Lumbar puncture or not: when does febrile seizure require a neurodiagnostic evaluation?
Seung Soo Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2023;66(2):68-69.   Published online December 9, 2022
· A neurodiagnostic evaluation (lumbar puncture, blood tests, electroencephalography, and neuroimaging) is not indicated in most patients with simple febrile seizures.
· A lumbar puncture is indicated when a central nervous system infection is suspected in any patient with febrile seizures.
· Blood tests (glucose, electrolytes, and complete blood count) are indicated in patients with persistent seizure after benzodiazepine treatment, prolonged loss of consciousness, poor general condition, or signs of dehydration.

Behavioral therapy, the most widely proven intervention for the core symptoms of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), is required for life for individuals with ASD. Parent involvement, early detection, and early therapy play important roles. We must organize the risk factors for ASD and develop a screening tool that can be easily applied in the clinical, daycare, or school setting.

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2012;55(9):350-353.   Published online September 14, 2012

An 18-year-old boy was admitted with chest discomfort, nausea, and dyspnea at rest. At the age of 3 years, he underwent muscle biopsy and dystrophin gene analysis owing to an enlarged calf muscle and elevated serum kinase level (6,378 U/L) without overt weakness; based on the results, Becker muscular dystrophy (BMD) was diagnosed. The dystrophin gene showed deletion of exons...

Seung Soo Kim, In Kyu Lee, Jung Ho Ko, Myung Ho Oh, Chong Woo Bae
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2005;48(4):376-379.   Published online April 15, 2005
Purpose : Mycoplasama pneumoniae is a leading cause of pneumonia and exacerbates other respiratory conditions such as asthma. Surfactant protein A(SP-A) is involved in surfactant physiology and surfactant structure, and plays a major role in innate host defense and inflammatory processes in the lung. In this study, SP-A mediated mycoplasma cidal activity. The candidate-gene approach was used to study the...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2005;48(2):208-211.   Published online February 15, 2005
Primary lung cancer is unusual in children; the squamous cell variant is extremely rare. Lung cancer is classified by histologic types into small-cell lung cancer, non-small cell lung caner, carcinoid, mucoepidermoid carcinoma, and adenoid cystic carcinoma. Furthermore, non-small cell lung cancer is subclassified into adenocarcinoma, large-cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma. The incidence of lung cancer is influenced by smoking,...
A Case of Ileocolic Type Intussusception Associated with Hematemesis
Young Hee Kim, Seung Soo Kim, Eun Sook Suh
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2003;46(7):722-725.   Published online July 15, 2003
Intussusception is a common cause of lower intestinal bleeding from five to 11 months of age. Typical symptoms are paroxysmal colicky pain, irritability, vomiting, abdominal mass and currant jelly stool, but hematemesis is rare. Though the most common type of intussusception is ileocecal type, it is rarely accompanied with hematemesis. Up until the present, hematemesis has been observed rarely but...
