Abstract

Surgically correctable causes of hypertension are uncommon. Simultaneous occurrence of 2 such causes in the same individual is extremely rare. The authors describe a 25-year-old woman with congenital erythrocytosis, renal artery stenosis, and a paraganglioma. The possible mechanisms of renal artery stenosis in the presence of a catecholamine-secreting tumor are discussed.
