Congenital episodic hypertension

Clin Exp Hypertens. 2005 Aug;27(6):491-6. doi: 10.1081/CEH-200067675.


We report two patients who have congenital episodic severe hypertension and dysautonomic symptoms. Their hypertensive episodes were successfully treated with antiadrenergic and antihypertensive agents. Their clinical course improved with intermittent treatment of their episodes of severe hypertension. These patients do not fit previously described disorders.
