Therefore the authors analized the clinical features of patients diagnosed of varicella to aid in understanding...
Echocardiographic Study of the Ventricular Septal Defect with Subaortic Ridge
Kyeung Hee Moon, Pyoung Han Hwang, Chan Uhng Joo
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1997;40(5):629-634.   Published online May 15, 1997
Purpose : The easy recognition and characterization of a discrete or fixed subaortic ridge by echocardiography provides a method for prospective study of the coexistence of ventricular septal defect(VSD) and subaortic ridge. In the presence of a VSD, a subaortic ridge may be clinically silent, but the obstruction can progress if the VSD is surgically or spontaneously closed. This study...

Clinical Features of Adrenocortical Neoplasms
Jung-Eun Lee, So-Chung Chung, Duk-Hi Kim, Ho-Sung Kim
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1997;40(5):680-689.   Published online May 15, 1997
Purpose : Adrenocortical tumors are uncommon in children and comprise only a small proportion of primary adrenal neoplasms. The biologic behavior of these tumors may be very difficult to predict, and their rarity has hindered identification of clinical characteristics. Patients with functioning tumors have excessive steroid hormone production, and the clinical manifestation depends on the predominant hormone produced. The detection of...
Production of Interleukin-1α and Tumor Necrosis Factor-α by Human Cord and Adult Blood Mononuclear Cells Stimulated by TSST-1 and LPS
Eun Ae Park, Kyung Hyo Kim, Gyoung Hee Kim
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1997;40(5):690-700.   Published online May 15, 1997
Purpose : Immature immunological defens mechanism in the neonate may contribute to the high susceptibility to overwhelming sepsis. S. aureus TSST-1 and E. coli LPS known as one of the important pathogens of septic shock or toxic shock induce massive release of various cytokines, such as tumor necrosis factor-alpha(TNF-α) and interleukin-1α(IL-1α) produced from peripheral blood mononuclear cells(PBMC). In contrast, limited...
Dermatophagoides Pteronyssinus Specific IgG-subclass Antibodies in Allergic Children
Soo Ja Hwang, Kyung Hyo Kim, Young Mi Hong
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1997;40(5):701-707.   Published online May 15, 1997
Purpose : Although immunoglobulin E play a major role in immediate hypersensitivity reactions, some reaginic activity is associated with IgG. Part of the reaginic activity is associated with IgG1, IgG4. In contrast with this reaginic activity of IgG4, allergen-specific IgG4 antibody is allergen neutralizing antibody and contribute to the benificial effect of immunotherapy. The role of specific IgG antibody in allergic...
Case Reports
Four Cases of Pulmonary Artery Sling with Bridging Bronchus
Seung A Lee, Jung Yeon Shim, Young Hwue Kim, Jae Kon Ko, In Sook Park, Soo-Jong Hong, Chang Yee Hong
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1997;40(5):709-715.   Published online May 15, 1997
Pulmonary artery sling with bridging bronchus is not only rare but also difficult to diagnose unless specially sought. When young infant suffers from prolonged or recurrent wheezing, possibility of underlying anomalies of the tracheobronchial trees or great vessels should be considered, even though bronchiolitis and gastroesophageal reflux are the most common causes. We experienced four cases of pulmonary artery sling with...

Hye Soon Kim, Ho Sung Kim, Jung Il Rho, Jung Yeun Choi, Young Soo Yun
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1997;40(5):730-734.   Published online May 15, 1997
Congenital coronary artery fistulas are rare congenital heart anomalies. Surgical closure of these fistulas was the therapy of choice till recently. The recent development of a new accurate coil-delivery system has enabled us to embolize the vessels. Percutaneous transcatheter coil embolization is a safe and effective approach to treating coronary artery fistulas and should be considered as the best treatment...
