Two women who first had the clinical features of primary aldosteronism in the postpartum period are described. Their gestations were virtually uneventful. After delivery, however, progressively severe hypertension (Joint National Committee VI, stage 3) with hypokalemia developed. Pregnancy may conceal the clinical symptoms of primary aldosteronism that causes unexpected severe hypertension in the postpartum period.
