Conn's Syndrome | almostadoctor

Conn’s Syndrome: This is basically primary hyperaldosteronism. It will cause hypernatreamia and hypokalaemia. It is a recognised cause of hypertension – but it is rare. It can also cause alkylosis (due to the exchange of sodium for hydrogen by some channels in the tubule). This links to brief synopsis of Conn's Syndrome on almostadoctor.co.uk

Pre-eclampsia and Eclampsia

Pre-eclampsia and eclampsia are different stages of the same condition. Pre-eclampsia can result in eclampsia at any time. Eclampsia is immediately life-threatening and often symptomatic.   Pre-eclampsia is a condition characterised by increased blood pressure, proteinuria and often oedema during pregnancy. It is typically asymptomatic, and occurs after 20 weeks, although it rarely presents before 32 weeks – but when it does, it is associated with a worse prognosis.

The pressures of pregnancy

In most developed countries except, notably, the United States, women are delaying parenthood for longer and longer. In England and Wales the latest data show that the mean age of a mother giving birth was at an all time high of 29.8 years in 2012 and that women aged 40 or over had the fastest rising fertility rate. Against this backdrop Kate Bramham and colleagues have explored a surprisingly under-researched area: the risks of pregnancy for women with chronic hypertension (doi:10.1136/bmj.g2301).

A man with a mass in the thigh

A 54 year old man presented to his general practitioner because of a fullness in his left lateral thigh that he first noticed while playing golf, although it was not related to an identifiable injury. He had a history of hypertension and fibromyalgia and was taking atenolol, ramipril, pregabalin, and tramadol but was otherwise well. The GP thought that the swelling was caused by a muscular injury, but the patient re-presented four months later because the mass had grown from a small bump to a swelling of 8 cm in diameter. It was also beginning to cause some knee stiffness but no pain. On examination he had a large firm swelling in his lateral thigh. On this occasion his GP referred him on a two week wait to the regional plastic surgery department. An ultrasound scan showed a 6 × 8 cm intramuscular mass with cystic changes and patchy neovascularity, but no inguinal or pelvic lymphadenopathy. Ultrasonography was followed by magnetic resonance imaging, with and without gadolinium contrast (fig 1⇓).
