Song Yi Han, I Re Lee, Se Jin Park, Ji Hong Kim, Jae Il Shin
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2016;59(3):139-144.   Published online March 31, 2016

Acute pyelonephritis (APN) is a serious bacterial infection that can cause renal scarring in children. Early identification of APN is critical to improve treatment outcomes. The neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is a prognostic marker of many diseases, but it has not yet been established in urinary tract infection (UTI). The aim of this study was to determine whether NLR is a...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2011;54(10):425-428.   Published online October 31, 2011

Ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC) deficiency is well known as the most common inherited disorder of the urea cycle, and 1 of the most common causes of hyperammonemia in newborns. We experienced a case of a 3-day-old boy with OTC deficiency who appeared healthy in the first 2 days of life but developed lethargy and seizure soon afterwards. His serum ammonia level...

A Case of Congenital Megacystis Due to Non-Obstructive Urinary Retention Associated with Intestinal Malrotation and Hypoperistalsis
Tai Young Ham, Jeong Hoon Kim, Ji Hong Kim, Jae Seung Lee, Seok Ju Han, Choon Sik Yoon, Soon Won Hong
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2004;47(1):95-99.   Published online January 15, 2004
Congenital megacystis with bilateral hydroureteronephrosis is most commonly associated with posterior urethral valves, prune-belly syndrome, vesicoureteral reflux, or nonrefluxing, nonobstructive megaureters. Among the other cause of congenital megacystis, megacystis-microcolon-intestinal hypoperistalsis syndrome(MMIHS), which is characterized by megacystis, microcolon and hypoperistalsis of the intestines with resultant abdominal distension, is a rare cause of functional obstruction of urinary tracts in childhood. It was...
