TORCH (toxoplasmosis, rubella, cytomegalovirus, and herpes simplex virus) screening of small for gestational age and intrauterine growth restricted neonates: efficacy study in a single institute in Korea
Mi Hae Chung, Chan Ok Shin, Juyoung Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2018;61(4):114-120.   Published online April 23, 2018

Routine screening for toxoplasmosis, rubella, cytomegalovirus (CMV), and herpes simplex virus (TORCH) in intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) and small for gestational age (SGA) neonates has become a common practice. However, the incidence of TORCH varies across countries, and the cost of TORCH testing may be disadvantageous compared to disease-specific screening. To evaluate the efficacy of TORCH screening, the medical charts...

Evaluation of Intrauterine Growth in Neonates with Congenital Heart Disease
Ji Hyun Yeo, Hee Jung Lee, Eun Sil Lee, Young Hwan Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2004;47(7):746-750.   Published online July 15, 2004
Purpose : Intrauterine growth retardatation(IUGR) is very important because of high mortality and morbidity in the neonatal period. We studied the intrauterine growth retardation pattern in neonates with congenital heart disease(CHD). Methods : One hundred seventeen cases with CHD(acyanotic, 73 cases; cyanotic, 44 cases) who had no other congenital malformation or maternal diseases that might affect fetal growth were enrolled in...
Effects of Insulin-like Growth Factor-I and 1,25-(OH)2 Vitamin D3 Concentration on Intrauterine Growth of Newborns from Mothers with Preeclampsia
In Sook Yang, Jung Hyun Lee, Hyung Shin Lee, So Young Kim, Sung Dong Choi, In Kyung Sung, Chung Sik Chun
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2004;47(5):527-531.   Published online May 15, 2004
Purpose : This study was undertaken to observe the blood levels of IGF-I and 1,25-(OH)2 Vit. D3 in maternal and neonatal compartments and the effects of IGF-I concentration on intrauterine fetal growth and 1,25-(OH)2 Vit. D3 metabolism in the presence of preeclampsia. Methods : Thirty-four full-term pregnant women with preeclampsia and their newborns(preeclampsia group) and 10 normotensive full-term pregnant women and...
Case Report
A Case of Cystinosis
Min Ho Jung, Seung On Keun, Soon Ju Lee, Byung Churl Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2003;46(6):615-619.   Published online June 15, 2003
Cystinosis, an autosomal recessively inherited lysosomal storage disease, results from impaired transport of the amino acid cystine out of cellular lysosomes. The consequent accumulation and crystallization of cystine destroys tissues, causing growth retardation, Fanconi syndrome, renal failure, eye problems, and endocrinopathies. The gene for cystinosis, CTNS, was mapped to chromosome 17p13. The diagnosis of cystinosis was made by measuring the...

Thymus Size and Its Relationship to Perinatal Diseases; Respiratory Distress Syndrome and Intrauterine Growth Retardation
Sun Mi Chung, Woo Taek Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2002;45(7):855-861.   Published online July 15, 2002
Purpose : Thymus size can be affected by several factors and perinatal diseases can be estimated by its size. The purpose of this study was to search for a relationship between cardiothymic/ thoracic(CT/T) ratio and perinatal diseases such as neonatal respiratory distress syndrome(RDS) and intrauterine growth retardation(IUGR) by measuring the width of the cardiothymic shadow at the level of the...
Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus in Children
Jee Min Park, Eun Gyong Yoo, Duk Hee Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2002;45(5):646-653.   Published online May 15, 2002
Purpose : The incidence of type 2 diabetes mellitus in children has been increasing worldwide recently, which is thought to be related to the increasing prevalence of obesity. We investigated to evaluate the incidence and the characteristics of type 2 diabetes mellitus in children and also analysed the relationship between intrauterine growth retardation and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Methods :...
Serum Levels of Insulin-Like Growth Factor-Ⅰ and Insulin-Like Growth Factor Binding Protein-3 between Short Children with or without Intrauterine Growth Retardation
Kye Shik Shim, Se Young Kim, Choong Ho Shin, Sei Won Yang
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1999;42(3):390-396.   Published online March 15, 1999
Purpose : Postnatally, 20% of children with intrauterine growth retardation(IUGR) has no catch- up growth, This might be dependent on the serum level of Insulin-like growth factor I(IGF-I), resulting in shortness. We measured serum levels of IGF-I and Insulin-like growth factor binding protein-3(IGFBP-3) in children with IUGR and normal short stature variants(NSSV) to observe whether they play a role in...
Pheochromocytoma in Two 10-year Old Children.
Young Soo Kim, Young Hoon Kim, Se Won Yang, Yong Choi, Hyung Ro Moon
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1987;30(2):207-211.   Published online February 28, 1987
We experienced two cases of pheochromocytoma in 10 year-old boy and girl. Boy had bilateral and girl had unilateral pheochromocytoma. Both patients who were severely retarded in height growth had hypertension and one patient had cardiomyopathy. In both patients, vanillylmandelic acid in urine was increased, and phentolamine test was positive. Adrenal mass was visualized by C.T. in each ease. Successful surgical removal was done,...

A Case of Glycogenosis I.
Se Yoon Eun, Sung Hwan Kim, Sang Il Rhee, Sang Woo Kim, Hye Je Cho, In Ki Park
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1984;27(4):401-406.   Published online April 30, 1984
We experienced a case of Glycogenosis I in eleven-year-old boy. Clinical features were growth retardation, general weakness, abdominal distension due to hepatomegaly. His bone age was retarded, and huge hepatomegaly and both renal hypertropy was seen in CAT. Latoratory findings revealed epinephrine resistant hypoglycemia, hyperuricemia, metabolic acidosis with increased anion gap and acetonuria without glycosuria. Light microscopic findings of liver and...
