Peculiarities of clinical progression of aldosterone producing adrenal adenoma

Alimoukhamedova Gulrukh , Khalimova Zamira

Introduction: Aldosterone-producing adenoma (APA) in adrenals is relatively rare but diagnostically the most complex hormonal active formation in adrenals. Difficulty of APA diagnostics is that clinically these states are hardly distinguishable from essential hypertonic disease. Besides, it is difficult to differentiate them from several symptomatic arterial hypertensions (AH), such as nephrogenic AH, some types of vascular AH or continuous and mixed pheochromocytoma.<p cl...
