We reviewed 1552 admissions to a neonatal intensive care programme; seven, all with a birth weight <1500 g, developed early onset, non-oliguric hyperkalaemia (potassium concentration >7.0 mmol/l). Although their perinatal variables were similar to those of a normokalaemic group, hyperkalaemic infants had a higher incidence of intraventricular haemorrhage and developed increased concentrations of plasma creatinine by 7 days of age.
