Kyung Ran Park, Hye Won Park, Tae Sung Ko, Hae Il Cheong, Sei Won Yang, Young Seung Hwang, In Won Kim, Je Geun Chi
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1996;39(10):1461-1465.   Published online October 15, 1996
MELAS(mitochondrial myopathy, encephalopathy, lactic acidosis, and sroke like episodes) is a major subgroup of heterogeneous mitochondrial encephalopathy. Recent advances in molecular genetics revealed specific mutations in the mitochondrial DNA causing MELAS. We described clinical and molecular genetic findings of a 13-year-old boy with MELAS syndrome associated IDDM(insulin dependent diabetes mellitus). For molecular genetic studies, DNAs from peripheral blood nucleated cells were used. And the A→G...
Four Cases of Congenital Esophageal Stenosis Due to Tracheobronchial Remnants
Gi Woong Sung, So Young Lee, Yeon Ho Choi, Kyoung Mo Kim, Jeong Kee Seo, In Won Kim, Kwi Won Park, Jong Je Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1996;39(2):273-279.   Published online February 15, 1996
Esophageal stenosis due to tracheobronchial remnants is a rare cause of congenital esophageal stenosis. The cause is thought to be esophageal sequestration of tracheobronchial remnants during embryonic separation. Errors in diagnosis are common and high index of suspicion is required for accurate diagnosis, and resection of primary site with anastomosis is recommanded. Although a rare entity, esophageal stenosis due to...

Infantile Choledochal Cyst Presenting with Neonatal Cholestasis; Review of Anatomical and Clinical Aspect
Jae Won Jeong, Jeong Kee Seo, Kwi Won Park, In Won Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1995;38(12):1629-1637.   Published online December 15, 1995
Purpose : Extrahepatic biliary atresia, neonatal hepatitis, Allagille syndrome are most common primary causes of the neonatal cholestasis. Infantile choledochal cyst is another primary disease presenting with neonatal cholestasis but its incidence is so low that it has been reported rarely. Choledochal cyst in infancy has been known to have clinically and anatomically different characteristics from ones after infancy. Thus...

We report three cases of cystinuria, presenting with urinary stones. A 2-year-old girl presented with urinary difficulty, hematuria, dysuria of sudden onset, and her 7-month-old younger brother also was presented with urinary difficulty, irritability on urination & stone passage. Other 6-month-old boy was admitted due to sudden onset anuria. They had radioopague renal & ureter stones and stone analysis revealed mixed...

Cystic hygroma is a true, benign, congenital multi-cystic tumor. It is thought to be arised from failure of the lymphatic system to communicate with the venous system. Frequently it occurs at birth, and it is found most commonly in the neck as painless and fluctuant mass. For many years, surgical excision has been considered as the treatment of choice. However, excision...

Hyun Jun Cho, Se Hee Hwang, Yong Seung Hwang, In Won Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1991;34(4):532-543.   Published online April 30, 1991
We studied 20 cases with brainstem glioma in childhood who admitted to the Department of Pediatrics and Pediatric Neurosurgery from Oct. 1985 till July 1990. The results were as follows: 1) About 13.5% of all pediatric brain tumors were brainstem gliomas. The mean age on diagnosis was 7.2 years and there was no difference in sex about the incidence and age distribution. 2) The symptom duration until...
