Abstract

White coat hypertension and masked hypertension are two conditions with a controversial role in the beginning and the progression of the cardiovascular disease. We focused our attention on the definition, the epidemiology, the pathophysiology and the clinical consequences of these two conditions, with an attention also on the management. This review was based on the papers found on PubMed and MEDLINE up to August 2015. The search terms used were white coat hypertension, masked hypertension in combination with epidemiology, management and pathophysiology.
