Case history: A 74-year-old gentleman with primary aldosteronism (PA) was referred for the ‘MATCH’ study – a prospective comparison of 11C-metomidate PET CT with adrenal vein sampling. He took no exogenous steroids.Investigations: Na 147 mmol/l, K 3.7 mmol/l, aldosterone 496 pmol/l, renin activity <0.17 nmol/l per h, random cortisol 247 nmol/l and concomitant ACTH 9.3 ng/l. Two overnight dexamethasone suppression tests recorded values ...

A 65-year-old Afro-Caribbean gentleman, with a >10-year history of hypertension, frequently recorded blood pressures of >160/80 mmHg. His serum electrolytes showed Na+ 145 mmol/l and K+ 3.2 mmol/l. MRI demonstrated 13 mm left medial-limb adrenal adenoma. His hypertension was uncontrolled on treatment with amlodipine 10 mg OD, spironolactone 50 mg OD, losartan100 mg OD and doxazosin 16 mg OD. Although his quality of life was reduced, and he dislike...

Primary aldosteronism (PA) is considered the sole, often curable, cause of hypertension in 5–10% of patients. Yet there has been only one RCT, and practice has changed little since the advent of CT scanning. Adrenal vein sampling (AVS) and adrenalectomy remain the standard, invasive interventions, leading to a 50% reduction in pill count as the average clinical improvement.Study DesignIn MATCH (Is Metomidate PET-CT superior t...
