Aldosteronoma in childhood: a review of clinical features and management

, : Aldosteronoma in childhood: a review of clinical features and management. Journal of Pediatric Surgery 29(10): 1388-1391

Primary hyperaldosteronism is rare in children and usually results from bilateral adrenocortical hyperplasia. Adrenal adenoma causing primary hyperaldosteronism (aldosteronoma) in children is even rarer, with only eight reported cases in children under 18 years of age. Aldosteronoma is a very rare, correctable cause of childhood hypertension. A review of all the reported cases, including that of the authors, is presented. Also discussed are the available biochemical and radiological investigations, the preoperative medical management, the surgical treatment, and the postoperative management.

Influence of concomitant vitamin D deficiency for visualization of parathyroid adenomas. AIM of the study was to analyse the influence of a concomitant vitamin D deficiency on the results of (99m)Tc-MIBI studies in patients (pts) with primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT). Between January 1998 and May 2004, 71 pts with pHPT had undergone...
