Brain iron plays a very important role in maintaining normal physiological functioning and homeostasis. However, excess iron or dysregulated iron metabolism is a potent source of free radical formation and oxidative damage to neuronal and other brain cells. Abnormal high brain iron levels are associated with many neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, Neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation, Multiple sclerosis, Aceruloplasminaemia (CPM). etc. Here in this review we will focus on brain iron transport, dysregulated metabolism and the disease it causes.
