J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1995;38(12):1603-1609.   Published online December 15, 1995
The recognition that deletion of 22ql1 is a common cause of varied malformations and clinical disorders took more than a decade to achieve. Deletions of chromosome 22ql1 have been seen in association with DiGeorge syndrome (DGS) and velo¡ⓒ cardio-facial syndrome (VCFS). The large clinical overlap between DiGeorge syndrome and velo-cardio-facial syndrome suggest an aetiological connection. CATCH 22 synd¡ⓒrome is characterized...

Infantile choledochal cyst is another primary disease presenting with neonatal cholestasis but its incidence is so low that it has been reported rarely. Choledochal cyst in infancy has been known to have clinically and anatomically different characteristics from ones after infancy. Thus...

The idiopathic long QT syndrome is a very rare disorder in which affected individuals have an unusual electrocardiographic repolarization abnormality (QT prolongation) and a propensity to syncope and fatal ventricular arrhythmia. Since Jervell and Lange-Nielsen first described this syndrome in 1957, progression has been made in the pathophysiology and in the treatment. Sinus bradycardia may be associated with this syndrome sometimes,...
