Purpose : Many gene polymorphisms are associated with coronary artery abnormalities in Kawasaki disease. Catechol-O- methyltransferase (COMT) plays an important role in the metabolism of catecholamines, catechol estrogen, and catechol drugs. Polymorphisms of the COMT gene are reported to be associated with myocardial infarction and coronary artery abnormalities. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between COMT...

Conjoined twins are known to be very rare congenital malformations and may be viewedas examples of incomplete twining. Because of their associated anomalies, particularly of cardiovascular system, they usually survive only short postnatal period. We have experienced 2 cases of conjoined twins. One case of dicephalus dipus dibrachius and another case of thoracopagus are presented with brief review of literature.

Agenesis of the corpus callosum is a form of dorsal midline dysgenesis Malformation of the corpus callosum may vary from partial absence of the corpus callosum and surrounding structure. We experienced a case of corpus callosum agenesis in a one day old neonate who showed facial anom- alies. Brain CT demonstrated a typical picture of corpus callosum agenesis and then we confirmed by autopsy. A brief...

We experienced a case of asphyxiating thoracic dystrophy in one day old female with a chief complaint of respiratory difficulty, cyanosis, small thoracic cage and polydactyly. The diagnosis was made on the basis of typical morphologic feature, radiologic finding and autopsy finding. A brief review of the related literature was made.
