Abstract

ZANINI, Maurício et al. Dermatologic aspects in acromegaly. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2004, vol.79, n.4, pp. 491-494. ISSN 1806-4841.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962004000400010.

Acromegaly is a rare endocrine syndrome characterized by mesenchymal hyperplasia. Its manifestation is usually extremely insidious. As it precociously develops with cutaneous alterations, the dermatologist is often the first medical professional to be sought by the patient. The authors describe the dermatologic and clinical findings of this disease.

Keywords : acromegaly; adenoma; growth hormone.
