Introduction: Primary aldosteronism (PA) is a rare but underestimated cause of hypertension. PA has been associated with increased risk of malignancy through mechanisms involving up-regulation of the renin angiotensin system (RAS) promoting an enzymatic cascade influencing carcinogenesis.

Neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs) arise from specialized cells called neuroendocrine cells spread through the body, mainly in the gastrointestinal tract, pancreas and lung. Pathological classification of Lung NENs include well differentiated NENs, that can be classified as typical or atypical carcinoids, and poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs), classified as small-cell lung carcinoma (SC-NEC) or large-cell neuroendocrine carcinoma (LC-NEC). We present a case o...
