Hypertension occurs in more than 50 million people in the United States, and thus, it is not uncommon for it to be present in patients with other illnesses. This is particularly the case in the elderly in whom several commonly found illnesses, including degenerative joint disease (DJD), Parkinson disease, depression, and Alzheimer disease, can make the treatment of hypertension a particularly challenging proposition. This chapter addresses these disease states and their relationship to the treatment of hypertension.
