We describe a case of secondary hypertension in which aldosterone-producing adenoma (APA) and renal artery stenosis (RAS) coexisted. RAS caused a significant pressure gradient, and successful angioplasty of it improved the affected renal function but did not reduce the systemic blood pressure (SBP). Surgical resection of APA performed several months later reduced SBP. In cases of suspected secondary hypertension, other cause(s) of hypertension should be considered, if hypertension persists after correction of one possible cause.
