We consider some peculiarities of the logarithmic electron-electron interaction corrections to conductivity, which can arise in magnetic quantum wells due to spin-splitting of energy levels. The matrix elements of Coulomb interaction include different screening contributions from spin-up and spin-down electrons, which can lead to anomalous behavior of the interaction constant when the width of a spin quantum well is changed. Our results explain qualitatively the physical origin of the recently observed anomalous behavior of the logarithmic term in electrical resistivity of Co/Cr/Ag/Co layered structures (Aliev F. G. et al., Phys. Rev. Lett., 78 (1997) 134).
