We describe 3 patients who developed extreme hypermagnesemia due to ingestion of water of the Dead Sea, which would have been fatal were it not for the protective effects of the accompanying hypercalcemia. We emphasize the clinical features of this condition and the importance and effectiveness of early hemodialysis as the main modality of treatment.
