          Abstract

          Systolic and mean blood pressures were shown to increase from means of 159 ± 7 and 111 ± 7 mm Hg to 174 ± 8 and 122 ± 6 mm Hg, respectively (p < 0.05 in each case), after a 2-hour intravenous infusion of CaCl<sub>2</sub> during which serum magnesium levels were found to decrease from 1.8 ± 0.06 to 1.4 ± 0.05 mg/dl (p < 0.0005). A significant increase in blood pressure was not seen when MgSO<sub>4</sub> was given intravenously concomitantly with the CaCl<sub>2</sub> so that serum magnesium levels did not decline. We conclude that hypercalcemic hypertension is due in part to altered serum magnesium and is prevented if serum magnesium is sustained.
