Résumé
The influence of acute stimulation by ACTH, upright posture and angiotensin II on plasma aldosterone levels was assessed in human panhypopituitarism. While stimulation by ACTH in hypopituitary patients induced a plasma aldosterone increase similar to that observed in healthy controls, stimulation by upright posture or by infusion of angiotensin II resulted in a lower plasma aldosterone response than in controls in most of the patients. These results suggest that the presence of an anterior pituitary hormone, most likely ACTH, directly or indirectly exerts a permissive action on aldosterone secretion in man.
