What is Acromegaly?

Acromegaly is a rare disease usually caused by a pituitary adenoma, a benign tumor in the pituitary gland. The pressure from the pituitary tumor causes the pituitary gland to produce too much growth hormone (GH) which leads to abnormal growth in the bodies of adults, usually in the hands, feet, and face.
