Adrenocortical functions in terms of urinary 17-ketosteroids (17-KS), 17-ketogenic steroids (17-KGS); 17-hydroxycortico­ steroids (17-OHCS) and aldosterone levels have been evaluated in 25 renal hypertensive patients in the present study. Urinary 17-­KS, 17-KGS and 17-OHCS were within normal limits; however, aldosterone was elevated markedly in all the patients of renal hypertension. Thus, it appears that there exist a relation between this salt retaining steroid and renal hypertension.
