Kawasaki disease has been known as an acute febrile mucocutaneous lymph node syndrome since 1967. But its definite pathophysiology still remains unclear. In order to study the immunologic basis for immunologic abnormalities in this disease, we studied the level of soluble interleukin-2 receptor (sIL-2R), interleukin-6 (IL-6) and C-reactive protein (CRP) at the acute and convalescent phases of the disease, comparing...

Hyeon Joo Choi, Seung Joo Lee
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1992;35(12):1683-1679.   Published online December 15, 1992
Since the urinary tract infection (UTI) in neonates is often associated with major urologic anomalies, early diagnosis is essential. In the screening of UTI by urine bag, contamination is a commonly encountered problem. Suprapubic bladder puncture has therefore been recommended as the best method to confirm UTI. The purpose of this study is to assess the frequency and characteristics of...
