Core Tip Juxtaglomerular cell tumor (JGCT) is a rare endocrine tumor of the kidney. Typical JGCTs are characterized by high serum renin, high aldosterone secretion, severe hypertension, and severe hypokalemia, known as the “three high and one low” phenomenon. The mainstream treatment is surgery. We report an even rarer case of pregnancy complicated with JGCT, who was misdiagnosed with pregnancy-induced hypertension in a primary hospital, and the pregnancy was terminated artificially due to poor response to conservative treatment. The patient was admitted to our hospital for further treatment because her blood pressure remained high after termination of pregnancy and she was diagnosed with JGCT. The patient recovered well after surgery to remove the tumor. In this article, the case is analyzed retrospectively in the context of the literature in an attempt to explore the diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of this rare disease.
