Clin Exp Pediatr. 2014;57(6):287-291.   Published online June 30, 2014

Moyamoya disease is a cerebrovascular condition that results in the narrowing of the vessels of the circle of Willis and collateral vessel formation at the base of the brain. Although relationships between Graves' disease and cerebrovascular accidents in Moyamoya disease are obscure, the coexistence of the two diseases is noteworthy. Moyamoya disease has been rarely reported in adolescent patients with...

Validity of Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis(BIA) in Measurement of Human Body Composition
Hyung Suck Kim, Su Yung Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2005;48(7):696-700.   Published online July 15, 2005
Propose : Body composition by bioelectrical impedance analysis(BIA) is a very useful method of analysing body composition. BIA is non-invasive, inexpensive, nonhazaedous and reproducible technique. The aim of this study was to determine the level of agreement between body composition measurement by BIA and dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry(DEXA). Methods : Data was examined in 100 children(male 58; female 42), who visited Pusan...

A Case of Acute Renal Failure Caused by Rhabdomyolysis due to Hyperosmolar Nonketotic Coma in Children
Jeong Won Kwak, Jae Min Oh, Su Yung Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2005;48(5):565-568.   Published online May 15, 2005
Hyperosmolar nonketotic coma complicated in diabetes mellitus has been a rare cause of rhabdomyolysis, although increasingly reported recently. Acute renal failure can be complicated in 15 percent of rhabdomyolysis patients, but is rare in the case of rhabdomyolysis caused by diabetic hyperosomolar nonketotic coma. We report a 14 years-old boy with acute renal failure complicated by rhabdomyolysis caused by diabetic...

Correlation between Percentage of Body Fat by BIA and Other Obesity Indices
Su Jin Kim, Su Yung Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2004;47(5):491-495.   Published online May 15, 2004
Purpose : Obesity is becoming a serious health problem in schoolage children and adolescents. There are several parameters to estimate obesity such as body mass index(BMI), skinfold thickness, obesity index and weight for height. Each parameter has some advantages and disadvantages. Bioelectrical impedance analysis(BIA) seems to be a simple, reproducible, objective and cost effective method for fat evaluation. But there...

Su Jin Kim, Ju Suk Lee, Su Yung Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2003;46(4):400-403.   Published online April 15, 2003
Congenital adrenal hyperplasia(CAH) is a recognized cause of precocious pseudopuberty. Some children with CAH also develop true precocious puberty with early maturation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis. We review a case of CAH who eventually developed central precocious puberty nine months after initial treatment with corticosteroid. A 3-year-old boy visited complaining of rapid growth, a large penis and frequent penile erections....

Comparison between Pathologically and Clinically Diagnosed Group of Acute Postinfectious Glomerulonephritis
Chul Hong Kim, Su Yung Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1999;42(12):1696-1701.   Published online December 15, 1999
Purpose : Postinfectious acute glomerulonephritis usually needs no renal biopsy. But atypical clinical course and laboratory results indicate a need for renal biopsy. Therefore, to investigate clinicopathological characteristics of postinfectious acute glomerulonephritis, we compared clinical manifestations of biopsy group with those of non-biopsy group. Methods : We reviewed the records of clinical and pathological data of 20 cases diagnosed by...
Correlation Between Clinical and Pathological Prognositic Factors of IgA Nephropathy in Children

Purpose : Clinical and pathological prognostic factors of idiopathic IgA nephropathy have been reported, but mostly in adults and a few in children. Especially studies about correlation between those factors are very rare. Methods : We studied 58 children patients who were hospitalized to our clinics and diagnosed as IgA nephropathy by renal biopsy from Jan. 1989 to Jun 1996. They...
