What is Acromegaly?

Acromegaly is a condition in which the pituitary gland products too much growth hormone in adults. High levels of growth hormones can result in enlargement of hands, feet, and lips; thickening of the skin; swelling of internal organs; thickening of vocal chords, resulting in a deeper voice; expansion of the skull; pronounced brow and jaw protrusion; wide gaps between teeth; and carpal tunnel syndrome.

Treatments include taking medications, including ergot derivatives, somatostatin analogues, and growth hormone receptor antagonists.
