• Hyporeninemic hypoaldosteronism occurred in a 49-year-old man with chronic endocrine and exocrine pancreatic insufficiency secondary to pancreatectomy and in a 64-year-old man with recurrent pancreatitis, exocrine pancreatic insufficiency, and prolonged magnesium deficiency. Hyporeninemic hypoaldosteronism has never, to our knowledge, been reported in these clinical settings before and may be masked by the malabsorption of pancreatic insufficiency.
