Abstract: 

Primary aldosteronism was the most common form of endocrine hypertension resulting in hypertension, metabolic alkalosis, and hypokalemia. Ventricular arrhythmia in association with primary hyperaldosteronism is an uncommon presentation that has previously been described in literature. We presented one case of torsades de pointes due to primary hyperaldosteronism.
