Answer

Persistent hypertension despite control of hyperaldosteronism may be the result of misdiagnosis of unilateral aldosterone hypersecretion, coexistent essential hypertension, hypertensive vascular damage secondary to the hyperaldosteronism, or, rarely, another cause of secondary hypertension. Pheochromocytoma and renal artery stenosis have been reported in association with APA.
