Young Won An, Mi Jin Jung, Jee Suk Yu, Young Seok Lee, Han Wook Yoo
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2004;47(7):794-798.   Published online July 15, 2004
The acronym 'CATCH22' is characterized by many clinical manifestations such as cardiac defects, abnormal face, thymic and parathyroid hypoplasia, cleft palate and hypocalcaemia. It is now known to arise from chromosome 22q11.2 microdeletion, and it is also called 22q11.2 deletion syndrome. Hypocalcemia occurs in more than 50% cases of this syndrome, most frequently in neonatal periods, with some exceptions. Our...

Fungal endocarditis is a rare disease in infants, but it has been reported with increasing frequency among premature infants requiring neonatal intensive care. Congenital heart disease, prolonged intravenous catheterization, the use of intravenous alimentation, broad-spectrum antibiotics administration and narcotic addiction are risk factors. Candida endocarditis is an unusual but severe complication of systemic candidiasis. Its occurrence has been related to...

Short rib-polydactyly syndrome(SRPS) is a rare type of skeletal dysplasia characterized by short limb dysplasia, thoracic hypoplasia, polydactyly and multiple visceral anomalies. It is transmitted as a autosomal recessive trait. There have been 4 classic types of SRPS, of which Saldino-Noonan type is the most common, and is characterized by very narrow thorax, short limb, postaxial polydactyly, striking metaphyseal dysplasia...

The Comparison of Coronary Arterial Dimensions Measured by Cross-sectional Echocardiography with Values Obtained by Coronary Angiography in Kawasaki Disease
Mi Jin Jung, Jung Yun Choi, Shung Il Noh, Yong Soo Yun, I Seok Kang
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1992;35(8):1102-1106.   Published online August 15, 1992
In order to assess accuracy of cross-sectional echocardiographic measurements of coronary arterial dimension, measured values of coronary arterial dimensions by cross-sectional echocardiography were compared with the angiographic results. Twenty eight patients with Kawasaki diseas (male: female= 3:1, age range, 7 months-8 years) were studied by both coronary arteriography and crossleft anterior descending coronary artery, and left circumflex coronary artery) were...

Mi Jin Jung, Chung Il Noh, Jung Yun Choi, Yong Soo Yun
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1991;34(5):668-676.   Published online May 31, 1991
We compared the efficacy of each modality of treatment group in reducing the frequency of coronary artery aneurysm in children with Kawasaki syndrome. Group 1 (26 cases)-aspirin alone: Group 2 (26 cases)-intravenous gamma globulin, 400 mg per kilogram of body weight per day for five consecutive days, plus aspirin; Group 3 (21 cases)-intravenous gamma globulin, single dose of 2.0 g per kilogram of body...

Fourteen patients who had developed a chylothorax in childhood during a ten year period, from Jan. 1979 to July 1989, were reviewed by their hospital records. The chylothoraces occurred most frequently as complications of cardiothoracic surgeries in eight patients(57%). Four cases followed extrapericardial operations such as ligation of PDA and take-down of Blalock-Taussig shunt, and four cases followed intrapericardial operations such as corrective operations...
