Abstract

Aldosterone is produced int the adrenal cortex as one of the major end products of the reninangiotensin-aldosterone system. This system is one of the major blood pressure regulating sytems in the human body. In primary aldosteronism (PA) the physiological regulation of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system is overruled by excessive autonomous aldosterone secretion by one or bth diseased adrenal glands.
