Kawasaki disease (KD) is an acute, self-limited vasculitis of unknown etiology that occurs predominantly in infants and young children. Initially described in 1967 by Dr. Tomisaku Kawasaki, it is now the most common cause of acquired heart disease among children in developed nations. Although KD has been reported across all racial and ethnic groups, the incidence of KD is more...

A primary cardiac arrest is rare in children. The usual course begins with respiratory arrest and culminates in profound bradycardia or asystole and cardiovascular collapse, so it is vitally important to quickly restore ventilation in pediatric patients(phone-fast). Children over 8 years of age follow the same sequence as adults; that is calling emergency medical services before providing rescue breathing(phone-first).

The interstitial lung diseases(ILD) comprises a large, heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by derangement of alveolar walls and alveolar capillary unit causing restrictive pulmonary dysfunction and disordered gas exchange. It is rare, especially in children, and the opinions on investigation and treatments are controversial. The classification of adult ILD is applied to that of children. But considering occurrence during the developing state of lung...

Ramsay Hunt Syndrome was initially described by Ramsay Hunt in 1907 as herpes zoster of the geniculate ganglion. The frequency of RHS in patients with herpes zoster has been calculated to be about 1%. RHS affects mostly adults; however a small number of children with herpes zoster oticus have been reported. We describe a case of RHS in a healthy...

We examined a male infant with transient increase in alkaline phosphatase(ALP) activity. The 25-month-old infant was admitted to a local hospital because of pneumonia of unknown etiology. Initial laboratory investigation revealed a serum ALP of 11,260U/L, which was comparable to that of bone isoenzyme on the electrophoresis pattern. There was no evidence of hepatitis, skeletal or intestinal diseases. The hyperphosphatasemia...

Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease(PMD) is a rare sudanophilic leukodystrophy with a reduced number of mature oligodendrocytes as well as diffuse central nervous system hypomyelination(dysmyelination) due to abnormal synthesis of proteolipid protein. PMD is characterized with pendular nystagmus, stridor, delay in psychomotor development, hypotonia, ataxia, athetosis and extrapyramidal signs. Abnormal high signal intensity is shown in the entire white matter of cerebrum and...

It has been estimated that chromosomal aberrations account for 2.3% to 3% of normal pregnancies and of them 85% are aborted. Therefore, the survival rate of neonates with chromosomal aberrations are very low. Patients with partial deletion of the long arm of chromosome 10 are rare. We experienced a case of partial monosomy 10 in a 14-years-old girl. She showed...

Neonatal genital prolapse is very rare and is usually associated with meningomyelocele or other anomalies of the central nervous system. Synonyms of genital prolapse are sacropubic hernia, pelvic relaxation, and pelvic organ prolapse. There are two types of genital prolapse including vaginal prolapse and uterovaginal prolapse. We experienced a case of uterovaginal prolapse in a 30 day-old premature infant, which...

Anomalous origin of the pulmonary artery from the ascending aorta is a rare congenital cardiovascular anomaly which usually involves the right pulmonary artery. Because congestive heart failure and the pulmonary vascular obstructive changes develop early in life, early diagnosis and surgical correction are essential. We experienced two cases of anomalous origin of the right pulmonry artery from the ascending aorta; aorticopulmonary septal...
