[82-year old patient with hyperostosis frontalis, prognathism, makroglossia and cutis gyrata. Acromegaly]
We present a 82 year old female patient with typical acral enlargement. There were no signs of visceromegaly. Magnetic resonance imaging of the pituitary region showed a macroadenoma. Oral glucose tolerance test revealed missing suppression of the Human Growth Hormone (HGH), which could be achieved with a long acting somatostatin analog. A HGH suppressive therapy with a long acting dopamine agonist (Cabergolin) was induced. The patient died one year later following cardiovascular complications.
