A Clinical Study of Atypical Kawasaki Disease - A Rate of Coronary Artery Involvement -
Jin-Sook Kim, Young-Yoo Kim, Jong-Wan Kim, Won-Bae Lee, Jin-Han Kang, Kyung-Tai Whang
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...

A Case of Persistent Left Superior Vena Cava Detected on Fetal Echocardiography
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...

Changes of Left Ventricular Diastolic Function in Normal Children
Jin-Hee Kim, Young-Yoo Kim, Won-Bae Lee, Jong-Wan Kim,, Kyung-Tai Whang
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1999;42(8):1063-1070.   Published online August 15, 1999
Purpose : Doppler echocardiography provides a noninvasive technique for the evaluation of left ventricular diastolic function. This study was performed to define the normal pattern of left ventricular diastolic filling by real-time Doppler flow mapping, and to determine how this pattern changes with aging in normal children. Methods : The changes in diastolic function in 89 normal subjects less than 15...
Changes in GFAP Immunoreactivity of Astrocytes in Rats with Reye's Syndrome Induced by Valproic Acid and the Effects of Carnitine Supplementation
Young-Yoo Kim, Kyung-Tai Whang
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1999;42(7):966-979.   Published online July 15, 1999
Purpose : This study was designed to investigate whether valproic acid(VPA) induces Reye's syndrome by analyzing blood chemistry, carnitine(CARN) concentration, and the morphologic changes of hepatocytes. The changes of GFAP immunoreactivity of astrocytes were examined in rats with Reye's syndrome induced by VPA. And the effects of CARN supplementation on Reye's syndrome were also investigated. Methods : Ten rats were assigned...

A Case of Intracoronary Collaterals Misinterpreted as Segmental Stenosis in Kawasaki Disease - Descriptive Method of Coronary Arterial Lesions -
Hee-Sun Chung, Young-Yoo Kim, Seung-Il Kim, Jong-Wan Kim, yung-Tai Whang
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1998;41(12):1709-1716.   Published online December 15, 1998
Visualization of coronary collaterals in coronary arteriography performed in vivo constitutes an important finding, and particularly in the presence of coronary artery disease, it allows observations related to the hemodynamic consequences of the disease process. Undoubtedly, the presence of collateral flow indicates that a compensatory mechanism has developed to ameliorate the detrimental effect of blood flow cessation due to obstruction...
A Case of Tuberculous Pneumonia in Infancy
Joon-Sung Lee, Young-Yoo Kim, Jong-Wan Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1997;40(4):559-566.   Published online April 15, 1997
A rare but serious complication of tuberculosis in a child occurs when the primary infection is progressively destructive. It is difiicult to differentiate from other bacterial pneumonias. We experienced a case of tuberculous pneumonia in a 73-days-old male who presented with cough, fever and progressive dyspnea. Chest X-ray shows diffuse pneumonic consolidation on right upper lung field, Mantoux test was positive...
A Case of Pseudomembranous Colitis due to Clostridium difficile
Jung-Hyun Lee, Young-Yoo Kim, Joon-Sung Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1996;39(9):1320-1325.   Published online September 15, 1996
Pseudomembranous colitis may result from abnormal growth of toxigenic strains of Clostridium difficile associated with antibiotic-induced alteration of the colonic microbiologic flora. C. difficile, a spore forming gram positive obligate anaerobic bacillus, is part of the normal flora and known to be the major cause of pseudomembranous colitis. We experienced a case of pseudomembranous colitis in a 14-month-old male presented with bloody mucoid diarrhea and...
