Clin Exp Pediatr. 2018;61(2):64-67.   Published online February 28, 2018

We report the case of a 12-year-old girl who had mild encephalopathy with a reversible splenial lesion (MERS) associated with acutepyelonephritis caused by Escherichia coli.

White matter injury following rotavirus infection in neonates: new aspects to a forgotten entity, 'fifth day fits'?
Jung Sook Yeom, Chan-Hoo Park
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2016;59(7):285-291.   Published online July 31, 2016

That rotavirus infection can cause neurological symptoms in young children has been well established. However, it is surprising why rotavirus infection has been overlooked as a cause of neonatal seizures for many years, despite significant research interest in neonatal rotavirus infection. Neonates are the age group most vulnerable to seizures, which are typically attributed to a wide range of causes....

Purpose : Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) is a demyelinating disease of the central nervous system and mostly develops after viral illness or vaccinations. We investigated the clinical differences and neurologic outcomes according to the distribution of the lesions on brain MRI.

Kee Sung Yang, Soo Tack Bae, Hong Bae Kim, Ji Sub Oh
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1989;32(3):430-437.   Published online March 31, 1989
We experienced a case of Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD), which is a genetically determined metabolic disorder associated with progressive demyelination of brain white matter and adrenal insuficiency. An 11 year old male revealed rapidly evolving neuologic progression, decreased adrenal reserve, increased plasma content of very long chain fatty acids (VLCFAs) and typical radiological findings. We report here the clinical findings of this patient with brief review of...
