The authors have studied on 50 patients hospitalized in the Adrenal Pathology unit of the Institute of Endocrinology, the etiopathogeny of arterial hypertension (AH) in hypercorticism and the therapeutic implications, arriving at the conclusion that in 20% of the cases AH was probably due to an increased activity of renin-angiotensin and in 47% to elevated(More)
The authors have studied on 25 cases of hypercorticism, one of the mechanisms of producing arterial hypertension, the renin-angiotensin system.
