Ji Yeon Koh, Hee Kang, Ju Young Chung, Tae Hee Han, Chang Keun Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2006;49(7):763-768.   Published online July 15, 2006
Purpose : We investigated the risk of aspiration using the lipid-laden macrophage index(LLMI) from laryngeal lavages in infants with bronchiolitis. Methods : Laryngeal lavages from 22 infants with acute bronchiolitis caused by respiratory syncytial virus(RSV) were evaluated during the acute stage. Repeat studies were performed at 3 to 4 weeks after the initial study(remission stage). Lavage cell counts and differentials were...
Usefulness of serum procalcitonin test for the diagnosis of upper urinary tract infection in children
Dong Wook Kim, Ju Young Chung, Ja Wook Koo, Sang Woo Kim, Tae Hee Han
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2006;49(1):87-92.   Published online January 15, 2006
Purpose : It is difficult to make a distinction between lower urinary tract infection(UTI) and acute pyelonephritis(APN) during the acute phase of febrile UTI due to nonspecific clinical symptoms and laboratory findings, especially among young children. We measured the serum procalcitonin(PCT) in children with UTI to distinguish between acute pyelonephritis and lower UTI, and to determine the accuracy of PCT...

A Case of Nonspecific Ulcer of the Terminal Ileum Associated with Massive Bleeding
Ju Young Chung, Seong Jun Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2004;47(12):1344-1346.   Published online December 15, 2004
Nonspecific ulcer of the small bowel is rare in children. Nonspecific ulcer of the colon or small bowel is clinically and pathologically recognized as a disease related to intestinal Behcet's disease. Differentiation of nonspecific ulcers from Behcet's ulcer by pathologic findings is often impossible and the clinical course is similar. A 13-year-old boy was admitted due to massive lower gastrointestinal...

In Suk Lim, Min Joo Shim, Byung Eui Kim, Ju Young Chung, Chang Keun Kim, Myoung Jae Chey, Sang Woo Kim, Soung Hee Kim, Tae Hee Han
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2004;47(9):949-952.   Published online September 15, 2004
Purpose : This study was performed to evaluate of clinical manifestations of neonatal respiratory syncytial virus(RSV) infection, and to evaluate of differences of clinical manifestations between the neonates and infants who were infected by RSV. Methods : We reviewed the medical record of 75 children who were younger than 12 months of age and infected by RSV. We classified then into...
The Prevalence of Transfusion-Transmitted Virus Infection in Children
Ju Young Chung, Tae Hee Han, Eung Su Hwang
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2004;47(2):183-186.   Published online February 15, 2004
Purpose : Transfusion-transmitted virus(TTV) is an newly described nonenveloped human virus, with a circular, negative stranded DNA genome. Although a high prevalence of TTV infection in the normal population has been demonstrated, there is a still possibility of association with hepatitis according to the genotype of TTV. The aim of this study is to investigate the prevalence of TTV infection...
Bronchoalveolar Cellularity and IL-8 Levels in Patients with Post-measles Wheezing
Da Eun Jung, Byeong Eui Kim, Ju Young Chung, Jeong Yeon Kim, Sang Hyuk Ma, Chang Keun Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2003;46(8):763-768.   Published online August 15, 2003
Purpose : This study was conducted to investigate the pulmonary cellular profiles and IL-8 levels in patients with post-measles wheezing. Methods : Twelve previously healthy infants with a minimum of three episodes of wheezing after measles pneumonia(Measles wheezing, median age, 1.3 years) were recruited by a retrospective examination of hospital records. They underwent bronchoalveolar lavage(BAL) with flexible bronchoscopy, and high-resolution computed...
The Measurement of Neonatal Pulmonary Artery Pressure by Echocardiography
Ju Young Chung, Dong Chul Park
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2001;44(8):886-892.   Published online August 15, 2001
Purpose : The main purpose of this study was to conduct accurate noninvasive measurement of the pulmonary artery pressure(PAP) in the neonatal period. The other purpose was to find some descriminant factors that are correlated with pulmonary artery pressure even when there is no tricuspid regurgitation(TR) or patent ductus arteriosus(PDA). Methods : 32 cases of premature and full term infants with...
