    Conn's syndrome or primary hyperaldosteronism is characterized by hypertension, hypokalemia and increased ratio of plasma aldosterone concentration (ng/dl) to plasma renin activity (ng/ml per hour).

    Hypertension affects about 10 -- 25% of the population and is an important risk factor for cardiovascular and renal disease. The renin-angiotensin system is frequently implicated in the pathophysiology of hypertension, be it primary or secondary. The prevalence of primary aldosteronism increases...

    Primary hyperaldosteronism is an important cause of hypertension. Its true prevalence is still a matter of debate, since about 10% of hypertensives may have underlying hyperaldosteronism. Primary hyperaldosteronism is due to aldosterone-secreting tumours, bilateral adrenal hyperplasia or,...
