Summary of "Low magnesium levels an important new prognostic parameter can be overlooked in patients with Fournier's gangrene: a multicentric study."

We evaluated low magnesium levels and three different scoring systems including the Fournier's Gangrene Severity Index (FGSI), the Uludag Fournier's Gangrene Severity Index (UFGSI), and the Charlson Comorbidity Index (CCI) for predicting mortality in a multicentric, large patient population with FG.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Magnesium chloride. An inorganic compound consisting of one magnesium and two chloride ions. The compound is used in medicine as a source of magnesium ions, which are essential for many cellular activities. It has also been used as a cathartic and in alloys.

Magnesium oxide (MgO). An inorganic compound that occurs in nature as the mineral periclase. In aqueous media combines quickly with water to form magnesium hydroxide. It is used as an antacid and mild laxative and has many nonmedicinal uses.

A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of magnesium in the diet, characterized by anorexia, nausea, vomiting, lethargy, and weakness. Symptoms are paresthesias, muscle cramps, irritability, decreased attention span, and mental confusion, possibly requiring months to appear. Deficiency of body magnesium can exist even when serum values are normal. In addition, magnesium deficiency may be organ-selective, since certain tissues become deficient before others. (Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine, 12th ed, p1936)

Inorganic compounds that contain magnesium as an integral part of the molecule.

A salt used to replenish calcium levels, as an acid-producing diuretic, and as an antidote for magnesium poisoning.
