PENA IBANEZ, Pascual; GARCIA PEREZ, Aída  and  SANCHEZ ORTIZ, Pilar. Primary Hyperaldosteronism. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2010, vol.3, n.3, pp.235-236. ISSN 2386-8201.

Primary hyperaldosteronism is characterised by an excessive production of aldosterone by the adrenal gland, with suppression of plasma renin activity. Clinical findings are not very specific and in some patients it is asymptomatic although in almost all cases there is moderately to severely high blood pressure that is difficult to control and neuromuscular symptoms such as asthenia and paresthesia. We present the case of a 33 year old patient who came to the emergency department due to chest pain and symptoms related to the parasympathetic nervous system.

Keywords : Hyperaldosteronism.
