This is a case of magnesium intoxication in a neonate produced by an oral magnesium cathartic. A review of the literature revealed there are very few cases that have been reported of magnesium toxicity due to cathartics. There is no recommended dose for magnesium cathartics in neonates or data on their safety. A review of the management of magnesium intoxication is presented.
