origin of the right pulmonary artery and hypoplasia or interruption of the aortic arch. This defect can be corrected only by immediate surgical intervention, so accurate preoperative diagnosis and detailed anatomic depiction of this syndrome are important in prognosis. We experienced a case of Berry...

The Pelvic Changes of Patients with Down Syndrome in Korea
Jong Park, Kwan Cheol Oh, Kyoung Sim Kim, Ki Bok Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1997;40(2):159-166.   Published online February 15, 1997
Purpose : Since Caffey et al. first described the anomaly in pelvis among the Down patients, decreased iliac and pelvic indexes have been helpful in diagnosing the syndrome. For Korean cases, however, no definitive data are available as yet, prompting us to evaluate the pelvic changes in Korean Down's patients. Methods : Subjected to this study were 68 children with Down's syndrome. As...
Trend of Tuberculous Meningitis since 1970
Jeong A Park, Chang Weon Oh, Kyoung Sim Kim, Yong Wook Kim, Ki Bok Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1996;39(11):1527-1537.   Published online November 15, 1996
Purpose : The incidence of tuberculous meningitis has reportedly decreased from 4.2% in 1970 to 1.8% in 1990 in Korea; however, tuberculous meningitis, which spreads hematogenously, claiming majority of mortality in childhood tuberculosis, still poses serious problems. This study was performed to evaluate the recent trend of tuberculous meningitis. Methods : We compared with three groups of tuberculous meningitis, two were our previous reports on...
Changes in MaternalAge and the Incidence of Down Syndrome
Chang Weon Oh, Sung Su Lim, Ki Bok Kim, Won Jin Kee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1996;39(11):1512-1519.   Published online November 15, 1996
Purpose : The incidence of Down syndrome, the most common chromosoaml anomaly, increases with the advanced maternal age. Recently, however, the incidence of Down symdrome was reported to have decreased with wide acceptance of prenatal diagnosis and planned parenthood, prompting us to re-evaluate the incidence of Down syndrome in relation to changes in maternal age. Methods : Subjected to study were 296 Down cases: 26...

Kyoung Hee Choi, Sung Soo Rim, Byung Min Moon, Ki Bok Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1996;39(3):338-345.   Published online March 15, 1996
Purpose : The platelet number alone does not give a complete picture of platelet maturity and function, therefore, the platelet indices have been the subject of intensive study in recent years, but they have not been firmly established in the neonates. Methods : Blood samples collected in K2 EDTA bottle from femoral vein of 176 neonates (54 healthy fullterm, 96...

Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita is a rare congenital disorder characterized by multiple fixed-joint deformities of the upper and lower extremities. Most cases are sporadic, although rare cases of familial recurrence are reported worldwide. Recently, we experienced 2 cases of arthrogryposis multiplex congenita in a family (a brother and a sister). They were born with micrognathia, low set ears, broad and short...
