Primary Aldosteronism (PA) is defined as non-suppressible hyper secretion of aldosterone by adrenal glands, with consequent suppression of plasma renin activity. It was described by Jerome Conn in 1955. It is said to be an under diagnosed and important secondary endocrine cause of hypertension, and is one of the few potentially curable causes of hypertension using both medical and surgical interventions.
