Evidence of Nonadherence in Cases of Pseudoresistant Hypertension

Abstract: Resistant hypertension (RH) is characterized by the use of three or more antihypertensive drugs without reaching the goal of controlling blood pressure (BP). For a definitive diagnosis of RH, it is necessary to exclude causes of pseudoresistance, including the white-coat effect, errors in BP measurement, secondary hypertension, therapeutic inertia, and poor adherence to lifestyle changes and pharmacological treatment. Herein, we report the history of a patient with long-standing uncontrolled BP, even when usin… Show more

“…Before resistant hypertension is diagnosed, pseudo-resistance hypertension should be ruled out. Pseudo-resistance hypertension could be due to error in blood pressure measurement, white coat effect and medication nonadherence 8,9 . White coat resistant hypertension might be responsible for about one-third of the classically defined resistant hypertensive patients 10 .…”
