A condition of primary hyperaldosteronism resulting from an adrenal tumor in two cats is presented and was characterized by hypertension, hypokalemia, inappropriate kaliuresis, low normal plasma renin activity, and markedly increased serum aldosterone concentration. One of the two cats underwent a laparotomy, and in this case hypertension and hypokalemia resolved following the removal of an adrenal tumor.
