Abstract

Manganese (Mn) toxicity is of clinical interest because of the neurological symptoms that it can cause after exposure in occupational and/or environmental settings. The syndrome caused by Mn toxicity shares similar characteristics with Parkinson's disease, and accordingly it has been postulated that Mn exposure is a risk factor for this disease. This article addresses both the essentiality and toxicity of Mn, focusing on the neurological disorder that may ensue on exposure to high levels of this metal.
