Yeong Jee Kim, Keun Lee
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1986;29(7):723-729.   Published online July 31, 1986
In clinical practice, creatinine clearance(Ccr) remains the most commonly used laboratory assessment of glomerular function despite methodological and technical problems of urine collection. Schwartz et al. in 1976,reported that an accurate estimate of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) could be obtained from the simple determinations of plasma creatinine (Per) and body length(L):GFR(ml/min/1.73cm2)=k• L(cm)/Pcr(mg/100ml), (k=constant). The purpose of this investigation is to compare...

With the dramatic lowering the mortality rate of bacterial meningitis since the introduction of antibacterial agents, multiple attacks of bacterial meningitis no longer are a curiosity. So multiple attacks of bacterial meningitis may be the only indication of the existence of an abnormal communication between the nasopharynx or ear and the meningeal space and such a communication must be found. We...
