While essential hypertension is very prevalent, secondary hypertension does occur in clinical practice with sufficient frequency to warrant special attention being given to those patients with severe hypertension who do not respond to standard treatments. The evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of secondary hypertension pose interesting challenges to the physician. In this article, three patients are described with different secondary causes of hypertension.
