Purpose

Information on the clinical features of lung abscess, which is uncommon in children, at hospitalizationis helpful to anticipate the disease course and management. There is no report concerning lung abscess in Korean children. We aimed to identify the clinical characteristics of pediatric lung abscess and compare the difference between primary and secondary abscess groups.

Methods

The medical records of 11 lung abscess...

Food allergen sensitization in young children with typical signs and symptoms of immediate-type food allergies: a comparison between monosensitized and polysensitized children
Na Yeon Kim, Ga Ram Kim, Joon Hwan Kim, Ji Hyeon Baek, Jung Won Yoon, Hye Mi Jee, Hye Sung Baek, Yong Ho Jung, Sun Hee Choi, Ki Eun Kim, Youn Ho Shin, Hye Yung Yum, Man Yong Han, Kyu-Earn Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2015;58(9):330-335.   Published online September 21, 2015
Purpose

The clinical interpretation of children sensitized to allergens is challenging, particularly in children with food allergies. We aimed to examine clinical differences between children with monosensitization and those with polysensitization to common food allergens and to determine risk factors for polysensitization in young children <10 years of age with immediate-type food allergies.

Methods

The study included children <10 years of age with...

Joon Hwan Kim, Ji-Yeon Choi, Na Yeon Kim, Jin Woo Kim, Ji Hyeon Baek, Hye Sung Baek, Jung Won Yoon, Hye Mi Jee, Sun Hee Choi, Hyeung Yoon Kim, Ki Eun Kim, Youn Ho Shin, Man Yong Han
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2015;58(7):245-250.   Published online July 22, 2015
Purpose

Wheezing following viral lower respiratory tract infections (LRTIs) in children <2 years of age is an important risk factor for the development of asthma later in life; however, not all children with viral LRTIs develop wheezing. This study investigated risk factors for the development of wheezing during viral LRTIs requiring hospitalization.

Methods

The study included 142 children <2 years of age hospitalized...

Approaches to the diagnosis and management of chronic urticaria in children
Sun Hee Choi, Hey Sung Baek
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2015;58(5):159-164.   Published online May 22, 2015

Most guidelines for chronic urticaria (CU) in infants and children are based on limited pediatric evidence. Current evidence used to guide treatment in children is extrapolated from data focusing on older age groups. CU in children is a different and complex condition than that in adults. Furthermore, there is little published information regarding urticaria in Korean children. The aim of...

Impact factor of Korean Journal of Pediatrics on Korean Medical Citation Index and Science Citation Index of Web of Science
Chong Woo Bae, Sun Hee Choi, Man Yong Han, Yeong Ho Rha, Young Jin Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2011;54(4):152-156.   Published online April 30, 2011
Purpose

The total number of times a paper is cited, also known as the impact factor (IF) of a medical journal, is widely implied in evaluating the quality of a research paper. We evaluated the citation index data as an IF of Korean J Pediatr in Korean Medical Citation Index (KoMCI) and JCI of Web of Science.

Methods

We calculated the IF of...

Young Sil Park, Sun Hee Choi, Kye Shik Shim, Ji Young Chang, Won Ho Hahn, Yong Sung Choi, Chong-Woo Bae
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2010;53(10):880-885.   Published online October 31, 2010
Purpose

The recent trends of multiple births (MBs) conceived by assisted reproductive technology (ART) in Korea were analyzed as well as the relationship with maternal age, especially advanced maternal age.

Methods

Data were obtained from the Korean Statistical Information Service and annual ART reports from the ART committee of the Korean Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Results

MBs increased from the early 1990s; there was...

Methacholine and adenosine 5'-monophosphate challenge tests in children with atopic asthma and with nonatopic asthma, and their relationships to blood eosinophil markers
Sun Hee Lee, Do Kyun Kim, Sun Hee Choi, Young Yull Koh
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2006;49(11):1216-1222.   Published online November 15, 2006
Purpose : Though atopic and nonatopic asthma have different clinical manifestations, bronchial hyperresponsiveness (BHR) and airway inflammations are common characteristics of them. We investigated BHR to both methacholine and adenosine 5'-monophosphate (AMP), and their relationships with blood eosinophil markers in nonatopic asthma as well as atopic asthma. Methods : We studied 116 children (82 atopics; 34 nonatopics) with mild to moderate...
