We report a case of colorectal carcinoma as a SMN, following treatment for rhabdomyosarcoma. The patient was[…][]

  • Hypomagnesemia

    Chronic hypomagnesemia is closely associated with hypocalcemia, which is caused by impaired parathyroid hormone (PTH) secretion or the refractoriness of bone and renal tubules to PTH. The dominant mechanism of acute-onset, hypomagnesemia-induced hypocalcemia is currently unclear. An 83-year-old man who had[…][]
