Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The hypertensive adolescent requires a careful blood pressure evaluation. In most cases, extensive diagnostic studies will not be necessary, particularly if the patient exhibits characteristics of early essential hypertension. On the other hand, further evaluation should not be withheld in the absence of risk factors or the presence of significant hypertension. A management plan that includes patient education is appropriate for all adolescents with hypertension. In some, but not all, hypertensive adolescents, a limited course of medication may be beneficial.
