To investigate the association between necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) and red blood cell transfusions in very low birth weight (VLBW) preterm infants.


We studied were 180 VLBW preterm infants who were admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit of CHA Gangnam Hospital from January of 2006 to December of 2009. The subjects were divided into 2 groups: an NEC group (greater than...

The Effect of Parenteral Nutrition and Respiratory Distress Syndrome in the Early Neonatal Period on Bone Mineralization at the Time of Reaching 2 kg Body Weight in Premature Infants
Yun-Jin Lee, Su-Eun Park, Jae-Hong Park
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2004;47(4):368-372.   Published online April 15, 2004
Purpose : To evaluate the effect of parenteral nutrition in early neonatal period on bone mineralization at the time of reaching 2 kg body weight in premature infants, bone mineral density(BMD) in infants who received long-term parenteral nutrition in the early neonatal period was measured and compared with infants who received enteral nutrition only. Methods : Twenty low birth weight infants(those...

A Case of Cytomegalovirus Colitis which Occurred During Treatment of Hemophagocytic Syndrome
Sang-Nam Bae, Sung-Ryon Ahn, Yun-Jin Lee, Young-Tak Lim, Jae-Hong Park, Kyung-Un Choi, Chang-Hun Lee

Cytomegalovirus(CMV) colitis is an important opportunistic infection in immunocompromised individuals. The clinical symptoms are abdominal pain, diarrhea, colonic hemorrhage and perforation. The endoscopic appearance shows three characteristic features with focal or diffuse inflammatory changes, submucosal hemorrhagic spots, and well demarcated ulcers. We experienced a case of CMV colitis in an 8-year-old girl presented with Stevens-Johnson syndrome, vanishing bile duct syndrome and infection-associated hemophagocytic histiocytosis, which...
A Case of Nutcracker Esophagus Combined with Hypertensive Lower Esophageal Sphincter
Seong-Hun Kim, Ju-Suk Lee, Su-Eun Park, Sang-Ook Na, Jae-Hong Park
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1998;41(9):1288-1292.   Published online September 15, 1998
Nutcracker esophagus and hypertensive lower esophageal sphincter(LES) are primary esophageal motility disorders. Nutcracker esophagus have demonstrated distal esophageal contraction amplitude that exceeds the normal range(>160mmHg), without association abnormalities of the esophageal contraction wave, or lower esophageal sphinter relaxation. The criteria for diagnosing hypertensive LES take the mean LES pressure >45mmHg, LES relaxation >75% and normal peristalsis, which is a poorly...
A Case of Pulmonary Lymphangiectasis
Cheol-Hong Kim, Seong-Hoon Kim, Soo-Eun Park, Jae-Hong Park

Pulmonary lymphangiectasis is relatively a rare disorder. This disorder can be divided into three groups. First, pulmonary abnormality is associated with lymphangiectasia in other viscera(especilly intestine) and extremities. In the second group, patients have a concomitant cardiac anomaly, which appears to be associated with obstructed pulmonary venous return. The third group comprises of patients whose lymphangicetasia is not associated with...
Neonatal Purpura Fulminans due to Homozygous Protein C Deficiency
Jae-Hong Park, Sung-Sub Sim, Soo-Young Kim, Hee-Joo Jeon, Chan-Yung Kim, Hong Keun Oh, Jin-Yeong Jeong
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1992;35(5):696-703.   Published online May 15, 1992
Homozygous protein C deficiency is a rare herediatary disorder of blood coagulation resulting in microvascular and venous thromboses, usually purpura fulminans, starting shortly after birth. Protein C serves to inactivate the active forms of factor V and VIII, and increase the rate of fibrin degradation. For confirmation of homozygous protein C deficiency, the infant should have undetectable protein...
