Nephropathy is one of the frequent sequelae of hypertension. Arterial hypertension causes both arterial and capillary changes in the kidneys as well as development of interstitial fibrosis. Systemic or intraglomerular pressure increase leads to albuminuria and proteinuria, which in turn contributes to further damage of the kidneys. Impairment of the kidneys due to hypertension can ultimately result in terminal renal insufficiency necessitating dialysis. Metabolic factors such as hyperlipidemia, hyperuricemia, hyperhomocysteinemia, and insulin resistance can aggravate renal lesions...

INTRODUCTION: Pheochromocytomas are most commonly tumours of adrenal medullary origin. Pheochromocytoma by definition produces and secretes catecholamines. Similar tumours that do not secrete active substances of any kind are called non functioning paragangliomas. The hallmark clinical manifestation of pheochromocytoma is hypertension accompanied with various signs and symptoms in excess of catecholamines or other bioactive substances. The early diagnosis of pheochromocytoma is important not only because it offers the possibility of curing hypertension but also because unrecognised pheochromocytoma is a potentially lethal condition...

A total of 8,172 persons constituting 98.6% of the total Secretariate Population of Bangladesh were screened for elevated blood pressure. One thousand and ninety cases (13.3%) showed diastolic blood pressure of 90 mmHg or above. Those with diastolic blood pressure of 95 or above constituted 3.7% of the population. More than two-thirds of the latter group (71.6%) remained undetected indicating that vast majority of our hypertensive population remains undiagnosed and untreated. It is recommended that the misconception regarding symptomatic hypertenson should be removed by adequate emphasis on the preventive value of the control of hypertension on cardiovascular and cerebrovascular complication...
