Abstract
The role of manganese (7439965) in the human body and its toxic effects as a neurotoxic metal are discussed, with emphasis on susceptibility to manganese poisoning from pollution caused by substitution of manganese for lead as an antiknock agent in gasoline. Similarity of manganese poisoning to parkinsonism is discussed, also treatment and response to levodopa. Manganese is determined to present a hazard to anemic patients and infants, as they lack the normal protection from intestinal and blood brain barriers.
