Elevated brain aluminium and
early onset Alzheimer’s disease in an individual occupationally exposed to
aluminium: a case report
Aluminium is a known neurotoxin
and occupational exposure to aluminium has been implicated in neurological
disease including Alzheimer’s disease. Here we present the first comprehensive
and unequivocal data demonstrating significantly elevated brain aluminium
content in an individual occupationally exposed to aluminium.
A 66-year-old Caucasian man who
died with Alzheimer’s disease showed significantly elevated brain aluminium
content, 2.98 (2.73) μg/g dry weight,
n = 46, following occupational exposure to aluminium over a period
of 8 years.
That the individual developed an
early onset aggressive form of Alzheimer’s disease suggests a role for
aluminium in disease aetiology. That the exposure to aluminium was through
occupational exposure to aluminium dust suggests a prominent role for the olfactory
system and lungs in the accumulation of aluminium in the brain.
