Min Sun Kim, Pyoung Han Hwang, Mung Jae Kang, Dae-Yeol Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2010;53(7):766-769.   Published online July 31, 2010

Dense deposit disease (DDD) is a rare disorder characterized by the deposition of abnormal electron-dense material within the glomerular basement membrane of the kidneys. The diagnosis is made in most patients between 5 and 15 years of age, and within 10 years, approximately half of the affected patients progress to end-stage renal disease. We report a rare case of regressive...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2010;53(3):414-419.   Published online March 15, 2010

Purpose:The purpose of this study was to determine whether there is any difference in the clinical and laboratory characteristics of patients with autoantibody-positive and patients with autoantibody-negative type 1 diabetes at initial presentation. Methods:We analyzed 96 patients under 18 years of age with newly diagnosed type 1 diabetes. One or both of the pancreatic autoantibodies-glutamic acid decarboxylase autoantibodies (GADA) and...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2008;51(10):1047-1051.   Published online October 15, 2008
Purpose : This study aims to evaluate the efficacy and safety of sedatives for pediatric patients using noninvasive procedures. Methods : We performed a prospective study in 446 (aged 1 month-21 y) consecutive pediatric patients undergoing sedation to study noninvasive sedation techniques from February to August 2007. We reviewed demographic data, sedative drugs, dosage, complications, and successful rates of sedation...
Alteration of Growth Factor Expression after Acute Ischemic Renal Injury
Yang Sim Koe, Soo Yeon Lee, Won Kim, Soo Chul Cho, Pyoung Han Hwang, Jung Soo Kim, Dae-Yeol Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2003;46(7):687-694.   Published online July 15, 2003
Purpose : Regeneration and repair after ischemic renal injury appears to be modulated by circulating or locally produced growth factors. This study examined the changes of serum insulin like growth factor(IGF-I) and renal expression of IGF-I and II, vascular endothelial growth factor(VEGF), transforming growth factor-β(TGF-β), and connective tissue growth factor(CTGF) during the active regeneration period after acute ischemic injury. Methods :...
The Findings and Significances of Brain SPECT in Acute Mealses Encephalitis
Jung Chul Kim, Ju Mi Choung, So Hee Eun, Dae-Yeol Lee, Jung Soo Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2002;45(11):1373-1380.   Published online November 15, 2002
Purpose : Acute measles encephalitis(ME) is characterized by an abrupt onset of fever and obtundation, frequently accompanied by seizures and multifocal neurological signs. The aim of this study was to clarify the clinical manifestation, progression and the brain SPECT patterns in patients with acute ME. Methods : This study included 11 children with acute ME admitted to Chonbuk National University Hospital. Ten patients received a...
Insulin-like Growth Factor(IGF)-I and IGF-Binding Protein-3 in Relation to Hemoglobin Concentration in Healthy Infants
Yoon Ki Kang, Dae-Yeol Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2000;43(7):967-973.   Published online July 15, 2000
Purpose : Insulin-like growth factor(IGF-I) and IGF binding protein(IGFBP)-3 is thought to play an important role in fetal erythropoiesis. The objective of this study was to establish a relation between IGF-I, free IGF-I, IGFBP-1, and -3 with hemoglobin level in healthy term, 3-month, and 12-month old infants. Methods : Healthy term infants(n=20) were enrolled at birth, as well as 3 months(n=30) and 12 months(n=30) of...
Comparative Reactivity of 2 TU and 5 TU PPD Skin Tests
Dae Sun Jo, Kyeong Mee Lee, Dae-Yeol Lee, Jung Soo Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2000;43(5):638-643.   Published online May 15, 2000
Purpose : These days 5 TU purified protein derivative(PPD) is substituted with 2 TU PPD for the tuberculin skin test, a test essential in the diagnosis of tuberculosis in pediatric population. However, there had been no adequate criteria for the positivity of 2 TU PPD skin test. This study was performed to clarify the criteria of positive reactivity of 2...

A Case of Congenital Megacalyces
Kyeong Mee Lee, Ran Joo Kim, Dae-Yeol Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1997;40(6):883-886.   Published online June 15, 1997
Congenital megacalyces is a congenital renal disease characterized by hypoplasia of the medulla and a non-obstructive dilatation of the calyces. More than 100 cases have been reported in the literature after first described by Puigvert in 1963, but it has been reported only three cases(two cases of adults and one case of child) in the literatures in Korea. The etiology of the congenital megacalyces...

The Concentration of Insulin Like Growth Factor-I(IGF-I) and IGF-Binding Protein-3 (IGFBP-3) in the Serum of Children with Growth Hormone Deficiency and the Alterations after Growth Hormone Treatment
Woo Yeong Chung, Dae-Yeol Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1996;39(6):846-855.   Published online June 15, 1996
Purpose : The insulin like growth factors (IGFs) circulate complexed to IGF-binding proteins(IGFBPs). IGFBP-3 is the major circulating IGFBP and is found primarily as a 150 kDa complex which contains an acid labile subunit(ALS), IGFBP-3, and IGF-I or IGF-II and is considered to be growth hormone(GH) dependent. In this study, we measured serum IGF-I, IGFBP-3 and 150 kDa levels in sera of growth hormone...

A Case of Steven-Johnson Syndrome Associated with Cholestatic Hepatitis
Tae-Hee Park, Ran-Ju Kim, Byoung-Geun Lee, Soo-Chul Cho, Dae-Yeol Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1994;37(7):1016-1019.   Published online July 15, 1994
A12-year-old boy developed cholestatic hepatitis with Steven-Johnson syndrome following the use of amoxicillin. The skin lesion and general condition were improved over 2 weeks, but jaundice was gradually aggrevated. We performed liver biopsy, on 30th hospital day, which showed cholestatic hepatitis. The patient improved gradually and liver function was normalized 5 months later.
Characterization of the Novel Late T Cell Activation Proteins, 519 and 520
Dae-Yeol Lee, Alan M Krensky
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1993;36(3):409-416.   Published online March 15, 1993
The late T cell activation gene, 519, is expressed in antigen specific, growth factor dependent T cell lines and clones but not in T or B cell tumors, other hematopoietic cells, tonsil, muscle, lung, or liver. Resting peripheral blood ymphocytes(PBLs)express little or no 519mRNA, but levels increase dramatically 5~7 days after activation with alloantigen or mitoen. Four alternatively spliced transcripts...
