The primary hyperaldosteronism also known as Conn's syndrome, is a rarely diagnosed disease that commonly runs under a ‘mask' of ischemic heart disease and the primary arteria hypertension (AH). Nevertheless, the incidence of the given pathology among all patients with AH makes almost 17%. On the other hand, the absence of specific clinical manifestations of the disease makes its timely and correct diagnosis difficult which is fraught with serious complications. In the article a clinical case of Conn's syndrome and peculiarities of its diagnosis are described.
