Circadian variations in urinary 17-hydroxycorticosteroids (17-OHCS) and blood pressure were examined in patients (n=42) with MESOR-hypotension, MESOR-normotension and MESOR-hypertension with no known endocrine disorder. Relations were sought between adrenocortical function and blood pressure. All data were evaluated using the Halberg cosinor analysis. In this study, in a separate group of patients (n=21), life expectancy was also examined as a function of the circadian blood pressure amplitude.
