Primary aldosteronism (PA) with synchronous carcinoid syndrome is extremely rare occurrence. In this article, we describe a case of PA due to adrenocortical adenoma ("aldosteronoma") and concurrent malignant carcinoid tumor of ileum. The patient was treated with synchronous right adrenalectomy and resection of the ileum. This case is an example of concomitant presence of two types of tumors, effectively managed surgically. We report a case of a nonclassical form of multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN 1) syndrome.
