Primary Aldosteronism in a Patient with Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease Associated with Polycystic Liver Disease

Primary Aldosteronism in a Patient with Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease Associated... AbstractPolycystic kidney disease is an autosomal dominant genetic disorder (ADPKD) associated with arterial hypertension, as a common and early manifestation. However, the combination of hypertension and hypokalemia is very rare in these patients and may have another cause. We present a case of a 45 years old man with ADPKD associated with primary hyperaldosteronism. Unilateral suprarenal macroadenoma on abdominal CT scan, severe hypokalemia and low activity of plasmatic renin led to diagnosis. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png ARS Medica Tomitana de Gruyter

Abstract

AbstractPolycystic kidney disease is an autosomal dominant genetic disorder (ADPKD) associated with arterial hypertension, as a common and early manifestation. However, the combination of hypertension and hypokalemia is very rare in these patients and may have another cause. We present a case of a 45 years old man with ADPKD associated with primary hyperaldosteronism. Unilateral suprarenal macroadenoma on abdominal CT scan, severe hypokalemia and low activity of plasmatic renin led to diagnosis.
