Dahee Jin, Tae Hoon Heo, Jung Hye Byeon, Gun-Ha Kim, Mi Kyung Kim, So-Hee Eun, Baik-Lin Eun
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2015;58(11):446-450.   Published online November 22, 2015

Meningitis is among the most common infections affecting the central nervous system. It can be difficult to determine the exact pathogen responsible for the infection and patients are often treated with empiric antibiotics. This study was conducted to identify the most common clinical characteristics of enteroviral meningitis in children and evaluate the diagnostic efficacy of reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR)...

A Case of Partial Trisomy 9 by Balanced Maternal Translocation
Mi Kyung Kim, Young Kyoo Shin, Baik Lin Eun, Sang Hee Park, Sun Hwa Park, Soon Hyuk Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2000;43(5):700-703.   Published online May 15, 2000
Trisomy 9p syndrome was first described by Rethore et al in 1970 and about 100 cases have been reported since. The phenotypic spectrum of this syndrome is characterized by craniofacial malformation, facial deformity, skeletal and dermatoglyphic anomalies with variable degrees of mental retardation. We experienced a case of partial trisomy 9 syndrome in a 15-month-old female who had multiple congenital...

Woon Ja Chung, Kue Sook Kim, Mi Kyung Kim, Shin Na Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1995;38(9):1253-1261.   Published online September 15, 1995
Purpose : To study the incidence of iron deficiency anemia we conducted blood tests with questionnaire regrarding weaning status. We tried to figure out the relation between iron deficiency anemia and financial and educational levels of their parents. The purpose of this study is to emphasize the importance of screening for iron deficiency anemia at well baby clinic and educate mothers...

Young Mi Kim, Woon Ja Chung, Mi Kyung Kim, Shin Na Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1995;38(1):27-35.   Published online January 15, 1995
Since Dongboo City Hospital cares patients with medicaid and poor socio-economic status in large percentage, we analized all the newborns delivered at the hospital from 1984 to 1992 by their birth weights, gender, gestational age and their Medical Care System. We found our babies' mean birth weight was lower than National standard mean birth weight of 1975 and 1985 (published...

Jin Sook Kim, Young Ran Yoon, Mi Kyung Kim, Hye Kyung Han, Mi Ryung Um, Kyung Hoon Choi, Mi Na Lee, In Keol Moon, In Kweon Han
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1994;37(2):231-239.   Published online February 15, 1994
Total 8,341 pregnant women who visited Obstetric clinic Cheil General Hospital from January 1991 to July 1992 were screened for HBsAg. Sixty five women with positive HbsAg who delivered healthy babies during that period and their infants are included in the study. HBsAg, Anti-HBs, Anti-HBc, HBeAg and Anti-HBe were tested by radioimmunoassay and hepatitis B virus DNA were studied by polymerase...

Young Ran Yoon, Jin Sook Kim, Mi Kyung Kim, Sun Young Kho, Seong Ja Lee, Mi Jung Kim, Hye Kyung Han, Kyung Hoon Choi, Mi Na Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1993;36(12):1656-1662.   Published online December 15, 1993
To identify the neonates at the risk of having meconium aspiration syndrome, the perinatal characteristics and finding of fetal heart rate monitorings in 366 neonates who had meconium-stained amniotic fluid were retrospectively reviewed. The results were as follows ; 1) Overall incidence of MAS was 0.7%. 2) Mortality rate of MAS was 5.8%. 3) The mean Apgar scores at 1-and 5-minute were...
Early detection of gentamicin nephrotoxicity using urinary beta2-microglobulin in neonates.
Mi Kyung Kim, Seung Joo Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1991;34(7):940-948.   Published online July 31, 1991
Gentamicin, commonly used antibiotics in neonatal care, has a nephrotoxicity, but it is difficulto to assess renal function in early stage. This study evaluated the renal function and urinary β2-microglobulin excretion in 17 gentamicin treated and 11 control neonates. The results are as follows. 1) Urinary 02-M in gentamicin treated neonates were 0.84±0.17mg/L at postnatal day 1 and increased to 5.99±1.15mg/L at day 4, 14.17±2.39mg/L at day...

Mi Kyung Kim, Young Mi Hong, Seung Joo Lee, Keun Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1990;33(1):51-58.   Published online January 31, 1990
We studied Chlamydiazyme test in 55 infants below 6 months of age with lower respiratory tract infection, admitted to the Pediatric ward of Ewha Womans University Hospital, between October 1, 1987 and February 28, 1989. The results were as follows. 1. The overall incidence of Chlamydial pneumonia was 14,5% (8/55). All of them were below 2 months of age, so the incidence in infants below...
A case of Idiopathic Crescentic Glomerulonephritis.
Mi Kyung Kim, Hyun Joo Choi, Seung Joo Lee, Ok Kyung Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1989;32(10):1435-1441.   Published online October 31, 1989
Idiopathic crescentic glomerulonephritis is a very rare disease especially in children with poor prognosis. We experienced a case of idiopathic crescentic glomerulonephritis in a 4-year-old male patient who presented initially with a nephrotic syndrome and progressed to a rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis. We review literatures briefly.
