Abstract

Adrenal diseases are responsible for only about 1% of cases of hypertension. However, these diseases need to be considered in many more patients with unusual symptoms, signs, and laboratory data. Procedures are readily available torule out these diseases with to rule ease and great accuracy. Those patients with positive screening tests can be subjected to more intensive work up to confirm the diagnosis. Definitive therapy, either medical or surgical, usually relieves the hypertension.
