Hypertension in Young Adults: Think Juxtaglomerular Cell Tumor!
American Journal of Clinical Pathology
Introduction/Objective Juxtaglomerular cell tumor is a benign, renin-secreting neoplasm. The tumor arises from the juxtaglomerular apparatus cells of the kidney. Because the tumor is hormonally active, patients usually suffer from hypokalemia, hyperaldosteronism, and hypertension. The typical patient population is adolescents and young adults with slight female predominance. Herein, we describe a case of a 19-year-old Asian female with a somewhat atypical presentation.
