[Pseudo-Conn's syndrome due to intoxication with nonalcoholic pastis].

[Article in French]

Abstract

A case is reported in a patient who presented with hypertension and quadriparesis, both due to ingestion of a new beverage, non-alcoholic pastis (an anise-based aperitif), containing glycyrrhizinic acid. Consumers, especially if they are ex-alcoholics, diabetics or hypertensives, may develop potentially serious effects from hypermineralocorticism.
