Aminoglycosides are administered frequently to neonates with suspected sepsis. We report the association of hypocalcemia in term and near-term neonates receiving gentamicin therapy for ≥4 days after a change in dosing from every 12 h to every 24 h. The possible association with a higher gentamicin dose and longer dosing interval is described.
