Secondary hypertension accounts for 10-15% of all cases of hypertension, and early diagnosis with identification of its etiology can be challenging. In this scenario, therapeutic management of affected patients may be difficult. Hypercortisolism is one of the possible causes of secondary hypertension, but its low prevalence and atypical clinical symptoms can lead to a delayed diagnosis. The complex clinical presentation and potential complications need a close collaboration among different clinicians in order to plan optimal or new treatment protocols.
