Hepatitis E virus (HEV) is a common cause of acute hepatitis worldwide and is endemic in Europe, including Denmark. Several non-liver manifestations have been apparent, the most important of which is neurological, including neuralgic amyotrophy and Guillain-Barré syndrome as summarised in this review. Certain neurological presentations and patients with unexplained mild to moderate increase in liver enzymes, should lead to the consideration of a HEV-related condition. Many research questions regarding HEV-related neurological injury remain unanswered and need further investigation.
