Clin Exp Pediatr. 2003;46(6):597-601.   Published online June 15, 2003
Trisomy 9 mosaic syndrome is a rarely reported chromosomal abnormality with high incidence of intrauterine growth retardation and perinatal death. Even a baby lives, he has severe mental retardation and significant malformations. The incidence and severity of malformations and mental retardation correlate with the percentage of trisomic cells in the different tissues. The characteristic craniofacial abnormalitis are narrow bifrontal diameter,...

Ramsay Hunt Syndrome was initially described by Ramsay Hunt in 1907 as herpes zoster of the geniculate ganglion. The frequency of RHS in patients with herpes zoster has been calculated to be about 1%. RHS affects mostly adults; however a small number of children with herpes zoster oticus have been reported. We describe a case of RHS in a healthy...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2000;43(11):1423-1429.   Published online November 15, 2000
Purpose : Microdeletion of chromosome 22q11.2 are associated with DiGeorge syndrome(DGS), velocardiofacial syndrome(VCFS) and conotruncal anomaly face syndrome(CTAFS). DGS was originally described as an immunodeficiency disorder secondary to impaired T cell production due to thymic aplasia or hypoplasia. But the frequency & severity of immunodeficiency of other clinical syndromes associated with the chromosome 22q11 deletion has not been investigated. This...
Neonatal Facial and Cry Responses to Invasive and Non-invasive Procedures
Seon Hwa Seo, Young Pyo Chang
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1997;40(11):1520-1528.   Published online November 15, 1997
Purpose : The evaluation of pain in neonates is difficult due to their limited means of communication. The aim of this study was to determine whether the behavioral reactions of facial action and cry provoked by an invasive pain-induced procedure could be discriminated from the reactions to a noninvasive pain-induced procedure in normal full-term neonates. Methods : Thirty-six healthy full-term neonates received three pain-induced...

Roberts syndrome is an autosomal recessive disorder accompanied by limb defects, craniofacial abnormalities, pre-and postnatal growth retardation. Patients with Roberts syndrome have characteristic premature separation of heterochromatin of many chromosomes and abnormalties in celldivision cycle. We have experienced a case of Roberts syndrome in an immature neonate. The patients showed characteristic clinical features of multiple encephaloceles. Severe facial mid-line clefts, and...
