J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1996;39(6):773-779.   Published online June 15, 1996
Purpose : With development of socioeconomic status, the prevelance of adolesecnt obesity, which is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease, is increasing. Skinfold and body mass index are indirectly used measurement of obesity in clinical and epidemiologic studies. Triceps skinfold, subscapular skinfold and body mass index were measured in adolescents aged 12 to 17. Percentile values by age and sex and...

Purpose : The newborn period is a time of rapid physiological change in the gastrointestinal tract, when adaptation from a state of parenteral nutrition to the demands of enteral feeding take place. little is known about the intestinal vascular responses that accompany intestinal adaptive changes, although there is much speculation about the relationship between entreral feeding, alterations in gut perfusion,...
Changes of Measles Specific IgG after Active Immunization of Measles in Korean Children
Young Kyoo Shin, Jae Kyun Yoon, Ji Tai Choung, Young Chang Tockgo
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1996;39(6):788-796.   Published online June 15, 1996
Purpose : Despite preventive measures, measles outbreaks ocurred in 1989, 1990 and 1994 in Korea. Especially, the proportion of immunized school aged children and adolescents was increased, and the reason was, in our opinion, primary and secondary vaccine failure after measles immunization. In this context, we attempted to evaluate the changes of measles specific IgG levels in various age groups of...
Normal Values of Left Ventricular Mass by Echocardiography in Korean Children

J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1996;39(6):797-802.   Published online June 15, 1996
Purpose : Determination of left ventricular myocardial mass with echocardiography is feasible and validated. American Society of Echocardiography(ASE) issued recommendations for the quantitation of the left ventricle by M-mode echocardiography. The purpose of this study is to determine the mean value of left ventricular mass in Korean children. Methods : We measured left ventricular mass in 498 subjects(male 289, female 209) using ASE...
Predictor of Fatty Liver in Obese Children
Hyunmi Kim, Young Mi Hong, Gyoung-Hee Kim, Jung Hyun Yu
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1996;39(6):803-810.   Published online June 15, 1996
Purpose : The childhood obesity is currently increasing. The childhood obesity is difficult to treat and the response of treatment is transitory because it is caused by the hyperplasia of fatcells. The complications of obesity are hyperlipidemia, hypertension, diabetes, artherosclerotic coronary arterial disease and fatty liver. Therefore the early diagnosis and prevention of obesity from childhood is very important. This study...
Histologic Study of Helicobacter pylori-Associated Gastritis in Children
Jeong Wan Seo, Woon Sup Han
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1996;39(6):811-821.   Published online June 15, 1996
Purpose : The aim of the present study was to assess the clinical, endoscopic and histologic findings of the Helicobacter pylori(Hp)-associated gastritis in children. Methods : We have assessed 91 patient(age range 3-15 years) referred for upper intestinal endoscopy during 17 months. At least two antral biopsies were taken during endoscopy. The histological analysis and CLO test were done. The histologic changes were scored and...
Effect of Steroid Therapy on Bone Mineral Density in Children with Minimal Change Nephrotic Syndrome
Byeong Hee Son, Woo Yeong Chung, Chul Ho Kim
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1996;39(6):822-828.   Published online June 15, 1996
Purpose : Osteoporosis and growth failure have been known one of the serious side effects of corticosteroid therapy especially in children. This study was designed to evaluate the effect of long-term administration of steroids on bone mineral density(BMD) in children with nephrotic syndrome and its relationship to cumulative steroid dose, the duration of the rapy and sex. Methods : The BMD of...
The Usefulness of Clinical Scoring System as Prognostic Predictor in Neonatal Seizure
Hyunmi Kim, Gyoung Hee Kim
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1996;39(6):829-838.   Published online June 15, 1996
Purpose : Neonatal seizure is usually the presentation of underlying neurologic dysfunction rather than a disease and have high mortality and morbidity as sequalae. Therefore, the parameter predicting the neurologic prognosis is necessary. This study was performed to identify the usefulness of clinical scoring as predictor in neonatal seizure by analyzing outcomes. Methods : From 1982 to 1994, 101 neonates were admitted to Neonatal Intensive...
The Changes of the Bone Mineral Density in the Girls with Turner Syndrome, using Recombinant Human Growth Hormone
Sei Won Yang
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1996;39(6):839-845.   Published online June 15, 1996
Purpose : Estrogen deficiency causes sexual infantilism in Turner syndrome, which could decrease the bone mineral density(BMD) since birth. This decreased BMD might be contributed by the decreased growth hormone(GH) secretion. To improve the decreased BMD, estrogen therapy is recommended, especially after the pubertal age, but estrogen therpay during childhood can accelerate the epiphyseal fusion, resulting in shorter final height. There is...
The Concentration of Insulin Like Growth Factor-I(IGF-I) and IGF-Binding Protein-3 (IGFBP-3) in the Serum of Children with Growth Hormone Deficiency and the Alterations after Growth Hormone Treatment
Woo Yeong Chung, Dae-Yeol Lee
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1996;39(6):846-855.   Published online June 15, 1996
Purpose : The insulin like growth factors (IGFs) circulate complexed to IGF-binding proteins(IGFBPs). IGFBP-3 is the major circulating IGFBP and is found primarily as a 150 kDa complex which contains an acid labile subunit(ALS), IGFBP-3, and IGF-I or IGF-II and is considered to be growth hormone(GH) dependent. In this study, we measured serum IGF-I, IGFBP-3 and 150 kDa levels in sera of growth hormone...
Case Reports
A Case of Common Bile Duct Stone Treatment with Endoscopic Sphincterotomy
Do Yoon Lee, Chang Sun Yoo, Won Kyu Choi, Jae Seung Yang, Jong Soo Kim, Dong Ki Lee
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1996;39(6):856-860.   Published online June 15, 1996
The cholelithiasis and common bile duct(CBD) stone are rare problems among children. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancretogram(ERCP) and endoscopic sphincterotomy are rarely commomly utilized in the treatment of children, primarily because there are fewerindications. ERCP is an established procedure for visualization of the biliary tract. Endoscopic sphincterotomy with stone extraction has been accepted as the treatment of choice for CBD stone removal in adults. However, the role...

J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1996;39(6):866-872.   Published online June 15, 1996
Tyrosinemia type 1 is an autosomal recessive disorder caused by deficiency of the enzyme fumarylacetoacetate hydrolase(FAH). The disease is characterized by hepatic dysfuntion, hepatocellular carcinomas, renal tubular dysfunction, rickets, and neurologic crises. Two forms of the disease, acute and chronic, are thought to be from the residual enzyme activity in the liver. The diagnosis of the tyrosinemia type 1 is suggested by...
