Sang-Hyun Hwang, Jong Hee Hwang, Jin Soo Moon, Do-Hoon Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2012;55(2):35-41.   Published online February 14, 2012

Passive exposure to tobacco smoke significantly contributes to morbidity and mortality in children. Children, in particular, seem to be the most susceptible population to the harmful effects of environmental tobacco smoke (ETS). Paternal smoking inside the home leads to significant maternal and fetal exposure to ETS and may subsequently affect fetal health. ETS has been associated with adverse effects on...

Ji Won Kwon, Byung Eui Kim, Mi Jung Park, Sang Woo Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2006;49(1):18-23.   Published online January 15, 2006
Purpose : The reliability of hair mineral analyses regarding nutritional status, environmental exposure or diseases is controversial. The aim of this study was to determine the normal reference range of hair mineral concentration of Korean children. Methods : We examined hair mineral concentrations of 223 children(3-12 yrs old, 110 boys, 113 girls, mean age 8.8?.2 yrs old) living in the...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2003;46(4):389-392.   Published online April 15, 2003
Netherton's syndrome is an unusual disorder which consists of triad of ichtyosiform dermatosis, multiple defects of hair shaft and an atopic diathesis. The finding of bamboo hair is pathognomic in Netherton's syndrome and the ichthyosiform dermatosis may consist of either ichtyosis linearis circumflexa or congenital ichthyosiform erythroderma. Often, variability in the clinical features leads to a delay in diagnosis in...

We prospectively studied the 55 patients with fever of unknown origin, pneumonia, hepatos-plenomegaly,...
A Study of HLA-DQA Genotyping of Hair DNA Using the PCR Method
Jae Hong You, Keon Su Lee, Jong Woo Park
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1993;36(8):1156-1164.   Published online August 15, 1993
The characterization of genetic variation at the level of DNA has generated significant advances in gene mapping and disease diagnosis, and forensic identification of individuals. It is now possible to identify individual DNA from various tissue specimens, like hair, using the PCR and oligonucleotide probes. To date, however, the number of hairs needed, the preservation conditions, and the kinds of hair...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1991;34(2):281-286.   Published online February 28, 1991
Hypomelanosis of Ito (incontinentia pigmenti achromians) is a cutaneous abnormality consisting of bizarre, whorly, linear, or patchy hypopigmentation over variable portion of body surface. Multiple assocaited defects in other systems occur in three quarters of the affected individuals. Most common- ly, the central nervous system, eye, and musculoskeletal structures are involved. It is suggested that the cutaneous abnormality, which is often detectable at birth...
