Risk Factors for Cardiovascular Disease in Obese Children
Su Jin Cho, Se Jin Park, Il Tae Hwang, Young Mi Hong
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 2001;44(5):493-500.   Published online May 15, 2001
Purpose : Obesity is known to be associated with complications such as hypertension, dyslipidemia, and insulin resistance. The importance of insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia have been emphasized in obesity. Homocysteine is an emerging important risk factor for cardiovascular disease in adult, but there are less reports about homocysteine in children. Several risk factors such as blood pressure, lipid profiles, serum...

Methods : Full-term newborns(N=13) with TGA and intact ventricular septum...
The Effect of the Maternal Hypertension on the Lipid Peroxidation and Antioxidant Status in the Newborn Rat Lung
You Jin Jung, So-Young Kim, In Kyung Sung, Chung Sik Chun
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 2001;44(5):545-551.   Published online May 15, 2001
Purpose : The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of the maternal hypertension on the lipid peroxidation and antioxidant status of the newborn rat lung. Methods : We used adult female SHR(essential hypertension, 1b, A, 6-8 weeks), Sprague-Dawley white rats as a model of hypertensive dams. Breeding was accomplished by allowing female and male rats to cohabit overnight....
Surgically Treated Intractable Child Epilepsy with Focal Cortical Dysplasia : Clinical and Electroencephalographic Findings

J Korean Pediatr Soc. 2001;44(5):552-561.   Published online May 15, 2001
Purpose : Widespread use of MRI now gives us increased insights into the different expressions of cortical malformations. We carried out this study to characterize the clinical and EEG features of focal cortical dysplasia(FCD) which also caused intractable epilepsy requiring surgical treatment. Methods : A retrospective analysis was conducted in 8 children. The history of seizures, imaging studies, electroencephalographic findings,...

Case Reports
A Case of Protein-losing Enteropathy in Congestive Heart Failure : Resolution with Prednisolone
Jong-Woon Choi
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 2001;44(5):587-591.   Published online May 15, 2001
Protein-losing enteropathy can result from primary or secondary intestinal lymphangiectasia. Secondary intestinal lymphangiectasia develops as a result of lymphatic obstruction or elevated lymphatic pressure. Cardiac lesions such as constrictive pericarditis, post-Fontan procedure state, and chronic congestive heart failure increase lymphatic pressure and may cause intestinal lymphangiectasia and protein-losing enteropathy. An 11-year-old girl who underwent corrective surgery for Tetralogy of Fallot...

Byung Wook Eun, Ho Kyung Lim, Yun Kyung Kim, Yuong Ho Kwak, Jung Youn Hong, He Sun Jung, Kyung Mo Kim, Hoan Jong Lee
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 2001;44(5):592-596.   Published online May 15, 2001
Five to fifteen percent of patients affected by human immunodeficiency virus(HIV) are children in developing countries. In Korea, most of HIV infections in children have been transfusion-related, and cases of vertical transmission have been very rare so far and are usually suspected due to a maternal positive history. We experienced a case of vertical transmission of HIV in a 19...
