Abstract

Conn’s Syndrome is a rare entity amongst hypertensive patients and imaging of the aldosterone producing adenoma (APA) can prove challenging but is none the less very important for surgical planning and cure. We present two patients with MRI confirmation of APA with negative and equivocal computed tomography (CT) scans.
