Abstract

We read with great interest the article by Orczyk et. al which discussed an unusual presentation and clinical course of primary hyperaldosteronism, which is frequently caused by Conn’s syndrome. Inspired by their engrossing work, we would like to address a diagnostic method that has not been employed in the aforecited case report despite accumulating evidence of its efficacy, called adrenal venous sampling.
