The adipose tissue and capsule of the adrenal gland and zona glomerulosa were MT positive with collagen and smooth muscles being the basic constituents of the capsule (Fig.
An ideal test based on the suppression of aldosterone production in normal cats, but presenting little or no effect on those patients with primary hyperaldosteronism, would be the best method to confirm that hyperactivity of zona glomerulosa is the responsible for the increased activity of plasma aldosterone (BISIGNANO & BRUYETTE, 2012).

The nontumorous adrenal cortex is not atrophic (B and C) but shows zona glomerulosa layer hyperplasia (arrows) characterized by a continuous and multilayered zona glomerulosa layer (D).
In our series, 3 patients had hypercortisolism, hyperaldosteronemia and hyper-androgenemia, with the histological study showing adrenal myelolipomas with hyperplasia of zona glomerulosa, zona fasciculata and zone reticularis.
(1956) Secretion of aldosterone by the zona glomerulosa of rat adrenal glands incubated in vitro.
In the adrenal cortex, this is processed into either glucocorticoids and androgens in zona fasciculate and zona reticularis (which contain the microsomal enzyme cytochrome P450c17[alpha]-hydroxylase: P450c17 and 17,20 lyase) or into mineralocorticoids in zona glomerulosa (which does not contain P450c17 and 17,20 lyase, but contains aldosterone synthase, CYP11B2).
