Purpose: This study aimed to explore the relationship between serum magnesium (Mg) levels and incidence of acute kidney injury (AKI) in patients with malignancy.

Patients And Methods: Hospitalized patients with malignancy between October 1, 2014 and September 30, 2015 in Zhongshan Hospital were recruited. All relevant data were extracted from the electronic database.

Results: All 99,845 patients were enrolled and 16,082 eligible patients were divided into three groups according to admission serum Mg levels in this study. Among them, 2383 (14.8%) cases were diagnosed as AKI. The incidence of AKI showed a V trend with the increase of serum Mg level. The effect of low serum Mg level on the onset of AKI seems to be greater than high serum Mg level. Patients with low serum Mg level spent a longer time in the hospital than those with normal serum Mg level and high serum Mg level. Further, multivariate logistic regression model was used to assess the importance of serum Mg level to influence AKI incidence. There was a higher AKI incidence in patients with magnesium level 0.66mmol/L or less (aOR=2.438, 95% CI=1.696, 3.505).

Conclusion: Low serum Mg level might be a independent risk factor for AKI in patients with malignancy. Appropriate clinical intervention for serum Mg disorder may contribute to decreasing the incidence of AKI and the possibility of poor outcomes in cancer patients.
