What is Acromegaly?

Acromegaly is a rare disease that develops when a benign tumor grows on the pituitary gland and secretes increased levels of growth hormone (GH) during adulthood. Clinical manifestations of acromegaly can vary, but in general the disease is characterized by somatic overgrowth (often bones in the hands, feet, and face), physical changes, or the presence of other medical conditions such as hypertension or diabetes. Left untreated, acromegaly can cause premature death.
