Purpose : The reticuloendothelial system is composed of sinusoidal capillaries, through which even large protein molecules are freely movable between plasma and interstitial space, including the lymphatic system. Therefore, high-dose intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) would cause a redistribution of proteins between two compartments. To investigate this hypothesis, we measured plasma protein and lipid levels in patients with Kawasaki disease before and...

Jung-Hyun Lee, Young-Yoo Kim, Joon-Sung Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1996;39(9):1320-1325.   Published online September 15, 1996
Pseudomembranous colitis may result from abnormal growth of toxigenic strains of Clostridium difficile associated with antibiotic-induced alteration of the colonic microbiologic flora. C. difficile, a spore forming gram positive obligate anaerobic bacillus, is part of the normal flora and known to be the major cause of pseudomembranous colitis. We experienced a case of pseudomembranous colitis in a 14-month-old male presented with bloody mucoid diarrhea and...
