A Case of Vascular Leak Syndrome During Induction Chemotherapy of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia(T Cell Type)
Kye Wool Kang, Hwang Min Kim, Won Kyu Choi, Baek Keun Lim, Chang Hun Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2001;44(9):1041-1046.   Published online September 15, 2001
Vascular leak syndrome(VLS) is characterized by endothelial damage, which causes extravasation of plasma proteins and fluid from capillaries into the extravascular space. It has been suggested that the increased vascular permeability is the result of an IL-2-induced suppression of endothelin- 1 secretion by endothelial cells, an IL-2-induced activation of the complement cascade or TNF-αrelease from IL-2-activated T-cells. A 13-year-old male patient visited our hospital...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1999;42(8):1159-1164.   Published online August 15, 1999
Propionic acidemia is an autosomal-recessive inborn error of branched-chain amino acid metabolism. It is caused by deficient activity of propionyl-coenzyme A carboxylase and is characterized by a spectrum of clinical and biochemical findings. It usually manifests in the neonatal period or early infancy. Since Childs et al first described the propionic acidemia of infants in 1961, it has rarely been...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1992;35(1):9-16.   Published online January 15, 1992
Brain computed tomograpy is particularly accurate in defining cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) space because of the relatively great density difference between CSF and brain parenchyma. This noninvasive procedure has very quickly become definitive in the diagnosis of hydrocephalus. However, while the typical clinical and radiological picture of a hydrocephalic patient leaves no doubt as to the need for adequate surgical treatment....

Infants & children with hypothyrodism usually manifest variable skeletal abnormality. These features are the delay in longitudinal bone growth, the delay in epiphyseal maturation (=delay in bone age), the disturbances in bone mineralization and charateristic multiple stippled epiphysis (cretenoid epiphyseal dysgenesis). But many pediatrician have only concerned about the delay in epiphyseal maturation. Epiphyseal dysgenesis can be used a marker to find out the begining...

Citrobacter although once regarded as nonpathogenic, has been responsible for many well- documented pathologic conditions, especially in compromised hosts. These include urinary tract, pulmonary and bone infections, gastroenteritis, gangrenous ulcer with septicemia, meningitis, and brain abscess. Citrobacter organisms have a mosaic of 0, K and H antigens that are found in the Enterobacter- iaceae. Cross reactions with antisera of other members of the Enterobacteriaceae suggest...
