Liddle's syndrome: late diagnosis of a rare cause of arterial hypertension. Diniz 5. Objective: The aim of this article is to highlight the importance of a rare disease that causes severe arterial hypertension in children. It is important to advise pediatricians to measure arterial pressure in children in order to avoid late diagnosis and renal insufficiency. The diagnosis was established based on the clinical picture associated with the presence of chronic hypokalemia, increase of urinary potassium excretion with sodium retention and reduction of renin plasma activity, and circulating levels of angiotensin II and aldosterone. In a spite of the initial therapeutic response to triamterene, the patient developed progressive renal failure due to the delay in the diagnosis and the poorly controlled hypertension.


Heart failure is a syndrome associated with high morbidity and mortality, mainly due to episodes of exacerbation or decompensation. Hypertensive heart disease is a cause of heart failure with a high prevalence in the world. Primary hyperaldosteronism is a cause of hypertension with increasing incidence, which, independent of hypertension, can lead to cardiomyopathy with all its consequences.. This article presents the case of a fifty years old male patient with acute heart failure exacerbated with systolic dysfunction, associated with resistant hypertension and having as underlying pathology a condition of aldosterone hypersecretion primary hyperaldosteronism.. ISSN: Heart failure and primary hyperaldosteronism Case report.
