No data are available on the long-term medical management of aldosterone-producing adenomas. The objective of the study was to demonstrate the efficacy of medical management of aldosterone-producing adenomas in terms of blood pressure and serum potassium concentration and to discuss morbidity associated with medical management. Medical management of aldosterone-producing adenomas is a viable option for controlling blood pressure and serum potassium concentration.
