Abstract

Bilateral adrenal cortical adenomas in the presence of primary hyperaldosteronism is an extremely rare condition. We present a case of primary hyperaldosteronism in which a unilateral hypersecreting aldosterone- producing adenoma coexisted with a large, contralateral adrenal mass ultimately found to be consistent with cortical adenoma. Management consisted of total adrenalectomy and enucleation of adenoma from the opposite adrenal. The patient is normotensive 3 years after surgery. Enucleation as a successful approach to hyperfunctioning cortical adenomas is proposed.
