Kim Y. , Ko M. , Park C. , Nam-Goong I. , Na Y. , Kim E.

It has been estimated that as many as 10–20% of patients with essential hypertension may suffer from undiagnosed primary aldosteronism (PA). In patients who have both adrenal incidentaloma, which the functioning one must be identified. We report a case where an unilateral PA was detected on 18F-fluorodexoyglucose (FDG)-positron emission tomography (PET), and comfirmed by adrenal venous sampling.<p ...
