Document Summary
Title Manganese toxicity
Description Review of at risk groups for manganese toxicity
Creation Date 08 November 2006
Doc type Article
Document Abstract:
Unlike other trace elements, clear evidence of manganese deficiency in clinical practice has not been definitively identified. Evidence of toxicity in certain at risk groups has been widely acknowledged, however: those exposed to high levels of industrial exposure leading to so-called ‘manganism’ and those unable to excrete accumulating levels of endogenous manganese.
