J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1996;39(12):1680-1689.   Published online December 15, 1996
Purpose : To assess the relationship between the complications of mycoplasma pneumonia and titers of cold agglutinin and mycoplasma antibody in children. Methods : 120 cases of mycoplasmal pneumonia in children who were admitted to the Pediatric Department of Kwangju Christian Hospital between June 1993 and May 1994 were analyzed. Results : 1) The peak incidence of age was between 2 and...
Etiology and Clinical Features of Acute Viral Lower Respiratory Tract Infection in Apparently Healthy children
Song Yi Nah, Jeong Yun Hong, Eun Hwa Choi, Hoan Jong Lee
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1996;39(12):1690-1699.   Published online December 15, 1996
Purpose : Acute lower respiratory tract infections(LRIs) are an important cause of pediatric morbidity and mortality. Causes of acute LRI in infants and children include bacteria, mycoplasma and respiratory viruses. Understanding of the epidemiology, etiology and clinical features of acute viral LRI is essential to improve the methods of prevention, diagnosis and management of these infections. Methods : Viral etiologic agents and clinical features of...
Reappraisal of the Efficacy of Measles Vaccination
Sung Ho Cho, Hyo Geun Ju, Chang Hee Cho, Young Youn Choi, Jae Suk Ma, Tae Joo Hwang
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1996;39(12):1700-1706.   Published online December 15, 1996
Purpose : Measles is one of the most highly communicable infectious disease, but has become a rare disease with the widespread use of vaccine. Recently, however, resurgence of the disease in school aged or adolescents who had received the vaccine before or at the 15 month warrants reappraisal of the efficacy of the vaccination. The purpose of this study was...
The Risk Factors related to Recurrent Intussusception by Ultrasonography
Eun sun Yoo, Jeong Wan Seo, Seung Joo Lee
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1996;39(12):1707-1716.   Published online December 15, 1996
Purpose : We investigate the risk factors of recurrence after first intussusception. Methods : We have studied the relationship of the clinical features and ultrasonographic findings and the risk of recurrent intussusception in 97 patients with reduced intussusception including 22 recurrent intussusception who admitted at the department of pediatrics at Ewha Womans University Mok-dong hospital from September 1993 to Feburary 1996. Results...
Myocardial Functions Estimated by Pulsed Doppler Echocardiography in Patientswith Chronic Renal Failure
Hyun June Huh, Byung Ho Choi, Myung Chul Hyun, Sang Bum Lee
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1996;39(12):1712-1728.   Published online December 15, 1996
Purpose : The objectives of this study were to estimate myocardial functions in patients with chronic renal failure by pulsed Doppler echocardiography, and investigate correlation between Doppler and disease parameters. Methods : We studied 13 patients with chronic renal failure whose creatinine clearance rate less than 25ml/min. Using pulsed Doppler echocardiography with curve following method, we measured peak velocity, mean velocity, velocity-time integral and peak...
Clinicopathological Study about Childhood Primary Nephrotic Syndrome Resistant to 4-week Daily Steroid Therapy
Jung Sue Kim, Il Soo Ha, Hae Il Cheong, Yong Choi
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1996;39(12):1729-1735.   Published online December 15, 1996
Purpose : Steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome in children is difficult to manage and tends to progress to chronic renal failure. We studied clinicopathological correlations in primary nephrotic syndrome in children resistant to 4-week daily steroid therapy. Methods : Among children who had been admitted to Seoul National University Children's Hospital during the period between Oct. 1985 and Jul. 1995 and diagnosed as primary nephrotic syndrome, 87...
Evaluation of theIndications of Renal Biopsy in Children with Primary Nephrotic Syndrome
Seung Ju Lee
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1996;39(12):1736-1744.   Published online December 15, 1996
Purpose : Percutaneous renal biopsy in children with primary nephrotic syndrome(NS) contributed to establish the renal pathology and clinicopathological correlation. The most common minimal change lesion(MCL) was steroid sensitive and could be predicted by clinical and laboratory findings. It was uniformly agreed that most nephrotic children who were predicted as MCL, should receive an 8 week course of prednisolone before considering renal biopsy. Early indications...

Purpose : Although it is important to know the causes of childhood seizures according to the age, the clinical studies on this topic are rare in Korea. So, I would like to perform this clinical study to evaluate the frequencies of the age-related seizure causes in children. Methods : This study was retrospectively undertaken to evaluate the age and sex distribution,...

We performed this study to compare the following factors during 1980's and 1990's : sex distribution, urban and rural distribution, causative substances. Methods : A clinical study was performed on 90 cases of acute poisoning who...
Case Reports
An Autopsy Case of Tracheal Agenesis Type 2
Hyun Joo Lee, Eun Ae Park, Seung Joo Lee, Mi Jeong Kim, Soon Hee Seong
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1996;39(12):1759-1762.   Published online December 15, 1996
Tracheal agenesis is the rare and uniformly lethal anomaly that presents with severe respiratory distress and aphonia after birth. In this anomaly, the trachea is usually absent and air is reaching the bronchi through a communication with the esophagus. The diagnosis should be suspected in a nowborn infant with respiratory distress whose intubation is difficult. We report an autopy case of tracheal...

We experienced a case of abdominal wall abscess originated from abdominal wall hematoma in 3 year old girl, who complained of abdominal pain, fever and lethargy. On admission, abdominal ultrasonography, abdominal computed tomography, and diagnostic needle aspiration were performed. Incision was made over the abscess so necrotic tissue and pus were evacuated. A nelaton catheter drain was placed into abscess cavity...
