Dae-Kyoon Yim, Sang-Taek Lee, Heeyeon Cho
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2015;58(10):402-405.   Published online October 21, 2015

IgA nephropathy usually presents as asymptomatic microscopic hematuria or proteinuria or episodic gross hematuria after upper respiratory infection. It is an uncommon cause of end-stage renal failure in childhood. Pulmonary hemorrhage associated with IgA nephropathy is an unusual life-threatening manifestation in pediatric patients and is usually treated with aggressive immunosuppression. Pulmonary hemorrhage and renal failure usually occur concurrently, and the...

Association of HLA-G gene promoter haplotype with childhood IgA nephropathy in the Korean population
Hwan Hee Jung, Won Ho Hahn, Byoung Soo Cho, Sung Do Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2010;53(4):548-553.   Published online April 15, 2010
Purpose : IgA nephropathy (IgAN) is the most commonly occurring form of chronic glomerulonephritis in pediatric cases.Human leukocyte antigen (HLA) genes have been implicated in various inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The present study was conducted to investigate the association between 2 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of the HLA-G gene and childhood IgAN. Methods : The authors analyzed and compared HLA-G gene...

Hwang Jae Yoo, Bon Su Ku, Young Tak Lim, Su Yung Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1998;41(8):1093-1101.   Published online August 15, 1998
Purpose : Clinical and pathological prognostic factors of idiopathic IgA nephropathy have been reported, but mostly in adults and a few in children. Especially studies about correlation between those factors are very rare. Methods : We studied 58 children patients who were hospitalized to our clinics and diagnosed as IgA nephropathy by renal biopsy from Jan. 1989 to Jun 1996. They...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1991;34(3):317-322.   Published online March 31, 1991
A Prospective study was conducted to see the changes of immune system in recurrent gross hematuria (IgA nephropathy and non-IgA nephropathy) and HSP nephritis in children. Study patients consisted of 60 children with recurrent gross hematuria and Henoch-schdnlein purpura nephritis (8 IgA nephropathy, 24 non-IgA nephropathy and 28 HSP nephritis). The cellular immune indices (total T, T4, T8 cells and T4/T8 ratio) and humoral...

Hae Il Cheong, Han Wook Yoo, Kwang Wook Ko
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1986;29(6):633-643.   Published online June 30, 1986
We analyzed clinical findings, pathological findings and clinico-pathological correlations in 55 children with idiopathic IgA nephropathy confirmed immunopathologically, and the results were as follows; 1) The mean age at onset was 9.65±2.45 years with relatively even distribution in school ages and males outnumbered females by 1.75 : 1. 2) The main mode of presentation was typical...

Myung Chul Hyun, Geum Joo Kim, Kuhn Soo Lee, Ja Hoon Koo
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1986;29(5):498-503.   Published online May 31, 1986
A clinico-pathological observation was done on 23 children with primary hematuria, who had been admitted to the Pediatric ward of KNU Hospital from January 1981 to August 1985. All children were undergone percutaneous renal biopsy. The following resullts were obtained; Sex distribution showed male predominance with male to female ratio of 2.8:1 and 11 〜15 years of age group...
A Clinical and Pathological Study of Recurrent Hematuria in Chilhood.
Moon Soo Park, Kwang Wook Ko
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1982;25(6):571-583.   Published online June 30, 1982
The clinical, laboratory, and renal biopsy finding in 22 chilren with recurrent hematuria are presented. 1.The mean age at oneset was 7 6/12 years, and male to female ratio was 1.8:1. The gross hematuric attack was preceded by upper respiratory infection in 15 cases(68%), while strenuo-us exercise in 10 cases(45%). Loin pain was accmpanied with gross hematuria in 4 cases(18%)....

Ho Jin Lee, Woon Sik Kim, Don Hee Ahn, Keun Chan Sohn, Hyun Soon Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1981;24(5):485-491.   Published online May 15, 1981
Two cases of IgA nephropathy in an 11-year-old girl(Case I) and a 10-year-old boy(Case II) were presented. Case I, an 11-year-old schoolgirl, had recurrent painless hematuria of 6-month duration which began with URI symptoms at the onset. No edema was noted and urine volume was sufficient throughout the course. Mild proteinuria had been noted from time to time. Blood pressure...
