Abstract

Primary aldosteronism is common cause of secondary hypertension. As a result of high blood pressure it can lead to severe complications, including aortic dissection. We would like to present a case of 40 year-old patient who had resistant hypertension despite administration of multiple drugs. During diagnosis primary aldosteronism was found, complicated by aortic dissection. After introducing the appropriate treatment we managed to significantly reduce the cardiovascular risk.
