肢端肥大症是肇因於人體的生長板關閉後生長激素(GH)仍過度分泌所引起的疾病。 最初的症狀通常是手部和足部腫大,前額、下巴和鼻子也可能會變大。其他症狀可能包括關節疼痛、皮膚增厚、聲音變低沉、頭痛以及視力變差。此類患者的腦下垂體會分泌出過量的生長激素,超過95%的病例是因為腦部生有良性腫瘤,稱為垂體腺瘤。


Acromegaly is a disorder that results from excess growth hormone (GH) after the growth plates have closed. The initial symptom is typically enlargement of the hands and feet. There may also be an enlargement of the forehead, jaw, and nose. Other symptoms may include joint pain, thicker skin, deepening of the voice, headaches, and problems with vision. Acromegaly is usually caused by the pituitary gland producing excess growth hormone.
