Kyusang You, So Mi Kim, Dongmin Kim, Kyoungmin Ryu, Mee Jeong Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2021;64(8):430-432.   Published online November 16, 2020
Question: How would you treat acute life-threatening pulmonary thromboembolism occurring in nephrotic patients?
Finding: A 16-year-old woman with minimal change-associated nephrotic syndrome presented with cardiac arrest caused by an acute bilateral pulmonary thromboembolism. Her hemodynamics stabilized with resolution of thrombi while on venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) and systemic heparinization.
Meaning: In selected cases, ECMO with systemic heparinization may rescue patients from acute life-threatening pulmonary thromboembolism even without reperfusion therapy.

Question: What are the parental needs and challenges when their children return to school after cancer?
Finding: In addition to scholastic aptitude-oriented programs, emotional and psychosocial support is necessary for a successful return to school.
Meaning: Pediatric oncologists should actively engage in improving oncology practices to better integrate individualized school plans and educate peers and teachers to improve health literacy to make them understand the needs of children with cancer.

Primary leiomyosarcoma of the chest wall in a child : a case report
Jae Hyuk Choi, David Chanwook Chung, Mee Jeong Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2008;51(1):98-101.   Published online January 15, 2008
Leiomyosarcoma is an uncommon soft tissue sarcoma of mesenchymal cell origin, which shows smooth muscle differentiation. Leiomyosarcoma is seldom found in the pediatric population, and accounts for fewer than 2% of all soft tissue sarcomas. Leiomyosarcoma of the chest wall is extremely rare in children. We report here a case of an 8-year-old boy with a primary leiomyosarcoma that was...

Castleman's disease is a rare non-neoplastic lymphoproliferative disorder of unknown etiology. It is divided into three histologic subtypes; hyaline-vascular(HV), plasma cell(PC) type and mixed type (HV-PC). It has two clinical expressions. The localized form, which presents as a slow growing mass, has a relatively benign clinical course. The multicentric form is multilocated and holds significant morbidity. The mainstay of treatment...
Acute Alcohol Intoxication in a Child
Mee Jeong Lee, Hyunmi Kim, Sang Gyu Park, Soo Youn Ham
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2000;43(4):588-591.   Published online April 15, 2000
Information on ethyl alcohol intoxication in children is scarce. It is generally believed that children are more vulnerable to ethyl alcohol intoxication than adults. However, little information has been published on the effects of ethanol in the pediatric age group. The incidence of hypoglycemia and convulsions following ethanol intoxication is not known. We report a fatal case of acute alcohol...

A case of metastatic neuroblastoma to brain.
Sang Wook Choi, Mee Jeong Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1991;34(5):715-719.   Published online May 31, 1991
Metastatic neuroblastoma to whole bones and brain generally has been considered incurable, but some reports have been published with good and partial response after initial chemotherapy followed by second-look operation. But the long term survival is dismal. Recently we experienced a case of metastatic neuroblastoma to brain without neurologic symptoms confirmed by computed tomograpy, who had multiple bony metastases including skull. The whole metastatic...
