dc.description.abstractA 50 year old Chinese male with untreated acromegaly of 25 years' duration is described. His serum growth hormone is markedly elevated and is not suppressed by a glucose load. This hypersecretion of growth hormone contradicts the concept that acromegaly 'burns' out after a number of years. This patient also had diabetes mellitus, pulmonary tuberculosis, hypogonadism, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, hypercalcuria and renal calculi. His death at the age of 50 emphasizes the fact that acromegalics have a shortened life span and all acromegalics should be treated when detected.
