Ectopic aldosterone-producing tumor

Synonyms: Extra-adrenal aldosterone-producing tumor

Ectopic aldosterone-producing tumor is an extremely rare aldosterone-producing neoplasm composed of aberrant adrenocortical tissue located outside the adrenal glands (e.g. in retroperitoneum perirenal or periaortic fatty tissue thorax spinal canal testes ovaries) typically characterized by symptoms related to increased aldosterone levels (such as sustained treatment-resistant hypertension and hypokalemia) or symptoms caused by local tumor enlargement.
