Eun Ji Go, You Jin Jung, Seung Beom Han, Byung Kyu Suh, Jin Han Kang
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2012;55(11):445-448.   Published online November 23, 2012

Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease (KFD) is a benign self-limiting disease characterized by fever and lymphadenitis. The etiology and pathogenesis of KFD is unclear. However, two hypotheses have been suggested: a viral infection hypothesis and an autoimmune hypothesis. Several KFD patients with various types of autoimmune diseases have been reported, and these reports support the hypothesis for autoimmune pathogenesis of KFD. Here, we...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2012;55(4):121-127.   Published online April 30, 2012

Improved survival of patients with childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) has drawn attention to the potential for late consequences of previous treatments among survivors, including metabolic syndrome. In this study, we evaluated changes in 3 parameters, namely, random blood glucose, body mass index (BMI), and Z score for BMI (Z-BMI), in children with ALL during chemotherapy and after completion of...

A case of meningoencephalitis caused by Listeria monocytogenes in a healthy child

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2010;53(5):653-656.   Published online May 31, 2010

Listeria monocytogenes is a facultative anaerobic, gram-positive bacillus that is isolated from the soil, vegetables, and wild or domestic animals. Listeria occurs predominantly in the elderly, immunocompromised patients, pregnant women and newborns. Infections by this microorganism are rare in healthy infants and children. L. monocytogenes may cause meningitis, meningoencephalitis, brain abscess, pyogenic arthritis, osteomyelitis, and liver abscesses in children. The...

A case of PFAPA (periodic fever, aphthous stomatitis, pharyngitis, cervical adenitis) syndrome
Joo Hee Chae, A Rum Hwang, So Hyun Park, Byung Kyu Suh
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2006;49(9):991-995.   Published online September 15, 2006
PFAPA (periodic fever, aphthous stomatitis, pharyngitis, cervical adenitis) syndrome is one of the causes of periodic fever in pediatrics with unknown etiology. It is characterized by abrupt onset of fever, malaise, aphthous stomatitis, pharyngitis and cervical adenitis without long-term sequelae. Laboratory findings of this sporadic and nonhereditary syndrome are so non-specific that the diagnosis is based on clinical findings. Oral...

Correlations of cord blood Ghrelin and leptin concentrations with anthropometry of appropriate for gestational age newborns
Jin Lee, Se Na Moon, So Hyun Park, Min-Ho Jung, Byung Kyu Suh, Byung Churl Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2006;49(1):93-98.   Published online January 15, 2006
Purpose : Ghrelin stimulates the secretion of growth hormone and other pituitary hormones, and has orexigenic effects. It may have a physiologic role in fetal and neonatal growth. Leptin secreted by the adipocytes reflects fat mass in infants as well as adults. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relation of cord blood ghrelin and leptin levels to...
Tumor Necrosis Factor and Lymphotoxin-α Gene Polymorphism in Korean Children with Type 1 Diabetes

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2000;43(10):1364-1371.   Published online October 15, 2000
Purpose : The close relationship between the size of a tumor burden and the curability of acute leukemia is well established. Therefore, it is very important to detect residual leukemia accurately at low levels. Fluorescence in situ hybridization(FISH) techniques rely on chromosome-specific and gene specific DNA probes to identify numerical and structural chromosomal abnormalities. But the detection limit of FISH...
