AbstractAbstract PDF
The frequencies of clinical laboratory examinations in Koreans teaching hospitals have been increased to the level of any advanced countries for the last decade. Considering the great increase of chemical procedures, in particular, it seems to be about the time to think of an automation. Among the many varieties of chemical tests, those related to liver functions show the greatest increasing rate. This is highly suggestive of an epidemic of infectious hepatitis probably due to an indiscriminate use of injections. It could be pointed out that those frequently used tests in western societies such as tests related to collagen diseases and endocrine disorders occupy only minor part in Korea, on the other hand, those infrequently used tests in western hospitals such as tests related to chronic infectious diseases, salmonellosis and amoebiaisis are quite frequently used in Korea. Data highly suggestive of the results of an abuse of antibiotics such as aplastic anemias, thrombocytopenias, leukopenias and resistant strains of bacteria are abundantly observed. From the view of decreased infestation rate of parasites, Increased utilization of more complicated procedures and of many other evidences, one could speculate the improvement or Korean medical standard and a better health control, however, it has to be concluded that Korea is still in the era of infectious diseases.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Since high degree of specificity of glucose oxidase for beta-glucose had been demonstrated, the use of the enzyme, glucose oxidase and peroxidase coupled with a chromogenic oxygen acceptor such as O-dianisidine for the colorimetric determination of glucose in body fluid was proposed from several investigators. In this report the glucose level was determined in the non-and deproteinized serum and blood by means of glucose oxidase method of the Sigma Company, also the recovery rate was examined by addition of the standard glucose compatible to 50 to 100mg% with following results : 1. It was found that this method was available in the determination of blood sugar without deproteinization in nonhemolytic serum. 2. When the known amounts of glucose solution were added to the serum and blood, the recoveries were ranged from 90 to 110%.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Two cases of leukemia and/or lymphoma were presented with a discussion on interrelationship between leukemia and lymphoma. The first case (32 year old male) had generalized lymphadenopathy and leukemic blood picture with 316,500WBC/cmm and over 80% immature lymphoid cells. It was diagnosed as acute lymphoid leukemia though the morphology of lymphoid cells are similar to that of leukosarcoma cells. Histopathological diagnosis of the cervical lymphnode biopsy was done independently as a lymphoma of lymphocytic type. Final diagnosis was acute lymphoid leukemia. The second case (39 years old female) also had generalized lymphadenopathy however blood picture was not leukemic with 2,150 WBC/cmm and 5% of immature monocytic cells. Histopathological diagnosis of the cervical lymphnode biopsy was a lymphnode of reticulum cell sarcoma type. Bone marrow examination and autopsy was done and the final diagnosis was monocytic leukemia of Schilling type with massive histiocytic infiltration of bone marrow, lymphnodes, spleen and liver.

AbstractAbstract PDF
A case of congenital cystic disease of middle and lower lobe of right lung in premature female infant delivered at 8 months of gestation is reported. The congenital cystic disease is relatively rare malformation. Hydramnios and anasarca in the newborn infant were present and the cysts were lined by bronchial epithelium. These clinicopathological findings are compatible with that of the case reported by Ch’in and Tang in 1949. Embryologically the condition is of the nature of a malformation which starts when lung anlage had already undergone lobulation but cartilage, arteries, mucous glands and alveoli are not yet differentiated.

AbstractAbstract PDF
An autopsy case of congenital endocardial fibro-elastosis in a newborn infant is described. The patient revealed acute fatal type of heart failure sixty-two days after the birth. Autopsy revealed grayish white mural thickening in the left ventricle, and this change also involved the mitral valvular structure showing irregular shortening and thickening. No evidence of other intra-cardiac malformation was present. Microscopically, the mural thickening consisted of exuberant proliferation of fibrous tissue as well as the elastic fibers. There were encountered scattered foci of small round cell infiltration in the thickened endocardium and subendocardial spaces.

AbstractAbstract PDF
An autopsy case of a congenital sacrococcygeal teratoma in a dead born fetus of eight months gestation is reported. The fetus weighs 1.3 kg. and reveals a large protruding tumor mass in sacral region, measuring 14×10×10 cm. and weighing 400 gm. The tumor is completely covered with skin. The tumor masses are partly cystic and partly solid with variegated appearance on cut sections. Anteriorly the tumor is partly extending into spinal canal. Microscopically the tumor is composed of various elements derived from trigerm layers. Most prominent elements are central nervous tissue with considerable amount of choroidal plexus. No evidence of malignancy is noted. There are found no congenital anomalies except for the teratoma. Brief review of literature is made.

AbstractAbstract PDF
A case of monocytic leukemia with marked proliferation of giant cells is reported and discussed about their morphological details. She admitted to Seoul National University Hospital on Oct, 11, 1968. with general malaise and pallor which had begun 40 days before. Abnormal findings in physical examination were hepatomegaly (2FB) and ill defined nodular mass on epigastrium. Her hemogram on admission revealed severe anemia (Hct. : 18%, Hb. : 5.8 gm/dl), leukopenia (900/mmg), relative lymphocytosis (78%) and immature monocytes (8%), Morphology of immature monocytes fulfilled the criteria for the diagnosis of monocytic leukemia of Schilling type. They have rather scanty pale blue cytoplasm with pseudopods and vacuoles, larger nuclei containing distinct single or multiple nucleoli and somewhat coarse chromatin patterns. Some of them looked like blast forms. In the bone marrow examination, 81% of nucleated cells were monocytic series. There were blast forms (60%), immature monocytes (16%), and giant cells (6%). These cells were similar to the monocytic cells found in peripheral blood in characters, except marked variability in size and shape. Those cells, designated as giant cells, have single or multiple nuclei with deeply basophilic, granular and/or mottled cytoplasms with many vacuoles and frequent phagocytic activity. Their nuclei contain usually 3 to 5 nucleoli and rather coares chromatin. Giant cells were easily distinguished from osteoblast, ostesoclast or atypical megakaryocyte by their characters. Though it was very difficult to distinguish them from the Reed-Stenberg giant cells and the atypical cells of reticulum cell sarcoma in morphology, the clinical course and hematological pictures are rather typical for monocytic leukemia than the lymphoma. During the 23 days of hospitalization, peripheral blood pictures showed marked increase of immature monocytes, up to 79% (Table 2). She was treated with prednisolone for 23 days without improvements and was discharged.
