The role of boundary effects in the pressure of a magnetized quantum plasma is determined by evaluating the spatial dependence of the mechanical pressure tensor for several simplified model systems, namely for a non-interacting magnetized electron gas in either a slab geometry or in a harmonic confining potential. From the pressure profiles it is shown that the bulk and surface values of the pressure are related in such a way that an earlier result on the difference between the thermodynamic and the mechanical pressure in a magnetized quantum plasma is confirmed.
