Hypomagnesemia is a rare cause of transient pseudohypoparathyroidism. 

This case report describes a neonate with anorectal malformation, who was started on amphotericin B on day 9 of life to manage fungal sepsis. The neonate developed hypocalcemia and hypomagnesemia, and serum level of parathyroid hormone was high, along with tetany, stridor, and respiratory distress.

Hypomagnesemia induced by amphotericin B results in transient pseudohypoparathyroidism.
