Me Gyoung Lee, Young-Nae Roh, Young-Hoon Kim, Chung Sun Baek, Me Gyoung Sin, Jin Lee, Pil-Sang Jang, Jin-Tack Kim, Kweon-Haeng Lee, Kyung-Tai Whang
Accepted January 1, 1970  
Trisomy 9p syndrome was first described by Rethore, et al in 1970 and about 150 cases have been reported. Trisomy 9p has been reported as either partial or complete. The term "duplication 9p syndrome" instead of "trisomy 9p syndrome" is used since most of the reported patients had only partial duplication rather than the whole arm duplication of 9p. Duplication...

Hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy type III, which is also known as Dejerine-Sottas disease, is a severe demyelinating polyneuropathy which presents from birth or infancy, and is sometimes presented as a hypotonic or floppy infant. The disease is inherited autosomal recessively and includes clinical findings of generalized muscle weakness and atrophy, with the greatest severity in distal limb muscles, areflexia, and sensory loss.

Sung-Wook Park, Kyung-Yil Lee, Kyung-Yil Lee, Kye-Nam Yoon, Sang-Won Cha, Dong-Jun Lee, Ji-Whan Han, Kyung-Tai Whang
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2000;43(5):720-724.   Published online May 15, 2000
Intravenous immunoglobulin(IVIG) therapy is associated with a number of complications, including rare acute renal failure(ARF). Although the cause of IVIG-associated ARF is unknown, it may be related to the stabilizing agent used in IVIG preparations. ARF following IVIG infusion has not been previously described in children. We report a 4-year-old girl with Kawasaki disease who suffered from ARF following IVIG...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2000;43(1):70-77.   Published online January 15, 2000
Purpose : Without a specific diagnostic method, the clinical diagnostic criteria for atypical Kawasaki disease is known as the presence of coronary artery changes in a patient who did not meet the already estabilished clinical criteria. With this criteria, we are put into dilemma because atypical Kawasaki disease should exhibit coronary artery disease. So, we demonstrated the rate of coronary artery involvement in atypical...

Jin Lee, Young-Yoo Kim, Youn-Soo Lee, Jong-Chul Shin, Jong-Wan Kim, Chung-Sik Chun, Kyung-Tai Whang
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1999;42(11):1604-1609.   Published online November 15, 1999
We experienced a case of persistent left superior vena cava draining into the common atrium in a fetus of 26-year-old primigravida. Persistent left superior vena cava is derived from the left cardinal vein. This anomalous vessel usually drains into the right atrium via the coronary sinus and has no physiologic significance. Much less frequently, the left superior vena cava drains...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1999;42(8):1165-1169.   Published online August 15, 1999
Mycoplasma pneumoniae is the most common etiologic agent of pneumonia in school-aged children and young adults. It involves not only the respiratory system but includes extrapulmonary complications such as exanthem, hemolysis, arthritis, hepatic dysfuction, cardiac disease, and central nervous system disease. The pathogenesis of extrapulmonary involvements may be an autoimmune phenomena. Recent studies suggest that bronchial asthma can be initiated...
