Authors report here an interesting case of a woman who has been treated for essential hypertension for 12 years. Beside the hypertension, an extreme virilization appeared. A large adenoma, originated from the left adrenal gland have been explored behind the clinical picture. After surgical removal of the adenoma, adrenocortical hormones decreased to the normal levels. Systemic blood pressure decreased considerably the virilisation showed gradual involution. The correct treatment of the patient was a decade late, resulting in the development of encephalopathic syndromes.
