Acromegaly is a rare chronic endocrine disorder resulting from hypersecretion of growth hormone (GH), typically by a pituitary adenoma, which results in abnormal musculoskeletal growth that is most often noted in the face and distal extremities. Diagnosis is made on the basis of GH and insulin-like growth factor testing.
