Primary aldosteronism (PA) is one of the common causes of secondary hypertension, increasing the risk of cardiovascular disease and renal events as compared to essential hypertension, independently of blood pressure control. Primary aldosteronism (PA) is one of the common causes of secondary hypertension, and is associated with higher risks of cardiovascular, renal, and metabolic sequelae, including left ventricular hypertrophy, myocardial infarction, atrial fibrillation, stroke, microalbuminuria, osteoporosis, as well as metabolic syndrome. The present Research Topic highlights the interplay between clinical diagnosis, underlying genetic etiologies, and clinical outcome PA. Overall, it focuses on the histopathologic findings, gene mutation, the coexistence of cortisol, cosecretion, and targeted treatments of PA.
