Background: Hypertension is a major global public health problem that affects both pediatric and adult populations. ACE I/D, AGT M235T, and ADD Gly460Trp polymorphisms are thought to be associated with primary hypertension. In the present study, we examined the frequency of these polymorphisms in a pediatric population with secondary hypertension.
