In the primary or hyporeninemic hyperaldosteronism, autonomous hypersecretion of aldosterone is held by neoplastic tissue, adrenocortical adenomas or adenocarcinomas, or by nodular hyperplasia of the zona glomerulosa of the adrenal cortex, also known as primary hyperaldosteronism or non neoplastic hyperaldosteronism.
In primary hyperaldosteronism with elevated aldosterone levels, there is a corresponding decrease in plasma renin activity demonstrating renin-aldosterone dissociation (Javadi et al.
