A 38-year-old man had Stanford type B chronic aortic dissection. Blood pressure was difficult to control, and further examination revealed primary aldosteronism. Magnetic resonance images showed a 1-cm nodule in the left adrenal gland. Graft replacement for aortic dissection under extracorporeal circulation and resection of the left adrenal gland were undertaken simultaneously. The postoperative course was uneventful, and blood pressure was controlled without antihypertensive drugs.
