Percutaneous adrenal venography was used in the evaluation of 50 patients with suspected adrenocortical disorders. Used in conjunction with the assay for aldosterone in adrenal venous blood, this technique led to considerable improvement in the management of patients with primary aldosteronism. Adrenal venography was also useful for the study of selected patients with Cushing's syndrome and with pure virilization. Although there was evidence that rupture of the adrenal veins had occurred in six of the patients studied early in the series, this was not accompanied by significant morbidity.
