Aldosteronoma coexisting with renal artery stenosis in secondary hypertension.

PMID:  1598748     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case of secondary hypertension due to an aldosteronoma coexisting with renal artery stenosis is reported. Tumor resection resulted in an immediate but short-lived clinical relief. Follow-up aortography revealed progressive arterial stenosis and infrarenal aortic occlusion. Differential renal venous renin and renal scintigraphy suggested renovascular hypertension. It is necessary to search for a second curable lesion if hypertension remains uncontrollable after surgical correction of an apparent cause.
