Prevalence[edit]

11% in resistant hypertension only, hence probably overreported in the past doi:10.1016/S0140-6736(08)60834-X JFW | T@lk 21:41, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Conn's Syndrome is caused by an adenoma[edit]

Restriction of Conn's to adenoma - according to whom??? That's really not what we've been taught in the UK. Just leave it alone don't start making up stuff yourself on here. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.150.52.65 (talk) 21:07, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

It's a widely recognized distinction - Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine describes Conn Syndrome as an aldosterone-producing adrenal adenoma (Ch 342: Chapter 342. Disorders of the Adrenal Cortex). Most cases of primary hyperaldosteronism are not caused by Conn Syndrome, although Conn's Syndrome is a type of primary hyperaldosteronism. The restriction is a fair one, and not invented by a wikipedia editor. Rytyho usa (talk) 21:14, 10 March 2013 (UTC)
