Conned by Conn\'s Syndrome

F Ismail, Z Lockhat, S Ellemdin, L van der Linde

Abstract




Conn's syndrome is a rare condition among hypertensive patients; imaging
of the aldosterone-producing adenoma (APA) can prove challenging but is nonetheless very important for surgical planning and cure. We present two patients with MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) confirmation of APA with negative and equivocal CT (computed tomography) scans.
