Byung Ok Kwak, Min Jung Lee, Hye Won Park, Min Kyung Song, Sochung Chung, Kyo Sun Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2014;57(12):538-541.   Published online December 31, 2014

Varicella is usually considered to be a benign disease in healthy children; however, serious complications can occur such as necrotizing fasciitis and toxic shock syndrome. We describe a 38-month-old girl with necrotizing fasciitis and streptococcal toxic shock syndrome following varicella. She was previously healthy and vaccinated against varicella at 12 months of age. She had been diagnosed with varicella three...

Kidney size estimation in Korean children with Technesium-99m dimercaptosuccinic acid scintigraphy
Min Jung Lee, Mi Kyung Son, Byung Ok Kwak, Hye Won Park, Sochung Chung, Kyo Sun Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2014;57(1):41-45.   Published online January 31, 2014
Purpose

Renal size is an important indicator to determine adequate organ growth in children. The aim of this study was to estimate renal size with Technesium-99m dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) scan and propose a simple formula for predicting renal length in normal Korean children.

Methods

This study included 346 children (148 boys and 198 girls; age range, 1 month to 17 years) in whom...

Evaluation of kidney size in children: a pilot study of renal length as a surrogate of organ growth
Boo Won Kim, Min Kyoung Song, Sochung Chung, Kyo Sun Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2012;55(2):54-57.   Published online February 14, 2012
Purpose

Somatic growth is an important indicator of health in children. Adequate organ growth is essential in growth and directly related to body growth. We consider renal length as a surrogate of organ growth in growing children. Measurement of weight, height, and many anthropometric indices, such as body surface area (BSA), body mass index (BMI), and Rohrer and Kaup indices, are...

Microalbuminuria in children with urinary tract infection
Byung Ok Kwak, Sochung Chung, Kyo Sun Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2010;53(9):840-844.   Published online September 13, 2010
Purpose

Microalbuminuria is defined as increased urinary albumin excretion (30-300 mg/day) or microalbumin/creatinine ratio (30-300 mg/g) in a spot urine sample. Although microalbuminuria is a predictor of clinical nephropathy and cardiomyopathy, few studies have investigated microalbuminuria in children with urinary tract infection (UTI).

Methods

Therefore, we compared the spot urine microalbumin/creatinine ratio in pediatric UTI patients with that of control subjects. We investigated...

The relationships between clinical variables and renal parenchymal disease in pediatric clinically suspected urinary tract infection
Jung Lim Byun, Sang Taek Lee, Sochung Chung, Kyo Sun Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2010;53(2):222-227.   Published online February 15, 2010
Purpose : To evaluate the significance of clinical signs and laboratory findings as predictors of renal parenchymal lesions and vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) in childhood urinary tract infection (UTI). Methods : From July 2005 to July 2008, 180 patients admitted with a first febrile UTI at the Pediatric Department of Konkuk University Hospital were included in this study. The following were...

A case of Plasmodium vivax malaria occurring during a school excursion to Pocheon-gun
Byung Ok Kwak, Sochung Chung, Kyo Sun Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2010;53(1):85-88.   Published online January 15, 2010
Malaria caused by Plasmodium species is characterized by paroxysms of fever, chills, fatigue, anemia, and splenomegaly. Vivax malaria has lately re-emerged as an infectious disease and has exhibited high transmission rate in northern Gyeonggi-do province. We encountered a case of malaria in a child presenting with fever and thrombocytopenia who had recently made a school excursion to Pocheon-gun, Gyeonggi-do. The...
Two cases of spinal muscular atrophy type 1 with extensive involvement of sensory nerves
Ran Lee, Sochung Chung, Sung-Eun Koh, In Kyu Lee, Jongmin Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2008;51(12):1350-1354.   Published online December 15, 2008
Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is an autosomal recessive disease characterized by diffuse proximal and distal weakness due to deletion of the survival motor neuron (SMN) gene localized on chromosome 5 (5q11.2-13.3). SMA has been considered as a pure lower motor neuron disorder, and a definitive diagnosis can be established by molecular genetic testing. Here, we describe two patients with severe...

Sang Taek Lee, Sochung Chung, Yong Mean Park, Sun Hwan Bae, Jeong Jin Yu, Ran Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2008;51(8):856-860.   Published online August 15, 2008
Purpose : This study aimed to examine the factors influencing the appearance of headache and backache following diagnostic lumbar puncture in children, focusing on the need for strict bed rest after lumbar puncture. Methods : We studied 70 two-fifteen-year-old pediatric patients who underwent diagnostic lumbar puncture from July 2005 to July 2007 at Konkuk University Hospital. We divided them into...
Coronary artery diameter of normal children aged 3 months to 6 years
Jeong Jin Yu, Suk Kyung Cho, Yong-Mean Park, Ran Lee, Sochung Chung, Sun Hwan Bae
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2008;51(6):629-633.   Published online June 15, 2008
Purpose : This study was designed to investigate normal domestic values for the diameter of the left main coronary artery (LCA), the left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD) and the right coronary artery (RCA). These data are necessary to define dilatation of coronary arteries in Kawasaki disease cases. Methods : Study subjects were 43 normal healthy children whose ages ranged from...
Carotid Intima-Media Thickness Measurement in Obese Children
Kyung Ok Park, Suk Ju Choi, Hee Hyun Yeom, Sochung Chung, Jeong Jin Yu, Youngshin Park, Dong Hwan Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2005;48(9):935-938.   Published online September 15, 2005
Purpose : The aim of the present study was to ascertain whether the increase of carotid intima- media thickeness(cIMT) as one of premature pathologic changes of atherosclerosis, was present in obese children compared to normal weight children. Methods : The obese group consisted of 21 obese/overweight(body mass index(BMI) above 85 percentile of age, sex standards) children and the control group of...
