KFD is rarely associated with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). The diagnosis of KFD can precede, postdate or coincide with the diagnosis of SLE. Our case describes a young woman, originally diagnosed as having Kikuchi's disease by lymph...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2004;47(1):111-114.   Published online January 15, 2004
Tyrosinemia type 1 is an autosomal recessive inborn error of tyrosine metabolism that caused a mutation in the gene coding for the enzyme fumarylacetoacetate hydrolase(FAH). As a result, maleylacetoacetate(MAA) and fumarylacetoacetate(FAA) are formed. The accumulated FAA is converted into succinylacetone(SA) and succinylacetoacetate(SAA) which are excreted in urine. The first report with typical clinical and biochemical findings was presented by Sakai...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2003;46(2):198-202.   Published online February 15, 2003
Of all toxic inhalant exposures, chlorine is one of the most common toxic chemical inhalants. When acutely inhaled, it can be responsible for symptoms ranging from upper air way irritation to more serious respiratory effects. It can also deteriorate lung function and lead to death. Chlorine and its compounds such as chlorinated cyanurates and hypochlorites are commonly used in water...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2001;44(7):841-846.   Published online July 15, 2001
Acute scrotal disorders(ASD) in neonates-especially the torsion of testes- are rare, and the clinical presentations are quite different from those of adolescents or adults. The neonates with ASD are generally afebrile and do not show typical symptoms. Early diagnosis and proper treatment of ASD are very important but the differentiation of torsion and orchitis is not easy in neonates. The...

Some patients of this syndrome have various abnormalities of the central nervous system. We experienced a case of Apert's syndrome with craniofacial malformations, symmetric syndactyly, occipital encephalocele...

Keum Bong Jee, Jae Kook Cha, Kon Hee Lee, Kwan Seop Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1999;42(2):279-283.   Published online February 15, 1999
Septic pulmonary emboli(SPE) is derived from a variety of sources, including infected heart valves, peripheral sites of septic thrombophlebitis and infected venous catheters or pacemaker wires. In adult intravenous drug users, the most common cause of septic emboli is tricuspid valve endocarditis, but infective endocarditis in the non-complicated ventricular septal defect is a relatively rare condition in infants and...
Three Cases of Acute Focal Bacterial Nephritis

Acute focal bacterial nephritis(AFBN) is an unusual form of localized renal infection, which has various imaging findings and should be distinguished from abscess or other renal masses. Clinical symptoms are similar to other urinary tract infections but the diagnosis needs a CT or sonographic confirmation. Treatment, which is nonoperative, consists of intensive antibiotic therapy. We report three cases of AFBN...

Kon Hee Lee, Kyung Hee Kim, Yang Ja Cho
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1989;32(9):1210-1215.   Published online September 30, 1989
Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) cause an acute cholera-like diarrhea in both human and animals. The disease process involves colonization of the mucosal surfaces of the small intestine followed by elaboration of ST and/or heat-labile enterotoxin (LT). Intestinal colonization by ETEC is mediated by specific surface-associated fimbrial or fibrillar antigens including colonization factor antigens (CFA) I and II. Isolates of E. coli from 114 children with...
