Electrolyte disturbances occur commonly and are associated with a variety of characteristic neurologic manifestations involving both the central and peripheral nervous systems. Electrolyte disturbances are essentially always secondary processes. Effective management requires identification and treatment of the underlying primary disorder. Since neurological symptoms of electrolyte disorders are generally functional rather than structural, the neurologic manifestations of electrolyte disturbances are typically reversible. The neurologic manifestations of serum sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium disturbances are reviewed.
