We report the case of a 48-year old man with uncontrolled hypertension and persistent hypokalaemia from an aldosterone producing adrenal adenoma treated by laparoscopic adrenalectomy. Clinicians' identification of primary hyperaldosteronism is critical as the correct treatment results in improved blood pressure control and reduced risk of complications.
