We compared the prognosis of patients with "white-coat" hypertension (WCHT) with that of patients with "masked" hypertension (MHT). The 10-year composite risk of stroke morbidity and cardiovascular mortality for patients with WCHT was similar to the risk for patients with sustained normal blood pressure, whereas the risk was markedly increased for patients with MHT and sustained hypertension. This indicates that conventional blood pressure measurements may fail to distinguish some patients at high or low risk.
