    Background In primary aldosteronism (PA) the main source of aldosterone hypersecretion is an aldosteroneproducing adenoma (APA) or a bilateral hyperplasia. Histopathology of the adrenal gland from patients with PA has been difficult, as there are no morphological criteria to ascertain which are...
