Abstract

Several recent studies support a role of dysregulated magnesium homeostasis in COVID-19. In the present narrative review, we focus on the neurological aspects of this disease, collectively known as neuroCOVID, and we propose some mechanisms by which alterations of magnesium may contribute to the involvement of the nervous system in the context of SARS-CoV-2 infection. Further fundamental, translational, and clinical research is needed to underpin the potential relationships between altered magnesium status and neuro-COVID, with potentially novel therapeutic implications.
