Early epileptic encephalopathy with suppression burst (SB) comprises two distinct epileptic syndromes, early infantile epileptic encephalopathy (EIEE) and early myoclonic encephalopathy (EME). We reviewed etiologies, neurological outcome and clinico-electroencephalographic features of EIEE and EME. Chart records of early epileptic encephalopathy with SB(More)
Distinguishing extrahepatic biliary atresia from other causes of cholestasis in neonates and infants is important because surgical intervention before 2 months of age allows for long-term survival. The purpose of this prospective study was to evaluate the usefulness of magnetic resonance (MR) cholangiography in differentiating biliary atresia from other(More)
Larsen syndrome consists of skeletal dysplasia with multiple joint dislocations and a characteristic facies. The basis of this abnormality is a generalized mesenchymal disorder involving connective tissues. We describe our findings in a woman who was referred at 28 weeks' gestation due to multiple fetal anomalies suspected initially at an 18-week ultrasound(More)
This report describes a 6-year-old girl with a choledochal cyst associated with recurrent pancreatitis. A cystic dilatation of the common bile duct was detected by abdominal ultrasound and magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP). She displayed only one of the classic triads: abdominal pain plus pancreatitis. Cyst excision and Roux-en-Y(More)
To evaluate the application of Fluid-Attenuated Inversion Recovery (FLAIR) pulse sequence to increase the sensitivity of detecting tubers in tuberous sclerosis patients compared with fast spin-echo T2-weighted (FSET2W) image, we obtained 12 magnetic resonance (MR) images in 10 patients (mean age = 57.7 months old). Among the 12 examinations, 114 cortical(More)
A fetus with a large supratentorial cyst and cardiomegaly was encountered at 33 weeks of gestation. The cyst appeared as an aneurysmal, fluid-filled structure extending posteriorly with a finger-like appendage. Using color flow mapping, we disclosed rapid in-and-out blood flow with marked turbulence within the cyst. For evaluation of its blood supply and(More)
PURPOSE To report the hemodynamic pattern in childhood moyamoya disease before and after vascular reconstruction. METHODS We performed the xenon cerebral blood flow (CBF) study in 10 cases of moyamoya disease in last 3 year. In 6 of them, study before and after operation was obtained for comparison. Preoperative study was obtained in 2 cases and(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aims to assess the efficacy of a novel endoscopic management for congenital pyriform sinus fistula (CPSF) using potassium titanyl phosphate (KTP) laser assisted endoscopic tissue fibrin glue biocauterization in children. METHOD From 2010 to 2014, a total of 5 children with recurrent or acute suppurative thyroiditis or neck abscess(More)
