This paper describes the first in the world experience with the treatment provided in 1990 to a female patient suffering from hypereldosteronism associated with adenoma of the left adrenal. The treatment consisted in endovascular destruction of the adrenal, which was performed by means of acute occlusion of the adrenal venous bed using a sclerosing agent. The intervention resulted in a decrease of arterial pressure (AP) from 240/140 to 130/80 mm Hg. The patient has been followed up for 13 years. No recurrence of the disease has been recorded. AP is within normal.

KEY WORDS: hyperaldosteronism, adrenal adenoma, endovascular treatment.
