Discrimination of Kawasaki disease with concomitant adenoviral detection differentiating from isolated adenoviral infection
Jong Han Kim, Hye Ree Kang, Su Yeong Kim, Ji-Eun Ban
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2018;61(2):43-48.   Published online February 28, 2018
Purpose

Human adenovirus infection mimics Kawasaki disease (KD) but can be detected in KD patients. The aim of this study was to determine the clinical differences between KD with adenovirus infection and only adenoviral infection and to identify biomarkers for prediction of adenovirus-positive KD from isolated adenoviral infection.

Methods

A total of 147 patients with isolated adenovirus were identified by quantitative polymerase chain...

C-reactive protein and N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide discrepancy: a differentiation of adenoviral pharyngoconjunctival fever from Kawasaki disease

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2018;61(1):12-16.   Published online January 22, 2018
Purpose

To differentiate adenoviral pharyngoconjunctival fever (PCF) from acute Kawasaki disease (KD) using laboratory tests before results of virus-real time polymerase chain reaction and ophthalmologic examination are obtained.

Methods

Baseline patient characteristics and laboratory measurements were compared between 40 patients with adenovirus infection and 123 patients with KD.

Results

The patients with adenovirus infection were generally older than those with KD (median: 3.9 years vs....

The viruses were identified by indirect immunofluorescent method. Medical records of patients with...
Epidemiology and Clincal Analysis of Acute Viral Respiratory Tract Infections in Children(September, 1998-May, 2003)
Su-Jin Lee, Eon-Woo Shin, Eun-Young Park, Phil-Soo Oh, Kwang-Nam Kim, Hae-Sun Yoon, Kyu-Man Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2005;48(3):266-275.   Published online March 15, 2005
Purpose : Acute respiratory tract infections are the most common illnesses in children. The great majority of these infections involving lower respiratory tracts infections(LRTIs) are caused by respiratory viruses such as respiratory syncytial virus(RSV), parainfluenza virus(PIV), influenza virus (Flu), and adenovirus(ADV), etc. Our purpose was to determine seasonal epidemiology and clinical characteristic features of each viral infection. Methods : Nasopharyngeal aspirate(NPA)s...

Hyun Oh Jang, Jin A Lee, Nam Hee Kim, Eun Hee Chung, Hoan Jong Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2004;47(12):1300-1305.   Published online December 15, 2004
Purpose : Adenoviruses(Ads) are responsible for approximately 10 percent of lower respiratory tract infections(LRTIs) in children. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the prevalence of antibodies (Abs) against common serotypes of Ads in Korean children and adults. Methods : The sera were tested for neutralizing Abs against Ad serotypes 1 through 7 and 21 with a colorimetric microneutralization assay...
Etiology and Clinical Features of Severe Acute Viral Lower Respiratory Tract Infections in Children
Noo Lee Jeon, Bong Seong Kim, Yoo Kyum Kim, Soo-Jong Hong
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2000;43(12):1558-1568.   Published online December 15, 2000
Purpose : The purpose of the study is to understand the etiology and clinical features of severe acute viral lower respiratory tract infection(LRI), especially in conjunction with the use of ventilator care and/or with bronchiolitis obliterans. Methods : Etiologic agents and clinical features of severe acute viral LRI were studied from July 1998 through June 1999 in children at Asan Medical...
A Clinical Study of Adenoviral Respiratory Infection in Children
Hong Keun Kim, Se Chang Ham, Seung Yeon Nam, Young Jae Koh, Kang Mo Ahn, Sang Il Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2000;43(2):195-202.   Published online February 15, 2000
Purpose : Adenoviral respiratory infection can develop a life threatening condition similar to severe bacterial pneumonia. Despite adequate intensive care, this infection progresses to acute respiratory distress syndrome and causes permanent lung damage in some patients. In this study, we analyzed clinical features and long-term follow-up clinical data of this infection in children. Methods : Forty-seven cases of inpatients were diagnosed...
A Clinical Study on Acute Lower Respiratory Tract Infections by Adenovirus in Children
Ui Chong Chong, Mi Ran Kim, Dug Ha Kim, Hae Ran Lee, Chong Young Park, Han Sung Kim, Kyu Man Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1998;41(8):1070-1077.   Published online August 15, 1998
Purpose : This study was performed to characterize the epidemiologic and clinical features of acute adenoviral lower respiratory tract infections. Methods : Culture and indirect immunofluorescence for adenovirus was done with nasopharyngeal aspirates from patients with acute lower respiratory tract infections from April to September, 1996. Cultured virus was serotyped for type 3, 4, and 7a by neutralization test, and medical...
Etiology and Clinical Features of Acute Viral Lower Respiratory Tract Infection in Apparently Healthy children
Song Yi Nah, Jeong Yun Hong, Eun Hwa Choi, Hoan Jong Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1996;39(12):1690-1699.   Published online December 15, 1996
Purpose : Acute lower respiratory tract infections(LRIs) are an important cause of pediatric morbidity and mortality. Causes of acute LRI in infants and children include bacteria, mycoplasma and respiratory viruses. Understanding of the epidemiology, etiology and clinical features of acute viral LRI is essential to improve the methods of prevention, diagnosis and management of these infections. Methods : Viral etiologic agents and clinical features of...
Ten Cases of Severe Adenoviral Pneumonia in the Spring 1995

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1996;39(9):1247-1253.   Published online September 15, 1996
Purpose : In the Spring 1995, there was an outbreak of adenoviral infection, which caused four death out of ten patients with adenoviral pneumonia in our hospital. Clinical courses of ten patients with severe pneumonia were similar each other, and two were confirmed as adenoviral pneumonia by postmortem autopsy. Although not proven, we believe eight patients had adenoviral pneumonia. Therefore, we report clinical features...

In order to investigate the role of adenovirus in diarrheal children, we evaluated 907 children with diarrhea and 193 children without diarrhea for a 22-month. Stools were tested for group A rotavirus antigen and for adenovirus types 40/41 (Ad 40/41) by using ELISA, cell technique and indirect immunofluorescent method. Adenovirus was detected in 10.1% of the diarrheal children and 3.1%...
