Serum Pepsinogen Ⅰ, Ⅱ Levels and Upper Gastrointestinal Diseases in Children with H. pylori Infection
Je Woo Kim, Ki Sup Chung
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1998;41(2):200-208.   Published online February 15, 1998
Purpose : In H. pylori infection serum pepsinogen Ⅰ/Ⅱ ratio decreases and pepsinogen Ⅱ level is increased. Increased serum pepsinogen Ⅱ level correlates with pathologic severity of gastritis. We assayed serum pepsinogen Ⅰ, Ⅱ levels and pepsinogen Ⅰ/Ⅱ ratio to evaluate the relationship between the serum pepsinogen level and upper gastrointestinal diseases. Methods : One hundred and sixty-five children who had...

Choledochal cysts are congenital or acquired lesions of the biliary tree with a cystic dilatation of the bile duct. We experienced a choledochal cyst accompanying acute pancreatitis caused by anomalous pancreaticobiliary ductal union(APBDU) in a 2 year old boy. The choledochal cyst associated with APBDU is rarely encountered in the clinical field, and thus we report this case with the presentation of abdominal ultrasonogram, computed...
