Immunologic Considerations in the Pathogenesis of Chronic and Recurrent Sinusitis in Children

Purpose : Although the chronic sinusitis is one of the most common and troublesome respiratory diseases in children, the pathogenesis still remains unclear. It is suggested that many of the immunologic factors including allergic conditions may contribute the nasal inflammatory changes. This study was designed to evaluate and demonstrate the possible role of various immunologic factors on the pathogenesis of...
Surfactant Protein SP-A, B, and C: Purification and Biochemical Characterization
Chong-Woo Bae, Yong-Mook Choi, Joo Hyun Kang, Kil Lyong Kim, Kyung Soo Hahn
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1996;39(2):218-229.   Published online February 15, 1996
Purpose : Several kinds of exogenous pulmonary surfactants (SF), either synthetic or animalderived, are being used for the replacement therapy in respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) of newborn, especially in premature infants, and improved the neonatal mortality and morbidity. Because synthetic preparations are lack of surfactant protein (SP) and animal-derived preparations cause immunogenecity of heterogenous SP, there have been great necessity for the development of next...
The Study of Distribution of HI Antibody Titers Aganist Japanese Encephalitis Virus Among Children in Seoul

J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1996;39(2):230-237.   Published online February 15, 1996
Purpose : Incidence of Japanese encephalitis has been markedly decreased, but this disease is known to be high and lethal in the young age group. This study was designed to find out the HI antibody titers and associated factors of Japanese encephalitis of children in Seoul, and to establish the plan of vaccination. Methods : The survey was conducted from the...
Bacteriological Survey of beta-Hemolytic Streptococci from the Throats of Elementary School Children in Chinju -Compared with the Results of Children in Kangwon, Chungnam and Seoul-
Seon-Ju Kim, Kook-Young Maeng, Hyang-Im Lee, Yun-Kyong Cho, Hee-Sang Yun
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1996;39(2):238-245.   Published online February 15, 1996
Purpose : Throat culture for streptococcal pharyngitis is a gold standard to diagnose, but it may be misleading to interpret due to the carriers. The isolation rates of beta-hemolytic streptococci (BHS) and Streptococcus pyogenes in the school children in Chinju were investigated and compared with those of Kangwon, Chungnam and Seoul previously reported. Methods : Throat cultures were taken from the...

J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1996;39(2):246-254.   Published online February 15, 1996
Purpose : The incidence and clinical features of cerebrovascular disease in childhood were not clearly clarified in domestic. This study was undertaken to evaluate the clinical characteristics of cerebrovascular disease in infants and children, and its outcome, a retrospective study was performed to adequate management. Methods : We reviewed clinical records of the patients who had admitted to Inje University Pusan...
The Effect of IFN-γ and PGE2 in the Production of TNF-α by Human PBMC Stimulated with LPS
Youn Soo Hahn, Joong Gon Kim
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1996;39(2):255-264.   Published online February 15, 1996
Purpose : The purpose of this study was to observe the effect of IFN-γ and PGE2 on TNF-α production by human peripheral mononuclear cells(PBMC) that were stimulated with LPS. Methods : PBMC were separated by Ficoll-Hypaque gradient centrifugation from human peripheral venous blood and were incubated for 72 hours with or without LPS, IFN-γ, PGE2, and indomethacin according to various conditions. TNF-α activity of...

Their blood were examined for the...
Case Reports
Four Cases of Congenital Esophageal Stenosis Due to Tracheobronchial Remnants
Gi Woong Sung, So Young Lee, Yeon Ho Choi, Kyoung Mo Kim, Jeong Kee Seo, In Won Kim, Kwi Won Park, Jong Je Kim
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1996;39(2):273-279.   Published online February 15, 1996
Esophageal stenosis due to tracheobronchial remnants is a rare cause of congenital esophageal stenosis. The cause is thought to be esophageal sequestration of tracheobronchial remnants during embryonic separation. Errors in diagnosis are common and high index of suspicion is required for accurate diagnosis, and resection of primary site with anastomosis is recommanded. Although a rare entity, esophageal stenosis due to...

The subependymal giant-cell astrocytoma, a key feature of the tuberous sclerosis complex, has been reported in patients without obvious features of this condition. The tumor is a rare cerebral glioma that characteristically arise in the wall of lateral ventricle and as an intraventricular mass, causing hydrocephalus by obstruction of the foramen of Monro. We experienced a case of tuberous sclerosis...

It is also called angiofollicular lymph node hyperplasia, lymph nodal hamartoma, giant lymph node hyperplasia. It was first described in 1956 by Castleman et al. as a lesion of mediastinal mass. The etiology of CD is not clear. The histologic classification...
