Abstract

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).
