40 Possible Causes for Drug-induced Hypocalcemia

  • Fluoride

    Abstract A case of suicidal ingestion of sodium fluoride roach powder by a 33-year-old black woman is presented. Disposition of fluoride (mg/l or mg/kg) was: bile, 3.4; gastric content, 225; kidney, 16; liver, 8.6 and urine, 295. No history of roach powder ingestion was available at autopsy. This case illustrates the[…][]

  • Fluoride Poisoning

    Marked peaking of the T waves later recognized as being due to hyperkalemia was noted in a patient with acute fluoride intoxication before developing refractory ventricular fibrillation. Such T wave changes have not been previously described in fluoride intoxication and should alert one to the presence of[…][]

  • Epilepsy

    Hypocalcemia, alterations in bone mineral density and osteomalacia may be seen as a result of phenytoin‐induced alterations in vitamin D metabolism. ( Bazil 2003 ) and may[] […] found useful for preventing neural tube defects in women without epilepsy ( Lumley 2001 ) and is likely to prevent neural tube defects in pregnant women on antiepileptic drugs[]

  • Tumor Lysis Syndrome

    […] syndrome following antineoplastic drug therapy Use Additional Use additional E code to identify cause, if drug-induced ICD-9-CM Volume 2 Index entries containing back-references[] It is characterized by combinations of hyperuricemia, lactic acidosis, hyperkalemia, hyperphosphatemia and hypocalcemia Applies To Spontaneous tumor lysis syndrome Tumor lysis[]

  • Torsades De Pointes

    Long QT associated arrhythmias: Drug induced is most common Hypokalemia Hypomagnesemia Hypocalcemia Hypothyroidism What are the risk factors of TdP?[] , any of which can cause TdP or contribute to the risk of drug-induced TdP (17).[] Long QT ( 520msec) Bradycardia Hypokalemia/hypomagnesemia QT lability Female (2-3x higher risk) What drugs can cause TdP?[]

  • Autistic Disorder

    hypocalcemia, which can lead to tetany and death. 12 Furthermore, Na 2 EDTA contains a boxed warning stating: "The use of this drug in any particular patient is recommended[] Na 2 EDTA is often part of a standard hospital formulary; however, it should never be used for treating lead or other heavy metal poisoning in children because it induces[]

  • Gallium Nitrate

    To evaluate the mechanism of drug-induced hypocalcemia, we tested the effects of gallium nitrate upon in vitro release of 45Ca from explanted fetal rat bones.[] Approximately two-thirds of patients who receive the anticancer drug gallium nitrate develop mild hypocalcemia.[] Abstract Approximately two-thirds of patients who receive the anticancer drug gallium nitrate develop mild hypocalcemia.[]

J Bone Miner Metab. vol. 27. 2009. pp. 635-42.[] Currently, the effectiveness of this regulatory action has not been evaluated and, therefore, this study aimed to assess its impact on DEN-induced hypocalcemia using the Japanese[]

  • Pulmonary Hypertension

    We discovered that even more severe hypocalcemia was induced by the treatment with the anti-osteoporotic drug denosumab, which was started after the diagnosis of osteoporosis[] After further analysis, we assume that epoprostenol-induced diarrhea caused malabsorption (as other reasons were excluded), leading to nutritional osteomalacia with secondary[]

  • Chelating Agent

    Abstract The chelating agent 2,3 dimercaptopropane-1-sulfonate (DMPS) has been used in a mercury mobilization test for diagnoses in illnesses allegedly associated with the presence of amalgam restorations. DMPS is an accepted antidote to heavy metal poisoning. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the[…][]
