Mee Young Baek, Kyung Hee Park, Ju Hee We, Su Eun Park
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2010;53(8):801-804.   Published online August 31, 2010
Purpose

This study aimed to evaluate the usefulness of the needle aspiration alternative to open surgical drainage of children with suppurative cervical lymphadenitis requiring surgical drainage.

Methods

From January 1998 to June 2008, we retrospectively reviewed 38 children treated with needle aspiration as management with suppurative cervical lymphadenitis instead of open surgical drainage.

Results

All 38 children underwent only 1 puncture. Two patients (5.2%) out...

Kyung Hee Park, Sung Shik Park, Ji Yeon Kim, Su Eun Park
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2008;51(9):987-991.   Published online September 15, 2008
Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease (KFD), also known as histiocytic necrotizing lymphadenitis (HNL), is a self-limited disease characterized by cervical lymphadenopathy and fever. The etiology of KFD remains unknown; however, the self-limiting nature of HNL suggests the cause of this disease could be viral infection. For this reason, several viruses have been evaluated as possible etiologies of HNL, including Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), human...

Dong Hun Rhie, Sun Hwan Bae, Ji Eun Choi, Bo Young Yun, Dong Woo Son, Choong Ho Shin, Kyung Hee Park, Jae Sung Ko, Jeong Kee Seo
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2000;43(11):1465-1472.   Published online November 15, 2000
Purpose : Congenital chloride diarrhea(CLD) is an autosomal recessive disease characterized by life-long watery diarrhea of prenatal onset with high fecal Cl- concentration. Recent studies have revealed that the protein product of the down-regulated in adenoma(DRA) gene is an intestinal anion transporter molecule and causes CLD when mutated. We investigated the clinical characteristics of CLD in Korean infants in order...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1992;35(11):1566-1572.   Published online November 15, 1992
In order to assess the growth of the mitral valve, tricuspid valve, and the aortic and pulmonary pathways in the normal human fetus, 181 fetal echocardiograms taken from 127 pregnant women (some women had repeated examinations) were analysed. Diameters were measured from cross sectional images and were correlated with gestational period. The diameter ratios of tricuspid valve/mitral valve, aorta/main pulmonary artery,...
