Eun Sun Yoo, Young Mi Hong, Kyung Hee Kim, Hae Soo Gyu, Eun Chul Chung
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1994;37(9):1296-1304.   Published online September 15, 1994
T cell lymphoblastic lymphoma is characterized by immature lymphoid cells that are indistinguishable from the lymphoblasts and prolymphocytes of acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Several characteristic clinical features of lymphoblastic lymphoma, with include a high male-to-female ratio, a relatively high incidence in older children and young adults, the frequent presence of mediastinal involvement at the time of diagnosis. Also, this disease is...

Pulmonary Venous Flow Pattern by Doppler Echocardiography before and after Closure of Ductus Arteriousus in Newborns
Young Mi Hong
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1994;37(9):1213-1219.   Published online September 15, 1994
Color Doppler echocardiography was performed to evaluate pulmonary venous flow pattern at 1st~2nd day of birth in 84 fullterm newborns (36: patent ductus arteriosus, 48: closed ductus arteriosus). Aortic and pulmonic diameter, velocity and integral were estimated. The purpose of this study ascertained that patent ductus arteriosus changed the pulmonary vein velocity and flow integral. The results were...
Evaluation of Pulmonary Venous, Mitral and Aortic Flow Pattern by Doppler Echocardiography in Neonates
Hye Soon Kim, Young Mi Hong, Gyoung Hee Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1994;37(5):596-605.   Published online May 15, 1994
Pulmonary vein velocities have recently been estimated in conjunction with mitral flow velocities to increase our understanding of ventricular filling. The advent of transesophageal echocardiography with pulsed doppler imaging capability has provided a method by which both the mitral valve and pulmonary vein velocities can be easily recorded because of the posterior approach providing unimpeded interrogation of cardiac structures. The purpose...
Dermatophagoides Farinae Specific IgG-Subclass Antibody in Allergic Children
Young Mi Hong, Kyung Hyo Kim, Eun Ae Park, Gyoung Hee Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1993;36(10):1651-1358.   Published online October 15, 1993
For determining the distribution of specific IgE and IgG-subclass antibodies and their role in allergic disorders, we measured the serum levels of specific IgG-subclass and IgE antibodies to Dermatophagoides farinae(Df) on 60 atopic children, aged between 8 to 12. All of them had positive skin test to Df, and was grouped into three: children with asthma only (group 1), with...

Young Mi Hong
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1992;35(10):1343-1354.   Published online October 15, 1992
The purpose of this study is to establish normal values for Doppler aortic and pulmonary artery flow velocity measurements, adjusted for age and the other parameters, which might be used for evaluating patients with suspected abnormalities of left and right sided hemodynamics. Blood flow velocity measurements were made in the ascending aorta and proximal main pulmonary artery of 117 pediatric normal...

Acquired Persistent Cytomegalovirus Infection : An Association with Common Variable Immunodeficiency
Min Hyea Kim, Young Mi Hong, Sung Joo Lee, Je Geun Chi, Dong Soo Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1992;35(9):1272-1279.   Published online September 15, 1992
Acquired persistent cytomegalovirus infection was diagnosed by anti CMV antibody and lymph node biopsy and persisted in a 3-year-old boy with recurrent episode of high fever, lymphadenopathy hepatosplenomegaly and pneumonia. Initial immunologic abnormalities including low serum IgG, high IgM decreased T4 and T4/T8 ratio finally progressed to immunologic paralysis which was compatible to common variable immunodeficiency. This is the first case which...
Adult Respiratory Distress Syndrome in Infancy
Hoo Jae Hann, Young Mi Hong, Seung Joo Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1992;35(2):245-251.   Published online February 15, 1992
Adult Respiratory distress Syndrome (ARDS) is a clinical entity characterized by respiratory distress and diffuse pulmonary infiltrates due to increased permeability after various kinds of insult to alveolar-capillary membrane. We experienced a case of ARDS in a 3-1/2 month old girl after Pseudomonas pneumonia, cardiac arrest and generalized convulsion. This is the report on her clincal and autopsy findings with brief review...

The effect of ultrasonic nebulized salbutamol in the first attacked wheezy infants.
Soo Young Kweon, Young Mi Hong, Gyung Hee Kim, Seung Joo Lee, Keun Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1991;34(11):1505-1511.   Published online November 30, 1991
Wheezing is one of the most common symptom in the first 2 year of life. Although the effect of bronchodilator in wheezy infants was still debating, various form of bronchodilator has been tried untill now. This study was done to estimate the value of ultrasonic nebulized salbutamol as a bronchodilator test and maintenance therapy compared to epinephrine and aminophylline in 44 wheezy infants below 24...
The Diameter of Coronary Arteries in Infants and Children Without Heart Disease.
Young Mi Hong
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1990;33(10):1353-1361.   Published online October 31, 1990
Two dimensional echocardiographic examinations of the proximal left and right coronary artery were performed in 140 infants and children without heart disease. Eighty boys and 60 girls were studied whose ages ranged from newborn to 15 years old. The diameter of the proximal left cornonary artery was 0.8 mm in newborn and 1.9 mm in teenagers. The diameter of the proximal right coronary artery...
The Change of Anti-HBs Titer after Hepatitis B Vaccination in Newborn.
Ji Hye Kang, Young Mi Hong, Seung Joo Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1990;33(5):598-605.   Published online May 31, 1990
Hepatitis B vaccination is an accepted preventive measure for all newborn as well as the risk group. However, there is some uncertainty about the persistence of anti-HBs and the timing of booster vaccination. We studied anti-HBs titer, positive rate and minimum protective rate in relation to time interval after the third vaccination in 102 infants bom to HBsAg negative mother (Group I) and 52...
A Case of Transient Myeloproliferative Disorder in Down's Syndrome.
Ji Hye Kang, Young Mi Hong, Kyung Hee Kim, Seung Joo Lee, Ki Sook Hong, Ok Kyung Kim, Je Geun Chi
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1990;33(2):252-258.   Published online February 28, 1990
Transient myeloproliferative disorder has been reported in infant with Down's syndrome during neonatal period. This is clinically and hematologically indistinguishable from congenital acute leukemia. In contrast to congenital leukemia, complete clinical and hematological recovery occurs within weeks to months of diagnosis without antileukemic treatment. A neonate presented with jaundice, hepatosplenomegaly and mongoloid face was diagnosed as Transient myeloproliferative disorder. We report this case with a review of...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1990;33(1):75-80.   Published online January 31, 1990
The anemia of acute infectious disease has come to attention recently, since iron deficiency anemia has decreased. We screened for anemia in children admitted to Ewha Womans University Hospital due to acute infectious disease between January 1, 1986 and July 31, 1988, and studied the incidence and characteristics of anemia in acute infectious diseases. The result were as follows: 1) The incidence of anemia in acute...

We studied Chlamydiazyme test in 55 infants below 6 months of age with lower respiratory tract infection, admitted to the Pediatric ward of Ewha Womans University Hospital, between October 1, 1987 and February 28, 1989. The results were as follows. 1. The overall incidence of Chlamydial pneumonia was 14,5% (8/55). All of them were below 2 months of age, so the incidence in infants below...
ABO Gene Frequency in ABO Hemolytic Disease of Newborn.
Young Mi Hong, Keun Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1988;31(9):1105-1113.   Published online September 30, 1988
ABO hemolytic disease in newborn due to ABO incompatibility between mother and infant is one of common cause of neonatal hyperbilirubinemia and early detection has been emphasized due to its possible neurologic sequelae. Many studies reported prevalence difference of ABO hemolytic disease in various races, which could be ascribed to different frequency of ABO genes in races. From Feb. 1986 to May 1987 full...

A Case of Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis.
Gye Ja Lee, Yong Aee Chun, Young Mi Hong, Young Min Ahn, Se Hoon Park
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1986;29(3):342-347.   Published online March 31, 1986
Toxic epidermal necrolysis appears to be a hypersensitivity phenomenon triggered by many factors: drugs, infections, vaccination, radiotherapy and malignancies. Widespread epidermal necrolysis rapidly follows blister formation at epidermal-dermal junction. The case fatality rate is approximately 25%. The disease consists of a prodrome of malaise, lethargy, and fever followed by erythema and massive bullae formation. This paper presented a case...
