Abstract

The presence of hyopmagnesemia related to the secondary hyperaldosteronism of cirrhosis was confirmed in 15 children and adolescents. Normomagnesemic levels returned in 6 of 7 patients treated with an aldosterone antagonist. The implications of such a response to therapy and of the progression from normal to low serum magnesium levels are discussed.
