Purpose : The purpose of this study was to assess the frequency of acute rheumatic fever(ARF) among children in Korea and to describe trends in its clinical characteristics compared to data from a previous study(1978-1987). Methods : A mailed questionnaire survey sent to the pediatric departments of 13 general hospitals in Korea requested the total number of patients with ARF and...

Reccurent Unilateral Lung Collapse in an Asthmatic Child
Yul-Yi Yeon, Kyung-Yil Lee, Dong-Jun Lee, Ji-Whan Han, Sung-Soo Hwang, Kyong-Su Lee

Abnomalities in the production and transport of airway secretions play an important role in the pathophysiology of asthma. Segmental atelectasis as a complication of asthma, is relatively common in children. On the other hand, massive atelectasis such as the collapse of one lung is a very rare occurence. We report a seven-year-old male asthmatic patient with right lung collapse caused by mucoid impaction. Fourteen...

Immunologic Alterations of Peripheral Mononuclear Cells by Intravenous Immunoglobulin in the Acute Stage of Kawasaki disease
Ji-Whan Han, Kyung-Yil Lee, Kyong-Su Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1998;41(6):813-824.   Published online June 15, 1998
Purpose : High dose intravenous immunoglobulin(IVIG) therapy is effective in reducing the incidence of coronary artery aneurysm in Kawasaki disease(KD) patients, however, the precise mechanisms by which IVIG reverses the immune activation is unknown. Methods : The sera and peripheral mononuclear cells(PBMCs) were obtained from 10 KD patients in the acute stage(24 hrs before) and 24 hrs after one dose of IVIG(2g/kg) treatment. We measured...

Dae-Eui Hong, Kyung-Yil Lee, Ji-Whan Han, Sung-Soo Hwang, Kyong-Su Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1997;40(10):1453-1457.   Published online October 15, 1997
Purpose : To evaluate the efficacy of steroid therapy on prevention of development and progression of coronary artery aneurysm in intravenous immune globulin(IVIG)-resistant Kawasaki disease, we treated three children with high dose of intravenous methylprednisolone followed by low dose oral prednisolone. Methods : We selected three children with Kawasaki disease who did not repond or who initially responded but soon developed recrudescent fever after retreatment...

A Case of Acute Viral Myositis
Jong-Hoon Kwak, Kyung-Yil Lee, Ji-Whan Han, Sung-Soo Hwang, Jae-Kyun Huh, Kyong-Su Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1996;39(4):572-576.   Published online April 15, 1996
Diffuse myalgia is common in transient systemic viral infections but overt myositis, with weakness and signs of muscle inflammation, rarely accompanies viral infection in chidren. We describe a 8-year-old boy with severe myalgia and tenderness in both lower extremities, whose unusual skeletal muscle uptake on Technetium-methylene diphosphate bone scan helped to diagnosis of myositis. Clinical course, muscle-derived enzyme studies(AST, ALT,...
